“It’s bad enough when the world knows that we’re rendering suspected Islamic terrorists to countries that routinely use terror,” said one [U.S.] State Department official. “But here we have someone who we know is a terrorist, and it’s clear that we’re actively protecting him from facing justice. We have zero credibility.”
“The long and short of it is that we are harbouring a terrorist,” agreed Wayne Smith, who headed the U.S. Interest Section in Havana in the late 1970s and early 1980s. “This is really a total farce.”
