Posada Carriles Could Be Deported to Venezuela

Latin American terrorist and CIA agent Luis Posada Carriles’ extradition trial began today. Judge Abbot, faced with federal prosecutors’ position that Posada should not receive asylum in that country, Abbot ruled that Posada could be deported to Venezuela to face charges for the bombing of a Cubana de Aviación passenger airplane, in which 76 people died. Read on for a bit more of the story… This afternoon, immigration judge William L. Abbot, before beginning the hearing, announced that the Cuban-born terrorist, if not granted asylum in the United States, would be deported to Venezuela.  

Also today, as this report from Reuters notes, the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), the Chilean Miguel Insulza, stated that if there is evidence against him, Posada “should be extradited to Venezuela to face justice.”

The hearing will continue tomorrow; it is not expected to last more than five days, and the terrorist himself could testify at any moment…
