On this day in 1967, Cuban revolutionary and guerrilla leader Ernesto Che Guevara, age 39, was killed by the world's largest terrorist organization; the CIA. Che Guevara's last words were, "I know you've come to kill me. Shoot coward, you are only going to kill a man. I knew you were going to shoot me; I should never have been taken alive. Tell Fidel that this failure does not mean the end of the revolution, that it will triumph elsewhere.
