I got a real bit of nonsense from Senator Burr this past July. He sent a letter to me in response to my letter saying that Luis Posada Carriles should be extradited to Cuba or Venezuela because there is a lot of evidence suggesting that he was behind the bombing of a civilian airliner. Senator Burr does not agree with that idea, and this was his reasoning:
"The United State requires sufficient reassurance from countries receiving people extradited from the United States that those people will not be tortured."
I wrote back:
I suppose this is a joke, but I don't find it funny. The US has shipped hundreds of people places where they were tortured - often by Americans. This is shameful.I sent my response to the Asheville office. Heard nothing back.
