World Social Forum : US "War on Terror" a Sham While it Harbors Its Own Terrorists

The World Social Forum for the Integration of Peoples convening in Cochabamba, Bolivia points to a US double-standard in its so-called "war on terror." How can a nation both claim to be fighting terror and harboring a man who was responsible for the 1976 bombing of an airliner?

Recently declassified CIA documents -- now in the National Security Archives of George Washington University -- indicate that Luis Posada Carriles, a Cuban exile and former CIA operative, masterminded the attack of Cubana Flight 455 30 years ago that killed 76 people. Another former CIA operative involved in the attack, Orlando Bosch, was pardoned by President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

Our new Defense Secretary-designate Robert Gates had dealings with Posada during the illegal Iran-Contra arms-for-hostages crimes of the 1980s.

When will the "liberal" media stop ignoring history?
