More Orwellian 'newspeak' from the Bush administration

In an article published in the Internet, see below, the Voice of America labeled Luis Posada Carriles as an 'anti-Castro activist.' The hypocrisy of the Bush administration has no bounds. Black is white, and war is peace. They argued before an immigration judge that Posada Carriles is merely an "undocumented illegal alien."

Does the Bush administration think that people in the U.S. and the rest of the world are stupid?

The only label that should be given to that piece of scum is: TERRORIST.

US Considering Moving Anti-Castro Activist to Third Country

By VOA News

25 January 2006

U.S. immigration officials say they are considering moving Cuban exile Luis Posada Carriles to another country.

The U.S. office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement said this week it is moving forward to carry out Mr. Posada's removal from the United States. But it ruled out sending him to Cuba or Venezuela, because he might be tortured there.

Posada's lawyer told a federal court Tuesday his client, a naturalized Venezuelan citizen, should be released while awaiting a decision on whether he will be deported.

That decision is expected by April.

Venezuela and Cuba want the anti-Castro activist extradited to Venezuela, to stand trial for the bombing of a Cuban airliner in 1976. Cubans staged a huge anti-U.S. rally in Havana Tuesday, to coincide with Posada's court date.

The 77-year-old was arrested in the United States in May, 2005.
