    One of the many disgusting people who carry out the seamy side of US foreign policy - running guns to terrorists, drug smuggling, killing women and children and a bit of torture on the side.

    If there is a hell, then a place will be cleared to accomodate this trash...

    "..Luis Posada Carriles, a CIA-trained killer responsible for the worst terrorist act carried out in the Americas in the twentieth century, died in a veterans’ home outside of Miami Wednesday morning. He was protected by Washington until the end, living freely in the US despite extradition demands from several countries to face charges of mass murder.

    Previously classified CIA files released in November of last year in connection with the declassification of documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy confirmed the long-standing charges that Posada was responsible for organizing the murder of 73 civilians in the 1976 bombing of a Cubana de Aviacion airliner.

    The CIA had recruited Posada Carriles in 1965 after he had served two years in the US Army.

    He had previously been trained by the CIA at its secret paramilitary camps in Guatemala in preparation for the abortive Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. The agency classified him as a demolitions expert.

    From 1964 to 1968, he was involved in a series of bombings, assassination attempts and other covert activities against the Cuban government.

    In 1973, according to one of the recently declassified CIA files, the agency suspected him of working with known drug traffickers to smuggle cocaine into the US. “Despite above info indicating WKSCARLET-3 [the agency’s code name for Posada Carriles] involved [in] this case, agent worth salvaging and we should make effort to do so,” the file concluded.

    Posada obtained Venezuelan citizenship and, with the CIA’s backing, became a senior officer in the country’s secret police, the DISIP, in the early 1970s, carrying out the torture and extra-judicial murder of suspected leftists. It was from his office in Caracas that he plotted the airline bombing.
