message from Cele Castillo, May 17, 2005
For over a century, our government has made sure that we are never to
be told the truth about anything that we have done to other people in
third world countries, especially in Latin America. With the creation
of the School of the Americas, a breeding ground for assassins, and
the death squads, we have become the greatest human rights violators
in the world.
have become the most hated country in the world, not because we practice
democracy or value our freedom. We are hated because our government
denies these basic principles to these people. The hate has come back
to haunt us in the form of terrorism, AND as they say, once again, "the
chickens have come home to roost with our own home grown American made
terrorist, Luis Posada Carriles.
I was posted in Central America, as a DEA agent, I still remember seeing
Luis Posada and Felix Rodriguez, another American terrorist, at Illopango
airport base in El Salvador. Joining them was a CIA asset Venezuelan
advisor Victor Rivera. They had become part of what was known as a CIA
apparatus that did not have to answer to no one. They were involved
from drug trafficking, kidnapping, and the training of the death squads.
It was also at the height of the Iran-Contra investigation where I had
documented these atrocities to my government. I could not understand
how our government had assisted in having Posada escaped from a Venezuela
prison, and then placing him at Illopango airport as a CIA asset under
the new name of Ramon Medina. He was now working hand in hand with then
U. S. Lt. Col. Oliver North. When I question Posada's presents at Illopango,
I was once again told that it was a covert operation being run by the
White House. I started to learn real fast that just about every time
I question illegal events, I was told that it was "a covert operation
being run by the White House". And as we found out later, my allegations
became facts, especially with President Bush Sr. 1990 pardoning of another
American made terrorist and partners in crime with Posada, Orlando Bosch.
Now you have a clear observation of why we had 9/11 and possibly more
to come. We have exported death and violence to the four corners of
the Earth with individuals like Posada and Bosch.
Posada admitted to a New York Times reporter, that he organized a wave
of bombings in Cuba in 1997 that killed an Italian tourist and injured
others. However, he is best know as the prime suspect in the bombing
of a Cuban Airlines flight in Barbados in October 1976. All 73 crewmembers
and passengers including teenaged members of Cuba's national fencing
team were killed.
In 2002, he was convicted of conspiracy to assassinate Fidel Castro
in Panama. Once again, with an allied of the United State, he was pardon.
Our credibility has been eroded these past few weeks since Posada arrival
into our U. S. soil, with a bogus American passport. According to Posada's
attorney, he has file for an asylum claim. This should be a free ticket
to any other immigrant that is applying for asylum. If an American made
terrorist can get asylum, then it should be easy for an immigrant who
is honest and hard working individual to get asylum.
The FBI and the CIA has just release their Top Secret memos, of course
they are now declassified, on Posada's involvement with terrorist acts
Other American made terrorists are Mario Alarcon - Sandoval godfather
of the death squads in Central America, Felix Rodriguez, and a Cuban
exile who murdered Che Guevara, Major Roberto D'Aubuisson who led the
death squads in El Salvador. They all had American's blessing in assassinations.
This will affirm that the U. S. government is considers itself to be
the vehicles of higher morality and truth and has yet, continue to operate
in violation of law.
thought I'm known as a tranquil individual at this stage of my life,
I have nothing but contempt and anger for a country that has a double
standard of terrorism. Where is the Border Patrol, Immigration, or Homeland
Security when you need them? Posada enter this country illegally, and
most devastating, has admitted to bombing where civilians were killed.
The FBI claims that they don't have an arrest warrant for him, as the
reason they are not looking for him. Wait, just off the wire, Homeland
Security has just picked up Posada. Will he be extradited to Venezuela?
I don't think so. He will probably be given a couple of million dollars,
and will live in a secluded island for the remainder of his golden years.
What reward to be an assassin for the United States government.
world has become a very dangerous place to live, not just because of
the evil people that control it, but also because of the individuals
who do absolutely nothing to make it a better place to live.
years, I have advocated that this country has become the worst human
rights violator, and Posada and his Cuban criminals are proof that we
are who we are. Let's not forget our human rights violations in Iraq,
and just recently in Colombia, the assassination of Colombian Peace
Community of San Jose de Apartado, Luis Eduardo Guerra. I've witness,
time and time again, as an American Diplomat in Latin America, this
atrocities that our government has committed. My biggest enemy was not
the drug cartels but the CIA and the criminals they hired. It is because
of that, that I have now remained capable of feeling deeply in my blood
when an injustice is being committed.
