Eli kiteytettynä, USA on pitänyt nyt vankina viittä kuubalaista 13 vuotta vailla syytteitä/todisteita.
Mielestäni tästä ja USA:n erityisoikeudesta olla kusipäävaltio ilman YK:n asiaan puuttumista, eli USA:n/Israelin juridisesta suveneriteetista harrastaa ihmisoikeusrikkomuksia eli terrorismia muiden valtioiden kansalaisia kohtaan ilman rikossyytettä, olisi mielenkiintoisempaa keskustella kuin siitä että tuhansia tappanut terrori-isku toimii tekosyynä satojen tuhansien siviilien murhaamiseen.
Ja sitten KathmandouTiger voi taas kertoa kuinka ihana maa se Israel on.
Cuban Five: 13 Years of Unjust Incarceration

September 12th marks 13 years of the unjust imprisonment of five Cuban antiterrorist fighters in the United States, who were monitoring anti-Cuban terrorist groups based in Miami. They were detained on September 12, 1998 and confined in punishment cells for 17 months before their case went to trial.
Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez were detained by U.S. authorities on September 12, 1998 and confined in punishment cells for 17 months before their case went to trial.
Gerardo, Ramon and Antonio were accused of spying against the United States, with the added charge of conspiracy to commit espionage, even they were not found to possess any classified documents.
The case of the Five, as they are universally known, was tried in Miami, which a federal appeal court described it as a "perfect storm" of prejudice.
The trial lasted over six months, the longest ever in the United States as of that date, and included testimony from three retired army generals who agreed that there was no evidence of espionage.
Seven months after the initial charges, Gerardo Hernandez was accused of the additional charge of conspiracy to commit murder, as a result of a public campaign to avenge a 1996 Cuban Air Force shootdown of two airplanes piloted by members of an extremist group.
