Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
In El Paso, Texas, federal judge has dismissed the indictment of Cuban exile militant Luis Posada Carriles on immigration and fraud charges.
U.S. District Judge Kathleen Cardone issued a written order dropping the charges accusing 79-year-old Posada of lying to immigration officials about how he sneaked into the country in March 2005.
The trial of the controversial anti-Castro Cuban militant was set to start next week, but the judge made the surprise decision on Tuesday in El Paso, Texas. The topic of how Posada entered the United States has received so much attention because so far the U.S. government had not found a country that would want him.
Posada Carriles is a wanted man in Cuba and Venezuela for the alleged 1976 bombing of a Cuban flight where 76 several innocent victims died. .
We're joined now by Richard Becker who is the West Coast Director of the peace group The Answer Coalition and a member of the Coalition to Free The Cuban Five.
Becker talked about the Posada case, the existence of anti-Castro terror groups in the U.S. and why Cuba sent a group (The Cuban Five) into the U.S. to infiltrate the terror groups.
