Venezuelan Reporter Denounces Barbados Crime Impunity

Havana, Oct 3. -Impunity is still part of the terrorist sabotage against a Cuban civil airplane that killed 73 people on October 6, 1976 in Barbados, Venezuelan journalist Alicia Herrera said.Herrera told Prensa Latina that the 35 years of that "cruel and horrific event" does not stop the chain of pain and the demand of the Cuban people, especially from the victims relatives, to achieve justice.

Herrera recalled with indignation how the perpetrators of that disastrous action, Hernan Ricardo and Freddy Lugo, confessed to her their participation in the attack and their links to the masterminds, Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch.

The criminals affirmation is included in the book "Pusimos la bomba Y que?" (We Planted the Bomb, And So What?), a Herrera accusation book published for a first time in 1981, and whose 2005 third edition includes declassified documents that ratifies the terrorists guilty.

Among those texts, states the writer, is one aimed to U.S. Secretary of State at that time Henry Kissinger, including a Bosch's compromising remark during a dinner.

The criminal's words were "Now that our organization has fared well from Letelier's work (referring to the murder of the Chilean foreign minister during the government of President Salvador Allende on September 21, 1976) we will try to do some other things," Herrera said.

According to that document, an informant from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was overheard when Posada Carriles said in September 1976, "we are going to hit a Cuban airplane."

Those and other evidences confirm Washington's complicity with the terrorists, a link that continue at present, Herrera also said referring to statements revealed in 2007 by Peter Kornbluh, senior analyst at the U.S. National Security Archive. (Prensa Latina)
