Project for a New American Century, the War on Terror, and the Iraq War
(and anti-Soviet hysteria for decades), Richard Perle aka "Prince of

Saudi Arabia to retaliate. I guess the only "conspiracy

Baker Botts, Sultan’s law firm, for
example, still boasts former
secretary of State James Baker as one of its senior partners.
Its recent alumni include Robert Jordan, the former personal lawyer for President Bush
who is now U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia.
An internal list of other law firms
retained in the case, reviewed by NEWSWEEK , reads like a veritable “who’s who” of the U.S. legal community.
Among those firms and their Saudi clients are: Wilmer, Cutler &

Cuban exile cohort of Posada, Felix Rodriguez (Bush ally, a former CIA

involvement in the interrogation and

Latchinian maintained that this was a CIA fund-raising operation.
According to authors Peter Dale Scott and Jonathan Marshall, he was a
"former business partner of Felix Rodriguez".
Eugene Hasenfus (sole survivor of a crash in Nicaragua, which exposed Iran-Contra) told reporters that he
worked for "Max Gomez" (an alias for Felix Rodriguez) and "Ramon
Medina" (an alias for Luis Posada Carriles) of the CIA. On 10 October
1986, Clair George, head of
CIA clandestine operations, testified before Congress that he did not
know of any direct connection between Hasenfus and Administration
officials. In Fall of 1992, George was convicted on two charges of false statements and perjury
before Congress; he was pardoned

bombings in Havana
during which eleven
people were injured and one Italian
businessman was killed
. Most recently he was imprisoned in
Panama for trying to assassinate Fidel Castro in December 2000 with 33 pounds of C-4 explosives
September 2004, he and three co-conspirators were suddenly pardoned
, and Posada went to Honduras
(where the US/CIA has
military allies and bases). Venezuela is now preparing to submit an
official extradition request to the United States for his return.
Luis Posada Carriles had a long relationship with the CIA. In
February 1961, he joined the CIA's
Brigade 2506 to invade Cuba, although the ship to which he was
assigned never landed at the Bay of Pigs. While in the U.S. military
between 1963 and 1965 the CIA recruited him and trained him in demolitions; he subsequently became
a trainer of other paramilitary exile forces in the mid 1960s. CIA
documents posted below reveal that he was terminated as an asset in
July 1967, but then reinstated four months later and apparently
remained an asset until 1974. The documents also show that he remained in contact with the Agency until
June 1976, only three months
before the plane bombing.
During the time that Posada was on the CIA payroll in the mid-1960s,
he participated in a number of plots that involved sabotage and explosives. The
FBI transmits information in 1965 obtained from the CIA's Mexico
station titled "Intention of Cuban Representation in Exile (RECE) to
Blow up a Cuban or Soviet Vessel in Veracruz, Mexico." FBI links
Posada to a major plot to overthrow
the government of Guatemala. U.S. Customs agents force Posada
and other co-conspirators to turn over a cache of weapons that are
listed in this document. The weapons include napalm, 80 pounds of C-4
explosives, and 28 pounds of C-3 explosives.
FBI reporting recorded some of Posada's earliest activities, including
his financial ties to Jorge Mas Canosa, who would later become head of
the powerful anti-Castro lobby, the Cuban American National Foundation.
The CIA was beginning to have some "concerns" about him in 1972, based
on reports that he had taken CIA explosives equipment to Venezuela, and
that he had ties to a Miami mafia
figure named Lefty Rosenthal.
