'Mr Bush, you're harbouring a terrorist jet bomber'

Caracas, April 23: President Hugo Chavez accused US President George W Bush of harbouring the convicted bomber of a Cuban airliner.

"I accuse the President of the United States of protecting an international terrorist," Chavez said on Sunday.

"They have freed the father of all terrorists: the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles," Chavez said.

Posada Carriles, a former CIA agent, was released last week from a Texas jail, though Venezuela and Cuba want him extradited in the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner, which crashed, killing all 73 persons aboard.

"We have asked for his extradition for more than two years. We sent them the evidence. This gentleman was in prison (for the bombing) here and he escaped," Chavez said.

"Mr Bush, you are harbouring a terrorist, which makes you a terrorist," he said.

Chavez echoed Bush's similar accusations after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States by al-Qaeda, which he said was "harboured" by Afghanistan's government.
