Bush Sat on Evidence of Cuban Terror

By Robert Parry

Earlier this year, as accused right-wing terrorist Luis Posada Carilles successfully sought to be freed on bond, the Bush administration possessed secret evidence implicating the 79-year-old Cuban exile in terrorist bombings in Havana a decade ago.

The evidence, an FBI document based on interviews with confidential sources in the late 1990s, linked Posada to a wave of hotel bombings in 1997 that killed an Italian tourist. Administration lawyers have now filed the document in court as part of the illegal immigration case against Posada that is scheduled to resume in Texas on May 11.

Thank you for your articles on this subject.
I have been following this for a while now via Consortiumnews and other sources.
The fact that GHW Bush, and now the Administration of his son, allowed this terrorist to run free is proof positive that the so-called war on terror is a sham and an excuse for military intervention.

I am half way through William Blum’s “Killing Hope” and there is no doubt that the United States IS the all powerful “Global Terrorist Network” this Administration points to to justify invasion and slaughter in the Middle East.

Sadly this has been the case for years. As you no doubt know a former CIA station Chief estimates that in the last fifty years the US has been directly, or indirectly, responsible for the deaths of six million people, mostly in South America but in the Middle East as well, in the name of fighting Communism.

When the USSR let the US right wing down by quitting the “Game”, the powers that make their living via thievery, death, and destruction had to find a new enemy.
They chose “Terrorism” as our new enemy because it is faceless, and can therefore be anybody, and because they know terrorism can never be defeated since it is not tied to any single State.
Terrorism is their Perfect Enemy.

I never thought I would say this, but I am ashamed of my country. I am ashamed of what it has done and is doing, to poor people around the world.
And I am ashamed that most Americans are ignorant of the atrocities that have been committed by their Government.
Thank you for helping to shed some light on that injustice and ignorance.
