Ros-Lehtinen: En Honduras, abrazaba a Micheletti, hoy “denuncia” a Maduro

La congresista norteamericana Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, que abrazó efusivamente al golpista Micheletti – quien la calificó entonces de “recompensa de Dios” –  cuando expulsó el Presidente Zelaya de Honduras,  ahora acusa a Nicolás Maduro de violaciones a los derechos humanos.

La Representante de Miami en la Cámara baja, que preside el grupo de apoyo al terrorista Luis Posada Carriles; que fue elegida defendiendo al asesino Orlando Bosch;  que se solidarizó con los golpistas de Ecuador y Bolivia; que intervino ilegalmente a favor de los banqueros prófugos Isaías de Ecuador; que apoya sistemáticamente a Israel en sus agresiones genocidas contra los Palestinos; ahora se dedica a predicar su forma de “democracia”.

De acuerdo con EFE que reporta diligentemente sus palabras, la politiquera de Miami expresó en rueda de prensa que presentará “lo más pronto posible” en Washington una legislación “que busca bloquear las visas, la compra de propiedades y las transacciones financieras” a aquellos que han estado vinculados a la “represión a las protestas”.

También habló de proponer  medidas “que incluyan la expulsión de diplomáticos venezolanos y la reducción en la importación de petróleo de Venezuela”, entre otras sanciones, “para proteger a los venezolanos que se oponen al Gobierno del presidente Nicolás Maduro”.

No satisfecha de tantas elucubraciones, siguió defendiendo a Leopoldo López, el líder fascista detenido, con la misma energía que apologizó, en otro momento, a  Alejandro Peña Esclusa, amigo de López y jefe de UnoAmérica, agrupación de nostálgicos del Plan Cóndor.

TELL ME WHO YOUR FRIENDS ARE AND I WILL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE …. A MURDERER.

 

Guillermo Farinas in his visit to Miami said that “exposes his life in Cuba every day to improve your people” ….. Taking pictures with the confessed criminal Luis Posada Carriles, is a shame!.

 

Is this what you want for Cubans? Or is this your true face?

He did not settle for the salary paid by USAID and the U.S. Government. He was to get to their feet to the violent groups of Miami, which for fifty years has killed more than 3,000 Cubans, and tortured and disappeared another thousand in Latin America.

See here the photos of their meeting. He was very comfortable with the murderers of his people.

 

Do you have any explanation to give to the families of the victims of the Cuban plane exploded in midair with the bombs that put Posada Carriles?

 

 

 

Release the Cuban Five, US Historian Jane Franklin Advocates

By Radio Angulo / Saturday, 03 August 2013 08:14

Obama can free the Cuban Five. Photo: PL  American historian Jane Franklin urged US President Barack Obama to use his faculties to put an end to the unfair imprisonment of the Cuban Fuve – antiterrorist fighters held in US for about 15 yeras. 

“You have the power of free these men to let them return to Cuba in your hands,” wrote Franklin to the US President in a letter published Friday.

Gerardo Hernandez, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez y Rene Gonzalez (in Havana since April 22) were arrested on September 12 ,1998 in the city of Miami, Florida, and were taken to solitaire confinement for 17 months.

So it began the saga of the unjust trial and imprisonment of the Cuban Five, as they are known internationally-emphasizes the author of several books, including “Foreign Affairs 1959-1982,” and “Cuba and the United States: A Chronological History.”

She said that thanks to the Cuban Five and Cuba in the fight against terrorism the lives of not only Cubans but also U.S. citizens have been preserved. Franklin takes the opportunity to remind Obama that international criminals like Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, a man who walked free in Miami until his death, blew up a Cuban airliner in 1976, killing 73 people.

The Central Intelligence Agency and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) knew at the time that Posada Carriles and Bosch masterminded the attack, she stresses.

The first one “boasted of masterminding” the bombing campaign that hit restaurants and hotels in Havana in 1997 and 1998, killing and wounding an Italian businessman or others, says Franklin.

In his letter, the historian makes a historical analysis of the context in which the Cuban Revolution triumphed (January 1, 1959) and expresses its destruction has been a persistent goal of U.S. foreign policy since.

This Caribbean island has had a history of harassment and siege that began under then President Dwight Eisenhower with the economic, financial and commercial or explicitly designed to starve the Cuban people or which has remained unchanged to this day today, the writer points out.

The International Committee for the Release of the Cuban Five, a group that published the letter, said that on August 5, a convoking is opened for thousands of messages are sent to the White House, as well as telephone calls and letters. / Source: PL

The Cuban Five Case Inside-Out

by Dawn Gable/ July 30, 2013

featuredimage

 

HAVANA TIMES ¡ The endnotes of What Lies Across the Water* opens with: ¡The truth is ¡ everybody lies.¡ But I believe author Stephen Kimber when he says that as part of his research for this book he read the more than 20,000-pages of United States of America vs. Gerardo Hern¨¢ndez ¡ from opening gavel to final sentencing.¡

His detailed presentation of the case of the Cuban Five¨C five counter-terrorism agents, who operated in Miami and who refused to plea bargain when the larger network of Cuban agents they belonged to was arrested, is evidence of the painstaking digging Kimber has done to bring readers this full-blown account.

Although the subtitle is The Real Story of the Cuban Five, this book is much more than that.  It peers into all the nooks and crannies of the last couple of decades of the ongoing saga of Miami-originated violence against the Cuban people, its leaders, and anyone perceived as friendly to its government or economy. It shines a light on famous villains such as Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch and introduces lesser known perpetrators like Francisco Chavez Abarca and Santiago Alvarez.

Relying on news articles, interviews, court evidence and government documents, in both English and Spanish, Kimber reports on the failed attempts by the U.S. and Cuban governments, in the late 1990¡äs, to cooperate on mutual national security concerns, employing a cast of characters ranging from U.S. diplomat Michael Kozak and Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez as well as the FBI and Cuban State Security.

He draws from documents obtained through FIOA requests, filed by the National Security Archives and investigative journalists, to give shape to the newest piece of the puzzle¨C Alan Gross, a USAID subcontractor hired to carry out aspects of the State Department¡¯s regime change program inside Cuba, who is currently serving a 15 year sentence in a Cuban prison.

Far from being a boring account of deeds and misdeeds, Kimber employs eloquent prose and an enjoyable style to draw the reader into the tangled layers of terrorism and murder, espionage and deception, propaganda and myths, life sentences and impunity, meanness and hatred, love and sacrifice, romance and solitude, patriotism and delusion, good intentions and bad, and lies, lies, and more lies.

It reads like a page-turner novel, but it¡¯s not. It is the unbelievably tragic history of modern U.S.-Cuba relations. Kimber, a professor of journalism at Halifax University and author of several other books, uses his brilliant turn of phrase to help his readers navigate through the tall tales and ¡°official truths¡± guiding them to a more realistic view of the landscape and the prospects for diplomatic relations between the two feuding countries, for freedom for Alan Gross and the four Cuban agents still under lock and key, and for a life without fear of violence and intervention for the Cuban people.

I have only one criticism of the writing: the constant use of the term ¡°America¡± when referring to the United States.

One of hundreds of billboards in Cuba proclaiming that the Cuban Five will return to the island.

The only shortcomings I can mention in terms of content is, in reality, just my desire to keep the conversation going. Kimber begins his book listing its main characters, and ends it with a ¡where are they now¡ section. I would like to have seen more names on this lists.

For example, Michael Kozak, who was head U.S. diplomat in Cuba during the hotel bombing campaign and whose role in the FBI-Cuban State Security cooperative efforts are outlined in the book, is currently the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, which receives large sums of Cuba regime change money, which it funnels into the National Endowment for Democracy.

Hector Pesquera is another. As the book explains, he was the FBI agent in charge who ordered the arrest of the Cuban agents and later ordered the FBI¡¯s files on Posada Carriles to be destroyed. While focusing his attention on the Cubans, he completely missed the 9-11 attackers who were preparing, within his jurisdiction, to murder thousands of U.S. citizens. Pesquera is currently the Superintendent of the Puerto Rico Police and recently there has been speculation that he is in the running to replace Janet Napolitano for Secretary of Homeland Security.

Lastly, whatever happened to the agents who turned state¡¯s evidence against their brothers? Their sentences were up long ago. Surely they were not welcomed back to Cuba, but would they be safe in Miami. The big unsolved mystery in the case of the Cuban Five is how the FBI was originally tipped off to the agent network. Is there any reason to believe that one of those agents was a snitch all along?

I have been following the case of the Cuban Five for over a decade and have translated dozens of articles about their case. I have also translated entire books on exile violence against Cuba, but this book offered tidbits that I was unaware of, drew connections that I had not noticed before, and most importantly to me, confirmed some suspicions and dispelled a few rumors that I was unsure about. I am confident that even expert Cubanologists will find What Lies Across the Water useful, informative, at times infuriating, but always entertaining.

Miami sing in the near death of the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles

 Edmundo Garcia ( http://www.latardesemueve.com )

Luis Posada Carriles

Luis Posada Carriles

In 2011 Luis Clemente Posada Carriles faced a trial in El Paso, Texas, for immigration fraud and making false statements on its entry in 2005, not for the many crimes they should, forged and missions in Central America, South America and even in the United States, specifically in Miami, where some have him as a hero. It is no coincidence that the list of his admirers are many fans ofYoani Sanchez , Elizardo Sánchez ,Antonio Rodiles and Berta Soler , nor is it a product of chance that some of the journalists who are dedicated to celebrate the old and New dissidence are the samethat led to the conviction of the Five and defend, with more or less brazenly, the false innocence of Posada Carriles. And it is no coincidence because basically they all are but parts of one pitch to walk Cuban policy from within the 1959 revolutionary victory until today.

In a press release infamous for El Nuevo Herald, January 10, 2011 entitled “Posada Carriles appear in court in Texas,” Mr. Juan Tamayo inherited manipulative wording former reporter Wilfredo Cancio Isla and identified the terrorist as “exile militant “.The trial of Posada Carriles in El Paso brought as witnesses, among many others, the presenter of the TV then Miami Maria Elvira Salazar, argued in favor of the terrorist the radio and television commentators Luis Conte Aguero, Tomas Garcia Fuste, Armando Perez Roura and other Yeomen of violence. As demonstrated by the lawyer José Pertierra in a series of articles published in the portal CubaDebate, that trial was a circus.The sitting Judge Kathleen Cardone   came to look like a living art scholars where they discussed the terrible pictures sunday of Posada Carriles and not a place to judge once their crimes. As everyone will remember, the terrorist was released from charges and received triumphantly in Miami, his attorney Arturo Hernandez was awarded shamefully for having solved “the best case” Florida in a year, while Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez gave Posada the keys to “the city that progresses.”

But among all these tributes to Posada Carriles Miami one of the most outrageous was the meeting in the cave Batista Radio Mambí a terrorist group, including Posada himself with the former Panama President Mireya Moscoso, who gave him a pardon several of them. It was embarrassing to listen to Armando Perez Roura opportunistic rave for that gang of abusers formed by Santiago Alvarez, Luis Posada Carriles, Gaspar Jimenez Escobedo and Pedro Remon, and repulsive the chites and congratulations Ms. Moscoso, and its reaffirmation of that if given the opportunity the pardoned again. The Miami terrorists present in the study Mambí Radio and the station’s general manager Armando Perez Roura, promised to Ms. Moscoso a statue in that vaunted Cuba to fantasize and they never come. At that time I wrote an article about the fact that you can read in the web programEvening Moves ( http://latardesemueve.com/archives/506 ), several Panamanian media, sharing their outrage, did me the honor of publishing .

But the media complicity with Posada Carriles Miami does not stop there. On the last night, in the same station Radio Mambi and in the same program Armando Perez Roura, a trio of characters linked to Alpha 66 consists of Reynol Rodríguez, Dionisio Suarez and Ernesto Diaz Rodriguez announced a new tribute in Miami the terrorist. They chose to farm act Crescent, of Reynol Rodriguez and a date on Sunday May 19, the day that marks the anniversary of the fall in Two Rivers independence Apostle Jose Marti Cuba. The parallel between Luis Posada Carriles and Marti is an affront to the entire Cuban nation regardless of political creed that upholds. Throughout the program the guests were munching Perez Roura comparison. Apparently he refused, but immediately said that Posada and Marti took up arms to liberate Cuba, that the two were sacrificed for freedom, etc.. A daring unforgivable.

Dionisio Suarez repeated more than once homage to Posada Carriles show next Sunday sought admiration “as is life” that the warriors should honor him “before they go to the other world.” How are you phrases were repeated during the program, from which it can be inferred that even their own friends give him long to live the terrorist.

In yesterday’s program on Radio Mambí was promoted tribute to Posada Carriles in the said farm as a family celebration, the kind that are made ​​in the Cuban countryside. But it should be very gentle and apolitical a meeting where their own organizers say that on reaching the door, after donating $ 20 to the terrorist, I must say slavish password: “I am an admirer of Posada Carriles and share their struggle” . In other words, the struggle to bring down civilian aircraft and fight for bombings at hotels in Cuba where innocents die.

Reynol Rodríguez, Dionisio Suarez and Ernesto Diaz Rodriguez is rated themselves as warriors, said they were ready to stand with arms in Cuba if the Cuban people rebelled.Something that certainly are trying to achieve some of the new so-called dissidents, bloggers and independent journalists self titled. Some listeners are quenched with incitement to violence by these terrorists and a lady came to propose to begin to cut water pipes and do sabotage to cause chaos on the island. In this environment the guest Ernesto Rodriguez took off the mask and confessed that “We do not care to call us terrorists.”Everyone, including the crawler of Armando Perez Roura, form one gang, so sent greetings and special invitations to his accomplices Guillermo Novo, Pedro Remon, Gaspar Jimenez Escobedo, Hector Fabian and others of the same ilk in West Palm Beach, Tampa and Houston.

Luis Posada Carriles may be dying, but this so-called tribute may be a new lie. Although in the trial of El Paso was exonerated terror charges liar, everyone knows in Miami that Posada Carriles is a blackmailer and storyteller. And he who does not believe me ask Pepe Hernández, director of the National Foundation Cuabno American, Posada Carriles who pulled wads of language threatening to go before U.S. authorities to take their dirty laundry. Posada Carriles is known to have a terminal illness, but Hispanic network television did not really run it showed at the recent funeral of Enrique Ros, father of Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and personal friend of the terrorist. The most likely to die in Miami Posada quietly without responding to a court for all the crimes he has committed. Since Coco Fariñas (who probably has not been to Cacahual to worship and to Santa Iphigenia Maceo to honor Martí), just visit the grave of Jorge Mas Canosamounting him stop those who have visited the grave of Machado, Prio or Bosch Avila, perhaps a tomb of Posada Carriles in Miami works for an upcoming “dissident” to leave little to Fariñas. Most likely a court put him atop the terrorist deserved condemnation, but truth that should respond well below all the pain in this world.

A bipartisan group in the House of Representatives of the United States yesterday presented an initiative to the government to impose a range of sanctions, including the denial of visas, against “officials ALBA countries that are involved in serious human rights abuses” .

The ultraderehistas Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Florida, and Albio Sires, DN.J., both vinulados ubanoameriana the terrorist mafia, want to apply sanctions for government officials from countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA ), or persons acting on their behalf, “if the U.S. determines that Executive is involved in serious human rights abuses” in those countries, presented Efe.

The list of sanctions include denial of entry visas to the United States, the freezing of assets and a ban on financial transactions in the country, according to a statement from the office of Ros-Lehtinen, who chairs the ommittee support terrorist Luis Posada Carriles in Miami.

The bipartisan measure, contained in 23 pages, also calls for the United States, through its representative at the Organization of American States (OAS), “defend, protect and strengthen the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights”. The controversial body is virtually a dependency norteameriano State Department.

The measure presented yesterday, said Ros-Lehtinen, requires accounts to the “oppressors”.

A Glimmer of Hope

by BENJAMIN WILLIS

Although most progressives would agree that last Tuesday’s elections did little to resolve the overwhelming list of challenges that faces our nation there is a glimmer of hope that the United States is inevitably moving towards a policy of engagement and normalization with Cuba. Barack Obama and the Democratic party showed that they were able to listen to voices within the Cuban American community crying out for a new stance towards the island of their families and their heritage over the din of the distorted hysteria projected by the historical Cuban exile community of southern Florida. As a result, Obama took a record amount of the Cuban American votes in Miami-Dade County and Democrat Joe Garcia easily beat the hapless Republican incumbent David Rivera for Florida’s 26th congressional district.

These victories for candidates who have demonstrated a clear intention to work towards a more “normal” policy with Cuba reflect the desire for both political parties to acknowledge the raw statistics of public opinion polls in both Florida and across the United States concerning current policy towards Cuba. After decades of voting for Republican politicians who were willing to cozy up to criminals such as Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada Carriles in order to project a hard-line approach the Cuban Americans of Miami are abandoning their blind support for the policy of economic strangulation that is the United States embargo towards Cuba.

Outside of Florida, gains in the senate by Democrats in races that were all but gift-wrapped for the Republicans just three months ago bode well for what will eventually be a long slog through both houses in order to finally dismantle the Helms-Burton Act, the codification of the odious embargo that will be universally denounced in the UN this Tuesday, November 13th.
