Cuba’s terror-sponsoring dictatorship: When pro-Castro terrorists bombed the U.S. Capitol

Cuba’s communist Castro dictatorship has a decades-long history of supporting terrorism and harboring terrorists that continues to this day. A history and current reality the left and the media would rather you didn’t know about.

Via Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter:

Cuba returned to list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. Remembering when pro-Castro terrorists bombed the U.S. Capitol in 1983

We remember. Recovering some facts from the memory hole.

The State Department re-designating Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism (SSOT) yesterday rectified an error made in 2015. Havana continues to “repeatedly provide support for acts of international terrorism” and has never stopped granting international terrorists safe haven in Cuba.

Cuba continues to harbor dozens of wanted terrorists, among them the notorious cop-killer Joanne Chesimard. Havana provides a safe-haven for leaders of the Colombian terrorist group Ejército de Liberación Nacional (ELN) and maintains close ties with terror sponsor states North Korea, Iran, and Syria.

The State Department’s January 11, 2021 announcement highlights that “Cuba has refused Colombia’s requests to extradite ten ELN leaders living in Havana after the group claimed responsibility for the January 2019 bombing of a Bogota police academy that killed 22 people and injured more than 87 others.”

Havana continues to provide command, control, Cuban military and security agents, to violently prop up the illegitimate Maduro dictatorship in Venezuela, and has expanded its presence in other leftist Latin American countries including, but not limited to, Nicaragua and Bolivia.

The decision to remove Cuba from the SSOT list in 2015 was a politicized decision made in response to demands from the Castro regime as a pre-condition of re-establishing diplomatic relations later that same year. In the belief that the American people have a right to know what the Cuban Government already does, the Center for a Free Cuba has requested that the record of the 2009-2017 US-Cuba negotiations to reestablish diplomatic relations be declassified.

  1. The usual suspects are very selective in general, including what they choose to remember, but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten anything. If they can ignore what’s current, they can certainly ignore what’s past.
