Bolivian General: "Che sent to die"

Retired Bolivian Gen. Gary Prado Salmon, who in October 1967 captured Ernesto "Che" Guevara, said that the leadership of the Cuban communist party sent the iconic Argentine-Cuban guerrilla leader "to die in Bolivia" because they didn't want to put up with him any longer.
The Bolivian Rangers, including Prado, were trained by the US Green Berets* who were dispatched to Bolivia to prepare the local troops for the fight against the guerrillas.
*(my recommendation to read this book about some Special event coordinators who arranged the party)
