Meanwhile, back in the real war on terror...

Attorney Leonard Weinglass and Gloria La Riva, National Coordinator of the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five, discuss (13:44 mp3 file) the latest developments in the case, along with the potential freeing of notorious terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, with Flashpoint's Dennis Bernstein.

For a video summary of the deadly career of Luis Posada Carriles, featuring ABC News coverage of the case, interviews with family members of those killed by Posada, and more, I highly recommend these short (6:10) videos:

And finally, here's (1:11 mp3 file) how every liberal's favorite whipping boy, Mumia Abu-Jamal, summarized the case of the Cuban Five in just over one minute. If any of those people every actually went to a demonstration, and paid attention, they'd know that 9 times out of 10, when Mumia's name comes up on the platform, it's because he's delivering a speech (on tape from prison, obviously) about the issue in question, not talking about his own case. That's just an aside to rant about one of my pet peeves -- ridiculous straw man arguments about what's wrong with demonstrations.
