Word spread like bushfire about a series of schemes to block the 26th of July Movement's road to glory. For instance, senior military officials led by Batista loyalist General Francisco Tabernilla approached one of Castro's underground leaders in Havana. They offered to replace Batista with a civil-military junta comprising of commander of army groups in Santiago. Colonel Florentino Rosell, Tabernilla's emissary, stated that the U.S. would quickly recognize the new government. Rebel intermediary Pepe Echemendia told Castro that he was informed that the proposal was tackled with the “the North American Embassy.” Echemendia also stated he knew about other anti-Batista schemes.
