Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Was the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion an act of terrorism?

    Certainly, some would consider US actions in 1961 as terroristic in nature, Democracy Now has this:

    Also at stake in today's hearing is whether the failed 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba should be considered an act of U.S. terrorism. Judge Abbott asked lawyers in the case to prepare briefs on whether Posada provided material support for terrorist activities. He participated in the Bay of Pigs invasion as a CIA operative. Posada is also accused of orchestrating the 1976 bombing of a Cubana Airlines plane, killing 73 people including the entire Cuban Olympic fencing team.
    But of course, some would say that the US would never harbour or support terrorists. Sorry, that's just not true. The US has been, and most likely, will continue to be a "state sponsor of terrorism". Pictured above, Luis Posada and Osama bin Laden. The connection? Both have been supported by the US at some stage. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
