Ye olde double standard

Barack Obama on a bombing in Egypt yesterday which took the lives of 21 people:
"The perpetrators of this attack were clearly targeting Christian worshipers, and have no respect for human life and dignity. They must be brought to justice for this barbaric and heinous act."
Barack Obama on Luis Posada Carriles, the terrorist responsible for the deaths of 73 people in the bombing of a Cuban airliner in 1976, and an Italian tourist during a string of hotel bombings in Havana in 1997:
" "
Posada Carriles has been residing in the Miami since he entered the United States illegally in 2005, more than 5 1/2 years ago. Venezuela formally requested his extradition on June 15, 2005, a request which the United States Government, first under George Bush, and now under Barack Obama, has continued to ignore. Apparently having no respect for Cuban life and dignity doesn't qualify as a "barbaric and heinous act" in Obama's eyes.

On Jan. 10, Posada finally goes on trial in El Paso...for perjury. Demonstrations that day (and the day before) will greet him, and send a message to Obama - "Justice for the victims of anti-Cuba terrorism! Extradite Posada! Free the Cuban Five!"
