CIA-trained 'terrorist' in US court


english.aljazeera.net



Accused of killing 73 in an airline bombing, Luis Posada Carriles charged with immigration violations, not terrorism. Posada, 82, a Cuban-born Venezuelan citizen, was considered the mastermind of the Cubana airline bombing, and a CIA-trained explosives expert who would stop at nothing in his personal vendetta against Fidel Castro

Convicting Posada of any criminal actions he committed does not justify or in any ways exculpate Fidel, Raul and their regime for their past and present criminal actions; from the summary executions by firing squad to their murder of women and children on the tug "13 de Marzo" to their killing of four civilian pilots over international waters and including their ongoing abuses of human rights and denial of freedoms to the people of Cuba. Never do the wrong, immoral and criminal actions of two opposing parties negate one another they must all be held accountable for their acts therefore if you prosecute one you must prosecute the other, bring the Castro brothers before a court to answer for their crimes as well.

From the article:


"The terrorist activities of Posada Carriles are part of the [current US court] indictment, but they are not what he is being prosecuted for," said José Pertierra, a Cuban-born Washington lawyer who is representing Venezuela's interests at the trial. "He is only being prosecuted for lying about them [attacks]… to an immigration judge in a naturalisation hearing."

Well of course this guy isn't going to be tried by the U.S. Gov't for murdering 73 people - he was paid by the U.S. Gov't to do so. But if you LIE to a judge about murdering people, well then, the long arm of the law will find you.

After the Cuban attack, and his escape from prison, Posada returned to the CIA's payroll in the 1980s, supervising arms shipments to the Contras in Nicaragua as part of what became known as the Iran-Contra affair, a murky scandal where the US government funneled money from arms sales to Iran—its official enemy- to right-wing militias in Nicaragua.


To me he is CIA

About time this murderer faces some kind of justice. I wonder if his handlers will ever face justice? (That was a rhetorical question)
