“To be America’s enemy may be dangerous–but to be her ally is Fatal” part XXIV

If you can read this story (Spanish) without retching you have better self-control than this crackpot.

“I feel wounded, frustrated and swindled” says a CIA-trained Cuban freedom-fighter who repeatedly put his life on the line to free Cuba from Castro and the U.S. from its most rabid enemy–the one who came closest to nuking her. This hero just got out from 20 years in Castro’s prisons and is being denied a U.S. visa.

  1. Welcome to the post 9/11 world. This is why Posada got in the trouble he got in here. This is a big CYA by the US. Anyone associated with anything that even sniffs of asymetrical warfare, even if sponsored by the US, is going to get tossed under the bus. The CubaEncuentro piece on the matter says that this isn’t the first time that a dissident with a violent track record was denied a Visa by the US.

    This is not to say that I believe for a second that Sturgis in the latter part of his life was in anyway associated with the CIA. I don’t doubt that Ramos worked for Sturgis, I just think that Ramos has to be the biggest idiot in the world if he believes that Sturgis was still CIA.

  2. Let’s just say that the kindness of strangers is highly overrated. They’ll be happy to use you if that suits them, but when you’re no longer useful, let alone inconvenient, well…you do the math.

  3. So how long till Obama sends Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch to his new “el Paredon” …

    At this one Rev Wright gets to yell the “fuego !” while Bill Ayers directs the shooters.

    “Welcome to the post 9/11 world. This is why Posada got in the trouble he got in here.”

    While 9/11 politics undoubtedly plays a part in Mr. Ramos denial of a visa to the US, me think that politics plays a bigger role. There’s no doubt in my mind that Obama would ever deny a former African National Congress operative [and you know that the ANC were terrorists] a visa to the USA.

  5. -“Humberto – Please do not lump all who fought Batista in same pot”
    Larry, Humberta did not say ‘all who fought Batista’ were “Fidelistas”.

  6. Hey, you all lay off Mandela. He’s not just a sacred cow, he’s a Sacred Cow. Makes no difference what he did or to whom; he had the good sense to pick the “proper” ideology. Besides, he’s both left-wing AND black, which means Sacred Cow squared. I still remember Charlize Theron practically melting in his presence. It was very, uh, uplifting. I mean, she’s a movie star (or was), so she must have access to higher knowledge, not to mention “empathy” (even if she can’t touch Sonia Sotomayor in that department). So Mandela is a bosom buddy of Fidel Castro, the Stalinist-dicator-for-life and archenemy of the US and all it stands for. So? You got a problem with that? What are you, one of “those people”? Get outta here.

  7. Well this just proves the point that if it look like a duck and walks like, guess what? It is!
    Our Adminstration is not on the side of freedom and I’m being nice today.
    Maybe he can go to Honduras and put a bullet between Zelaya’s eyes the next time he stands at the border, just a thought.

  8. Humberto:

    My apologies, as “La Conchita” said you did not mean to include those who merely tried to fight for freedom.


  9. There were many anti-communist groups which deposed Batista. Had I been fighting age around that time I might have as well. But I sure as hell would not have joined the July 26 movement.

    I don’t think that’s what Humberto meant Larry.
