Letter from a reader
Bush pardoned anti-Cuban terrorist
2 October 1999
To the editor:
We must not forget the pardon by President Bush of a terrorist, Orlando Bosch, who conspired in the bombing of a Cubana airliner in 1976, killing all passengers and crew.
Bosch, who had been serving a prison sentence for a bazooka attack on a Polish freighter in Miami harbor, was freed as the result of a campaign launched by Jeb Bush and his right-wing Cuban supporters in Florida. This event did not make the news, nor did it arouse the moral outrage of Congress and the right-wing organizations who today denounce the release of the Puerto Rican political prisoners.
