Venezuela Urges the US Congress to Reject Terrorism

The Venezuelan National Assembly urged the United States Congress to ratify its rejection to terrorism and its decision to fight it handing out the terrorist of Cuban origin, Luis Posada Carriles.
The Venezuelan press is circulating a document issued by the Venezuelan Supreme Court demanding the extradition of Posada Carriles, who had requested political asylum in the US territory.
Venezuela reiterated its condemnation to the decision of ex Panamanian President Mireya Moscoso to protect the terrorist with a presidential pardon, violating the extradition agreements signed between Panama and Venezuela.
Caracas also requested Washington to report about the situation of Posada Carriles in its territory and immediately carries out its extradition.
The government of President Hugo Chavez encourages -at the same time- the Organization of American States (OAS), the United Nations and the International Community to join efforts to achieve the arrest and extradite of one of the most dangerous terrorists known in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Venezuelan congress presented evidences to request the extradition of Posada Carriles such as ordering the bombing of a Cuban civilian airliner that killed all 73 passengers and organizing a bombing campaign that targeted tourist hotels in Cuba in which Fabio di Celmo, a visitor from Italy, was killed in one of the explosions.

In other words: he may be a terrorist, but he's our terrorist.
Wether anyone would disagree, a two-shot suicide may loop up on the horizon.
