Posada Carriles Case Exposes Bush Administration's Double Standard on Terrorism

Interview with Jane Franklin, author of "Cuba and the United States: A Chronological History," conducted by Denise Manzari

On May 17, Cuban exile Luis Posada-Carriles was detained by customs and immigration police near Miami and transported to the former Homestead Air Force Base in south Florida, reportedly flown there by the Department of Homeland Security.

Posada, 77, an anti-Castro militant seeking asylum, entered the United States illegally through Mexico in March of this year, making his way to Miami. The Bush administration claimed ignorance of his whereabouts, despite a formal asylum petition submitted by Posada.

Venezuela has requested his extradition, which now forces the Bush administration to contend with the issue. The Venezuelan government charges that Luis Posada Carriles, along with Orlando Bosch, masterminded the bombing of Cubana Airlines Flight 455, which exploded shortly after takeoff from Barbados on Oct. 6, 1976, killing 73 people.

Posada Carriles, who has only been charged with entering the U.S. illegally, was planning to leave the U.S. just prior to his arrest. In Havana, more than a million Cubans had marched past and protested at the U.S. Interests Section there May 17, demanding Posada Carriles' arrest by the U.S. government.

Jane Franklin is the author of "Cuba and the United States: a Chronological History." She spoke with Between The Lines' Denise Manzari about Luis Posada's terrorist activities and the double standard the Bush administration exhibits in its fight against terrorism.

"Cuba and the United States: a Chronological History" is published by Ocean Press. For more information on the Posada case, visit www.disinfo.com or www.bardachreports.com
