Huber Matos fought along side the Castros agaisnt Batista. When he complained in a letter to Fidel about the hard left turn that the "revolution" seemed to be taking, they sent Camilo Cienfuegos, his good friend, to arrest him. Cienfuegos dissapeared and Matos wound up in jail.
He now believes that there's a ''command crisis'' in Cuba, pitting members of the ruling class against each other, and hopes that armed forces and interior ministry officials will step in to lead the island toward democracy.
Dissidents ''form the democratic . . . leadership inside Cuba [and] are called upon to play a future role next to those military people who, in due course, opt to follow the changeover,'' he added. ``The Castro model is exhausted and I have faith that democracy in Cuba has a future.''
