What’s With The Che-Fidel Photos On The Wall? Is Alan Gross’ Attorney Scott Gilbert A Commie Fan Boy??

What’s With The Che-Fidel Photos On The Wall? Is Alan Gross’ Attorney Scott Gilbert A Commie Fan Boy??How ghastly ironic. Or is it?

Alan Gross, the U.S. contractor released Wednesday after five years of captivity in Cuba, was greeted with a, well, surprising art choice while preparing to make a statement on U.S. soil this afternoon.

Visible in the background of a widely circulated photograph of Gross, his lawyer Scott Gilbert and spokesperson Jill Zuckman: An image of Che Guevara, the divisive revolutionary figure.

Zuckman told The Post via e-mail that the photograph was taken at the Gilbert LLP law firm.

The print, from a distance, appears to be the same image that’s often emblazoned on T-shirts, posters and other memorabilia. That iconic image is based on a photograph by Alberto “Korda” Diaz Gutierrez; we have more on the history of the image here.

Guevara was a leader in the Castro brothers’ revolution to overthrow the Batista dictatorship in Cuba and replace it with a communist government.

Huxley’s Ghost’s keen eye caught that the pic above Che is one of Fidel golfing with Che.
