Colonel Wilkerson Censures US Foreign Policy
Former Powell aid Lawrence Wilkerson
The protection afforded by the US government to confessed Cuban-American terrorists, while it includes Cuba on a list of terrorist states, exemplifies Washington's amateurish foreign policy, admitted retired army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff of Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002 to 2005.
Wilkerson gave an exclusive interview to Prensa Latina, in which he spoke on many issues, including his opinion on the connection between the paid Central American terrorists captured in Cuba and Venezuela and Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, who enjoy the protection of the US government.
New evidence is coming to light concerning the criminal aggressions carried out against Cuba by mercenaries of Central American origin in the 1990s, financed and organized by terrorists and anti-Cuban groups that receive protection in the United States.
In particular, the arrest last July of Salvadoran citizen Francisco Chávez Abarca in the Venezuelan airport of Maiquetía, and his subsequent transfer to Havana in accordance with a red alert from INTERPOL, provide the evidence of a plot that sought to sow chaos and that caused the death of Italian tourist Fabio Di Celmo in 1997.
