This should come as no surprise to anybody who is familiar with this case; it clearly shows how “selective” the U.S. justice system is. Of course, it could not be any other way. This individual, besides the crimes mentioned above, was also actively involved in the dirty war carried out by the CIA against revolutionary governments in Latin America. Posada Carriles knows too much and could become a nightmare for the U.S. if the authorities of this country do not protect him.
If he relatives of Posada’s victims both in Cuba and Venezuela had any hopes that they would finally get some closure for their pain, they were wrong. If the peoples of Cuba, Venezuela, Panamá, Nicaragua, and El Salvador, just to name a few, thought that justice would be served in the North to compensate for the affront inflicted by this criminal to them, they too were wrong.
The fallacy of the trial, the manipulation of the truth, and the verdict are evidence of the disdain and arrogance with which the U.S. ignores the suffering and the right to justice of Latin America.
For how much longer do we have to stand the insult?
