Saul Landau on U.S.-Aided Anti-Castro Militants and the Cuban Five
June 14, 2012 · By Saul Landau
Journalist, filmmaker, author, professor, and IPSer Saul Landau joined Democracy Now to discuss his new film "Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up," about U.S. support for violent anti-Castro militants.
Landau discussed the history of the Cuban Five and U.S. support for a group of anti-Castro militants who have been behind the bombing of airplanes, the blowing up of hotels and assassinations. Today they are allowed to live freely in the United States. "What did Cuba do to us?," Landau asks. "Well, the answer, I think, is that they were disobedient, in our hemisphere. And they did not ask permission to take away property. They took it away. They nationalized property. And the United States ... has never forgiven them."
