In a conversation with El American, Rodríguez explained how he carried out some operations and his leading role working with some Bolivian officials to get to the location of “Che” Guevara on October 8, 1967. He was decorated by the CIA with the Intelligence Star and nine Crosses for Gallantry from the Republic of Vietnam.
He stressed that his work was mainly to advise the Bolivian Army, which, in his opinion, was not well-prepared. “We had the responsibility to provide intelligence for the battalion that we had been preparing when Guevara showed up in Bolivia and they found out he was there,” Rodriguez said.
