As the Bush Administration wages its so-called war against terrorism, US officials have said repeatedly that the USmay attack any country harboring or supporting terrorists and that there is no statute of limitations when it comesto prosecuting them.
This weekend was the 25th anniversary of another act of terrorism–the bombing of a Cuban jetliner carrying nearly100 people, including Cuba’s Olympic medal winning fencing team. The men responsible for that act of terrorism wereCuban exiles trained by the CIA. Their story, and their connection to US officials, tells us a lot about thepriorities of the Bush Administration and the US government when it comes to fighting terrorism.
