Declassified documents made public Tuesday link a Cuban exile seeking U.S. asylum — long regarded as a violent opponent of Fidel Castro — to a plot to bomb a Cuban airliner in 1976 and indicate he was on the CIA’s payroll for years.
One FBI document dated Nov. 3, 1976, quotes a confidential informant saying Luis Posada Carriles was among a group that discussed “the bombing of a Cubana Airlines airplane” before an attack at a hotel bar in Caracas, Venezuela.
The Bushies are saying well golly Posada may have snuck in the US but we just don’t know where he is. Uh huh. I suggest they ask their paramilitary right wing pals in Miami where Posada is.
Cuban President Fidel Castro on Tuesday called for a massive demonstration next week to demand the United States arrest a man accused of plotting to kill him and masterminding the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner.
The ANSWER Coalition has been at the forefront of opposition to Posada, holding press conferences in the belly of the beast in Miami and organizing letter campaigns.
20,000+ letters sent to Bush & Congress to say: No asylum for Luis Posada Carriles, Extradite him to Venezuela
You can help keep the pressure up.
The incredible response to A.N.S.W.E.R.’s campaign to extradite anti-Cuban terrorist Luis Posada Carriles has led to people sending more than 20,000 emails and letters to Bush and members of Congress. Weeks of letter writing, press conferences and rallies has successfully drawn attention to the obvious hypocrisy of the Bush administration’s so-called “War on Terrorism.”
This campaign is making a big impact. Yesterday (May 9), the New York Times ran a major front-page story on the case. Today, there was a follow-up editorial.
Let’s keep up the pressure – right now – as it is making a big difference. Please send a letter or another letter and forward this appeal to a friend or family member and urge them to act now. It is easy for you and your friends to join this campaign. A.N.S.W.E.R. has set up an easy-to-use mechanism to facilitate sending a quick email to George W. Bush and the Congressional Representative in your District and Senators in your state with your demands. We have provided a sample letter, but you can customize your message to get your point across.
