Venezuela in Cuba 'bomber' demand (Posada)
6 October 2006

Venezuela has intensified its calls for the US to extradite one of its nationals who it blames for the bombing of a Cuban plane 30 years ago.

The country's foreign minister, Nicolas Maduro, demanded the immediate extradition of Luis Posada Carriles, calling him a dangerous terrorist.


At a news conference, Mr Maduro said that for the first time in history, US justice officials had publicly recognised that Mr Posada could have been involved in acts of terrorism and that if released, he would pose a danger to the community at large.

Mr Maduro said a recent speech by Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez at the UN had put public pressure on the US not to release the terror suspect.

But the diplomat also said that Mr Posada was, in his own words, the Bin Laden of the Americas - backed by the Bush family.

Posada - bin Laden of the Americas. That's a keeper.

1. Those latinos don't understand
That only those that attack America or it's interests are terrorists. The rest are freedom fighters.
