Here we go again.
It has been revealed that Papa Che lobbied hard for the presidential pardon granted to Oscar Lopez-Rivera, the Puerto Rican FALN terrorist who had deep ties to the Castro regime.
Yes, once again Papa Che has sided with unrepentant murderers.
He is redefining justice and mercy. No doubt about it.

How Pope Francis Helped An Unrepentant Terrorist Get A Presidential Pardon
by Maureen Mularkey
On January 13, Robert González Nieves, archbishop of San Juan, revealed Pope Francis’ role in Barack Obama’s pardon of terrorist mastermind Oscar Lopez-Rivera.

FALN thugs took credit for having blown it up “with reactionary corporate executives inside.”
