It's about time for our representatives to stand up for Luis Posada Carriles!


This shows that we have at least 3 terrorists in our own U.S Congress. How much longer can our "War on Terror" be credible.


I hope this gets picked up by the National and International news services. This should pretty much drives the nail in the coffin for those who question the United States' stance on "Terrorism". How do you people in Miami vote for legislaturers of this little personal integrity?

In other words, the "Cuban-American Three" have no faith in the FBI's ability to gather and process information objectively.

Committee for Normalization

Shameful and the full expression of hypocrisy.

It appears that these three Representatives had to placate the extreme hardliners in their districts. And it also shows they are not leaders but more like puppets.

This distorted morality on Cuba and Castro only hurts our community. If Mr. Posada is indeed involved with the killing of innocent lives in downing an airliner and the bombing of a hotel in Havana, he needs to be brought to justice.

The comment above, by Mr. Figueira, makes as much sense to me as the comments of the three Florida congressmen. Thank you, Oscar, for bringing it to our attention.

New developments in the Luis Posada Carriles case!


There doesn't appear to be much moral clarity among these three, does there? Terrorism is terrorism regardless of who is responsible for it.

Fidel and Posada son la misma cosa: two sides of the same, violent, monstrous coin.

My question to the Liberal Castro loving folks here . How does anyone here know for a fact he's a terroist, because the media says so? because Castro and Hugo Chavez says so? Ignorance is bliss my friends. Is it possible in anyones imgination that the airplane that he allegedaly blew up was the works of Castro and turn it on Posada? BTW He's free now because our government lied and manipulated the interview on Posada.

Jose Gonzalez, Sr.

With this "last" move our government has lost whatever little credibility it had left, if any. It is a mockery to promulgate the "war on terrorism" when we allow one of the great ones to go free. We need to "forward" this gentleman to the place where he holds citizenship, normal course of action to take, which is to Venezuela. We have signed treaties you know.

With regard to the Congressional delgation and their position only one item is worth remembering: Was it not Diaz-Balart who said that communism was dead in Cuba at the time that Fidel Castro annnounced the transfer of power? The question should be: Hon. Congressman, Where were you and your family the day that Batista left Cuba with millions of dollars and what position did your father hold in an administration that killed thousands? Amen.


Miami,where the sewers of America empty..The dog is loose,and his 3 trainers jump up for his defense...What do you expect from these idiots who daily grab at anything they can to keep the anti castro ATM machine well oiled...What do you expect from the 3 white guys from Miami..Like the other 3 guys from Miami,these guys can only cook up bulshit.2 clicks to the left.

It´s funny that some of you think it should be publicated internationally. Let´s say we already know this in Europe since it happened. That´s just the way America works, like in the Movie Lord of War. So don´t worry we know enough maybe more political dirt than the americans to. Free press can´t exist in capitalist environment, too much money could be lost if uncommon information ist revealed. Pressure groups would cut the advertising.
It´s good that the americans start to realize the have double standards.
