La Loba Feroz

That is the description the Cuban regime has for their nemesis Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. They simply fear her. If I were a card-carrying member of this gang of thugs I would fear her too. You would be hard pressed to find a more vocal opponent of the Cuban dictatorship or a more tenacious warrior for freedom and justice in Cuba in the congressional halls of this country. The oligarchic tyranny’s fears are well founded as we see that Ileana has wasted no time in doing what we have been waiting 49 years to be done.

Charges sought against Castro for deaths of four rescue workers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON— A Florida congresswoman asked the Justice Department yesterday to bring charges against resigning Cuban leader Fidel Castro for the deaths of four U.S. rescue workers who were killed while looking for Cuban migrants stranded at sea.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., said earlier attempts to prosecute Castro in the 1996 downing of a humanitarian flight off the Cuban coast might not have been successful because of his role as head of state.
With Castro’s announced plan to resign, Ros-Lehtinen said, “There should no longer be any diplomatic impediments to bringing Fidel Castro to justice” for a Cuban fighter jet attack on the private aircraft on a mission for Brothers to the Rescue.
The congresswoman’s suggestions were outlined in a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey.
Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr said the letter was being reviewed and declined to comment further.

Justice may be slow, but it will get here.

  1. The Justice Department won’t go there. They’ll just sit on it till Castro dies. Same for the Spanish grandstanding Judge Garzon, who went after Pinochet, but will find “sufficient cause” to pass on Castro.

  2. i’ll believe it when i see it.
    this world is one giant pile of morally bankrupt bananaheads. ain’t no such thing as justice anymore.
    my bet is – fidel and raul will die free men, in their cozy little beds.

  3. I understand the frustration you all feel–I feel it as well. Nevertheless, the high improbability that justice will ever be carried out on the members of this murderous regime should not stop us from seeking that justice.
    At a minimum, the memory of the countless innocents that have perished because of these murderers deserves to be honored with our tireless quest to obtain justice. The world may disagree with us and judges may throw the cases out of court, but we have an obligation to those whose voice and lives have been extinguished to advocate for justice.
    I know it seems we are tilting at windmills, but we are not doing this for the outcome–we are doing this because it is the right thing to do.

  4. Whether it ever happens or not is not important to me. It is important that we are able to stand up even after all of these years. Someone has to try. Ileana is also someone we can be proud of.

  5. Totally agree with Alberto. It’s some sort of moral obligation to try and put our voices to serve those who were silenced by the tyranny. At least, we’ve to give it a try. Que no quede por nosotros… hay que intentar que la justicia haga su papel.

  6. We have to try even if we don’t succeed.
    Future generations will know of our efforts to seek justice, and they will also know of those that stonewalled us.

  7. Well said, Alberto and that applies not just to suing for justice, but to the work of all those, in whatever capacity, are working for the rights and freedom of the Cuban people.

  8. If he’s dead he’s dead–we won’t be able to do anything about that. But, he did not kill all those innocent people by himself; there are plenty of guilty thugs who helped him.
