Unbelievable.. the terrorist that has been in the news seeking asylum from the US says he came to the United States thru the Mexican border and took a bus to Miami.




Posada Carriles tells the Miami Herald he no longer feels he has to lie low
Posada was freed last August from a Panama prison after outgoing President Mireya Moscoso pardoned him in connection with an alleged plot to kill Castro in 2000. He told the Herald he ended up in Guatemala and from there went through Belize to Mexico, crossing into the United States in a vehicle with migrant smuggler at the Texas border at Brownsville.

Posada said he was nearly caught on a Greyhound bus journey to Miami by authorities but managed to persuade immigration officials who boarded the bus he was just a harmless old man who had forgotten to bring his papers.

Terrorist Suspect Seeks Asylum in the US
Cuba 'plane bomber' was CIA agent

Forget for a moment this guy's personal issues with crimes charged against him, just remember he is a wanted terrorist and he was able to successfully hide in the USA for the past 2 months. Why doesn't the current administration do more about our porous borders with Mexico? This case just proves the point that this country is not serious about a war on terror, if it was, it would have fortified our borders so that "terrorists" like Luis Carrilles Posada can't just walk across.

Now back to Posada, the United States had better not be hypocritical and grant asylum to this man. He should be deported asap back to Cuba or to Venezuela where he faces charges. Politics and personal differences between the Bush Administration, Castro and Chavez should not take precedent in the War on Terrorism. Terrorists should all be treated the same, whether they are arab and muslim or former cia operatives and from communist country.

I can't believe Immigration officials allowed him to slip thru their hands even though he had no papers with the excuse, "I'm just an old man". Our immigration policies and border enforcement really really really sucks.



www.local10.com...
Recently declassified FBI and CIA documents verify that Posada, a former Venezuelan security official, worked for the CIA for years and was connected to the airliner bombing by informants.

Posada entered the United States in spite of being on an immigration watch list. Local 10 has learned that he entered the country from Mexico through Brownsville, Texas. He said he then took a bus to Miami.

Posada said he fooled a couple of immigration officials right here in South Florida who could have arrested him.

When Posada arrived in Fort Lauderdale on the bus, he said immigration agents checked the bus to see if there were any illegal aliens from Mexico on board. Posada told officials that he did not have his papers and that he was just an old man. The immigration officials let him continue on his way. Those same agents removed three other people from the bus who were illegal immigrants. They will be returned to Mexico.

okay I must be missing something here or you have all become drones and the your tin foil hats have failed you. Allah and camel spiders gets more attention that the real issues in War on Terrorism?


The whole basis, validity, of the War on Terrorism is being played out here and none of you have noticed? What happens next to Luis Carriles Posada? Why does it matter?

Because the proof you need to see if the War on Terrorism is a legitimate is coming with what the United States Government does with Mr. Posada.

don't you get it yet?

You have a former CIA operative, wanted terrorist (by definition), in US custody, wisked away on a black hawk, Cuban assassinators and spies everywhere, Venezuela played their card already, demanding he be extradited and now we have him in our hands and have to make the move...

How real is this war on terrorism, does it apply to all terrorists or only Muslims and Arabs, watch and see what happens next and then decide how legitimate this war is.

Please read and decide for yourself, form an opinion you might be surprised that it affects another opinion you have and then another and then maybe another...

Please don't tell me it's only me and Muaddib have any interest in this story. Maybe it's a crazy Floridian thing, i just dunno

I agree WW wholeheartedly, an eeenormous DHS, yet porous border paints a bleak picture even to the untrained eye. The new attorney general isn't complaining either. This Posada demonstrates to the silent strategist(s) how simple it in fact is. FBI/CIA verification establishes guilt by association at the very least & he needs to be expedited back to Venezuela ASAP to prove his innocence/guilt. I'm not into candy-coating creeps.

in case anyone is interested with following the developments:

U.S. charges Cuban militant Posada with illegally entering country


MIAMI -- U.S. immigration officials charged Cuban militant Luis Posada Carriles on Thursday with entering the United States illegally, which could lead to his deportation to another country. Venezuela wants Posada in connection with the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials also said that Posada would be held without bond pending a hearing before an immigration judge scheduled for June 13. The precise location of that hearing was not immediately specified.

I am very interested in this story worldwatcher, and do appreciate the updates.


Indeed, you have a very serious problem on your southern border. While I think this should be a priority of your government, it seems they do not agree with me.

I noticed, but in my quest to reduce the stress in my life, and my blood pressure, I'm keeping my mouth shut.

The Minuteman Movement is a great idea if the government won't watch our boarders we have to. Funny a friend of mine is in iraq because he wanted to protect his family if he wanted to do that he should have listened to me and stayed home with them!

For that matter, nobody should have left for Iraq and they should be patrolling our borders instead.

I feel betrayed by the politicians on this issue. It's about time a wall is built on the Mexican border.

Y'all know what this means, right?

The US has absolutely no ability to prevent terrorists from crossing the border. None. If 'they' want to attack, all they need is the will to do it.

I have voiced my opinion about our southern border many times. I said in a post that Al-Qaeda must be dead since they have not hit us again with the ease of access to our country through Mexico.

I've always said they need the borders open in order to continue "looking" for terrorists. Well..........

The only conclusions I can draw from this are:

1) The terror threat is greatly exaggerated.

2) The 9/11 conspiracy theorists are right.

3) The current administration realizes terror attacks can help them pass laws and policy that further their agenda.

4) Or, as someone said above, Al Qaeda is dead (I seriously doubt this).

I sometimes wonder if the reason we haven't seen another attack yet is because it wasn't really Al Qaeda who attacked us. What are they waiting for, if that's who did it? Wouldn't you think they'd keep attacking? And don't give me that BS that we're safer because of the paranoid wars we've waged against invisible enemies. This is one example that it's just not so.

I agree something needs to be done about the border. Maybe stiffer sentences for coyotes and smugglers.
