What would you say if a known terrorist was about to be freed on $350 thousand dollar bail? Would it anger you? Of course it would if this country truly believes in capturing and punishing terrorists. What would be your reaction if this was the last recorded message made by a pilot of a downed air plane, “We have an explosion aboard, we are descending immediately! ... We have fire on board! We are requesting immediate landing! We have a total emergency!"... just before all on board perished.”?
I hope it would be one of outrage. By the way, those were the last words of this pilot before Cubana flight 455 went down on October 6th, 1976 taking the lives of 73 innocent people. It was downed by this terrorist whose name is Luis Posada Carriles.
I have written of this terrorist for over a year now. It has come to my attention that Judge Kathleen Cardone who is a federal judge will more than likely issue this bail amount for Carriles. I am still trying to come to grips that a terrorist that took the lives of 73 people would even get bail.
As all eyes are on Washington, D.C. concerning the actions of U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, this is what International Answer reported the impending release from custody of Carriles by the federal judiciary; “The responsibility for freeing Posada lies with the Bush administration. Acting on behalf of Bush, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales who refuses to classify Posada a terrorist, or as a danger to the community, which is required for his continued detention. Gonzales and Bush are refusing to honor Venezuela's extradition request so he can be tried there for the Cuban plane bombing, where he plotted the heinous crime. If he is not extradited he should be prosecuted for his crimes in the U.S.”
