- El Paso Diary
The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles.

That’s because despite political and U.S. press claims to the contrary, the killing has done nothing to weaken al Qaeda. In fact, according to one counter-terrorism insider, al Qaeda is stronger today than it was 10 years ago, before the strikes of 9/11.
150 years ago, shells were lobbed into Fort Sumpter, South Carolina, and the Civil War began. In 4 years, over 600,000 combatants were killed, more than in Vietnams long, 9-year war. Isn’t it interesting that the war fought to preserve slavery was fought in the nation called “land of the free?” From 1861 to 1865
