Speaking of hypocrisy... the Bush family's ties to terrorism.

"One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter" goes the expression. Robert Parry illustrates that with the story of an anti-Castro Cuban: Showing that old Cold War habits die hard, the Bush administration is tolerating the presence of right-wing Cuban terrorist Luis Posada in the United States. Though Posada crossed the Mexican border illegally and is now hiding in the Miami area, neither President George W. Bush nor Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has ordered a manhunt. That may seem to contradict the "moral clarity" of the War on Terror, but actually makes sense because Posada has long been the Bush family's favorite terrorist. Posada is wanted for bombing an airliner, snuffing out 73 innocent lives If Posada ever told his full story, he might shed unwelcome light on how much the senior George Bush knew about the terrorist attacks in 1976 and the Iran-Contra operation a decade later, where Posada also showed up. Of course, since Bush also can't find Osama, maybe it's no surprise he can't find Posada.
Hell, Charles, given their track record, I'm shocked that the Bushistas haven't yet nominated Orlando Bosch for any posts. I figure that it must be some oversight on their part.
