As we have said many times before, we do not envy the job of “Cuba Experts” who have to get up everyday and with a straight face defend the atrocities and crimes of Cuba’s Castro dictatorship. We can only imagine what it takes to sit in front of a camera or microphone knowing full well the Castro dictatorship harbors terrorists and still claim Cuba is not a State Sponsor of Terror.
Baghdad Bob has nothing on these guys.
Cuban Documentary Extols ETA Terrorists
The 2012 U.S. State Department’s Country Reports on Terrorism had (strangely) stated that:
“Reports in 2012 suggested that the Cuban government was trying to distance itself from Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA) members living on the island by employing tactics such as not providing services including travel documents to some of them.”
Not sure where they got that from, but State may want to reconsider that statement.
According to Diario de Cuba, a new Cuban documentary called “Los Deportados,” extols three ETA terrorists residing in Cuba.
The director has said the goal of the film is to “bring Cuban citizens closer to the reality of these people.”
One of the terrorists, José Miguel Arrugaeta, who was originally captured in France, but escaped and traveled clandestinely through various countries to make his way to Cuba, stated:
“Coming to Cuba gave us a certain sense of security. We knew that the Cuban government was serious. I had the feeling of having arrived in a safe place.“
Arrugaeta is wanted in the kidnapping and murder of a Spanish police official.
Moreover, in 2010, a Spanish judged issued an international court order against Arrugueta and members of Colombia’s FARC narco-terrorist group in a plot to murder Colombian government officials.
The other two ETA terrorists featured in the Cuban documentary were José Ángel Urtiaga Martínez and Jesús Abrisketa.
