Cubans Insist That Washington Shields An International Terrorist:
Luis Posada Carriles is a Cuban-born exile who once both was an alleged CIA agent and head of the Venezuelan secret police before the rise of Hugo Chavez. He was trained at the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia.
Posada was arrested and convicted of bombing a Cuban airliner in 1976, killing 73 people, but escaped in 1985. He has been supported by right-wing Cuban exiles in Florida, and used as a CIA asset in El Salvador (fighting leftist guerillas) and Nicaragua (aiding the CIA funded and trained "contras"). During this time, he was also involved in the alleged smuggling and sale of cocaine to support the contra war.
He is now living secretly in the United States and seeking asylum.
THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION'S WAR ON TERROR IS A SHAM.
