US Deciding about Sending Posada Out of the Country But Not to the Country Where He Is Charged

19 May 2005 at 4:09:22 PM


Why, when the US insists that the man charged with terrorism in the UK, Babar Ahmed, be extradited to this country, wouldn't Posada be sent back to Venezuala, where he committed the terrorist act? Double standards?

MIAMI - A Cuban militant whose presence in the United States opened the government to allegations it was sheltering a terrorist was charged Thursday with entering this country illegally — a move that could lead to his deportation.

Luis Posada Carriles is wanted in Venezuela in connection with the deadly 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner.

The United States did not immediately say whether it actually plans to deport Posada, or where. But U.S. authorities have essentially ruled out sending him back to Venezuela, where the bombing plot was allegedly hatched, and could instead choose a third country that has no intention of prosecuting him....

The case has put the U.S. in an awkward position because Cuba's  Fidel Castro has branded Posada a terrorist and said the Bush administration would be guilty of a double standard in the war on terrorism if it gave Posada asylum.
