MAX
GONZALEZ
also
known
as
Max
Gorman,
was
interviewed
at
the
Miami
InternatJonal
Airport
. lie
was
advi
se
d
of
his
rights
signed
a
waiver
of
ri
ghts
form~
and
furnished
the
following
information:
He
has
been
involved
actively
in
the
International
Anti-Com:;lUni::;
t
Bri
g
ade
IACB ,
also
known
as
Secret
Army
Or
ganization
(S
AO),
for
about
f
our
ye
ars.
He s
aid
that
to
his
knowledg
e
FRANK
FIORINI
is
the
only
IA
CB
leader,
although
he
feels
that for
the
op
er
ation
whi
ch
ended
abortively
at
Belize
British
Honduras,
FIORINI
must have
been
workin
g
with
some
group
or
persons
outside
th
e IACB
as
FIORINI
do
es
not
have
the
f
inan
ces
or organizational
ability
to
mo
unt
s
uch
an
op
era
tion.
Upon
refl
ec
tion
however,
he
conceded
that
the
cash
outlay
for
this
venture
had
been
minimal
in
that
the
men
were
not paid
f
or
their
services
f
urnis
hed
their
own
trans-
portation
and,
for
the
most
part
their
ow
n
food, lod
gi
ng
and
equipment.
He
also
i
ndicat
ed on
refl
ec
tion that
the
organi
zatio
nal
work
for
th
e
operation
had
actually
been
very
slipshod
and
amate
urish.
He
said
that
any
indication
by
FIORINI
that
the
true
leader
of the
expedition
was
a
Colonel
FRANCISCO
QUESADA
would
be,
in
his
opinion,
a
falsehood.
He
said that
he
believ
es
Colonel
QUE
SADA
does
not
exist
but
is
a
fictitious
scap
egoat
up
on
whom
FIORINI
would
place
responsibility
for
this
operation
in the
event
it
misfired.
In
support
of
this
he
read
from
a
leaflet
concerning
QUESADA
whi
ch
had
been
fu
r-
nished
seve
ral
months
ago
by FIORINI
to
those persons
who
had
responded
to
a news
paper
ad
calling
for
volunteers
to
fi
g
ht
communism
in
Latin
Ameri
c
a.
This
leaflet
described
QUESA
DA
as
a
Latin
born
in Argentina,
who
had
seen
actio
n
~n
four
wars,
had
served
in
all
branches
of
the
services
was
a
pilot
and
an
expert
in
conventional,
guerrilla
and
counter-
guerrilla
war
f
are.
QUESADA
was
further
des
cr
ib
ed
in
the
leaflet
as
the
prime
organizer
of

associates.
He
has
been
captured
and
tortured
by
two
foreign
armies.
·.
At
the
present
time
he
is
traveling
throughout
Central
and
South
America
and
is
raising
funds
to
form
a
mercenary
army
to fight
the
communists
throughout
the
Americas.
Regarding
the
above
alleged
QUES D
background,
GONZ LEZ
noted
that
FIORINI
considers
himself
an
expert in
conventional,guerrilla
and
counter-guerrilla
warfare,
has
claimed
to
have
seen
action
in
several
wars,
is
a
pilot,
claims
to
have been
captured
and
tortured
by
the
Japanese
while
serving
as United
States
Marine
in
World
War
II,
and
again,
by
the
BATISTA
government
in
Cuba
while
serving
with the
C STRO
forces
in
Cuba
before the
downfall
of
BATISTA.
He
further
noted
that
FIORINI
traveled
in
Central
and
South
America
earlier
this
year,
reportedly
in
an
effort
to
make
arrangements
for the
exchange
of
political
prisoners
st ll
held
by
CASTRO,
but perhaps
to
also
raise
funds
for
the
just-concluded
unsuccessful
operation against
communist
Cuba.
He
said
that
based
on
these
similarities
in
the
backgrounds of
FIORINI
and
QUESADA, whom,
to
his
knowledge,
no
one
but
FIORINI
has
ever
seen,
he
feels that
Colonel
FRANCISCO
QUES D
is
a
fictitious,
and
idealized,
FR NK
FIORINI.
He
said
that
the
IACB
plan
before
leaving
Miami was
to
train
in
Guatemala
for approximately
six
weeks, then proceed
by
boat
to
Cuba
on
November
l,
1968,
and
to
conceal
themselves
in
a
pre-arranged
Sierra
Maestra Mountains,
Oriente
Province,
hideout
until
next January
1,
when
a
raid
to
capture
political
or
military
prisoners
would
be
carried
out, these
prisoners to
be
later
exchanged
for
Cuba-held
political
prisoners.
He
said
that
he
and
all
the
others
involved
were aware
of
this
general
outline
of the
planned
operation
before
depart
ing
from
Florida
individually
or
in
small
groups.
He
added,
however,
that
he was
not
to
participate
in
the
Cuba
phase of
the
operation.
His
part,
he
said,
was
to
furnish his
Spanish
language
ability
during
the
training
period
in
Guatemala and
to
give Spanish
lessons

to
those
in
the
force
who
did
not
s
peak
Spanish.
He
was
to
remain
with
the
volunteer
gro
up
until their
departure
for
a
sea
rendezvous
with
the
craft
which would
take
them
into
Cuba.
He
was
to return to his
l~rida
home.
He
said
that
the
plans
to
train
in
Guatemala
had
to
be
changed
because
t
was
learned,
after
the
IACB
group
arrived
in
Mexico
that
communist
guerrilla
activity
in
Guatemala
wa
s
too
intense
at
the
time
to
permit
training
to
be
undertaken
there,
although
he
spent
several
weeks
in
Guatemal
a
reconnoitering,
escorted
by
an
unknown
Indian
guide
who
was
paid
for
his services
and had
no
connection with
the
IACB. He
added
that
to
his
knowledge
none
of
~he
other
members
of
the
IACB
group
entered
Guatemala.
He
recalled that
he
departed
Miami
in
behalf
of
;> ~~e~r
ation
aloneonAugust
16
1968
by
Greyhound
arli
exas,
where an
undis
closed
male
 
picked
him
up
by
prearr
ngement
in
a
1968
maroon
two-door
hardtop Chevrolet
with
a
Florida license tag.
He
and
his
compani
on
whom
he
declined
to
name
entered
Mexico
at
Matamoros
near
Brownsville
Texas
on
approximately
August
22 1968.
He
said that
he
entered
Mexico
as
M X
GORM N
and
showed
the
Mexican
border
guards
a
Florida
driver's
license in
that
name.
He
said
that
he
had
purchased
this
driver's
license,
already
filled
out, in Florida
several
weeks
previously
especially
for
this
operation.
He
declined
to
furnish the
name
of the
p
erson
who
sold
him
the
driver's
license.
He
said
that
he and
his
compan
ion
·
proceeded
inside
Mexico
to
Ciudad
Mante
for
about
two
days
then
to
San
Andres
Tuxtla
for
one
day
then
to
Oaxaca
where
the
driver
of
the
car
went
his
separate
way.
At
Oaxaca
he
picked
up
an
M-lcarbire and
some
ammunition
from an
undisclosed
person
then procee
ded
by
bus
to
San
Cristobal
Las
Casas.
He
looked
over
this
area
for
a
possible
base
camp
but did
not
find
a
suitable
site.
He
then proceeded
to
Comitan
again
by
bus
wher
e
he
met
three others
of
the
IACB
group.
From
Comitan
he
proceeded
into
Guatemala
accompani
ed
by
an
Indian
guide, as previously
mentioned
and
confirmed
during
his several
weeks
inside
that
country
