<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The arrest of accused airline bomber Luis Posada Carriles in Florida poses a thorny problem for United States President George Bush, who has vowed to battle terrorism anywhere, analysts said.<br><br>
Declassified US documents released last week link Posada Carriles to the bombing of a Cubana airliner in 1976, in which 73 people died. They also said the CIA paid him $300 a month in the 1960s, and he worked for the CIA at least from 1965 until June 1976.</td>

I guess when the U.S. is the one putting money in their pockets, it's allowed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

"the question is, does the US really consider terrorism conducted against Cuba to be fundamentally different to the other types of terrorism that the US is fighting?"<br><br><br><br>
I guess a terrorist is a person who doesn't kill people for the "right" reasons.

Indeed...<br><br>
"While many have thought that Saddam first became involved with U.S. intelligence agencies at the start of the September 1980 Iran-Iraq war, his first contacts with U.S. officials date back to 1959, when he was part of a CIA-authorized six-man squad tasked with assassinating then Iraqi Prime Minister Gen. Abd al-Karim Qasim."<br><br>

So, I guess this government directly supported terrorist activities. I knew it. We have to bomb ourselves right away! Befor it's too late!
