US Media Claim Cuba Could Extradite Assata Shakur, Despite All Evidence to the Contrary

Published 6 June 2016, TeleSUR English

Assata Shakur, the first woman to be put on the FBI’s most wanted terrorist list, is falsely claimed to be included in a prisoner swap program between the U.S. and Cuba.

News outlets in the United States have published speculative reports over the past couple of days suggesting Cuba is willing to exchange Assata Shakur in a prison swap deal with the U.S.

Assata Shakur, formerly called Joanne Chesimard, is a Queens-born activist who belonged to the Black Liberation Army.

She escaped prison two years after being convicted of the alleged murder of state trooper Werner Foerster in 1977 during a gunfight – a crime she has always denied.

In the mid-1980s, then Cuban President Fidel Castro granted her asylum on the island.

Shortly after Washington announced its normalization of relations with Cuba, state authorities in New Jersey expressed their hope that Havana would extradite the former Black Panther to U.S. soil. 

“We view any changes in relations with Cuba as an opportunity to bring her back to the United States to finish her sentence for the murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973,” said Col. Rick Fuentes, head of the state’s largest law enforcement agency.

However, the Cuban government has repeatedly refused to extradite the aunt of Tupac Shakur, angering U.S. conservatives.

    The Castro dynasty does not want her because she snitched them out to make a deal. Montes will be 66 years old when she gets out and can move to Cuba herself.

  2. It was during the CLINTON “WHITE HOUSE” ADMINISTRATION the biggest and most—continuous—immensely damaging security breach, into U.S. Intelligence, produced an egregiously and TOTALLY ERRONEOUS foreign policy by the United States government toward CUBA. Such security breach was perpetrated at the behest of a Cuban spy who was a Puerto Rican-born U.S. Intelligence Officer charged with guiding the policy from the United States toward Cuba. Enter Ana Belen Montes. This whole situation represents a huge “F” mark for the CLINTON oval office legacy, such Clinton legacy now pursued under the name of Hillary Clinton, target of an FBI investigation and who once again, now seeks the President´s office in White House. It now seems—almost—ironically cynical and conveniently fitting, the Obama White House administration has paved the way for the CLINTONS to eliminate any potential fallout from the fact, such SPECIFIC tarnished past and highly damaging security breach was—while in the face of present U.S. and Cuba restored diplomatic relations—an erroneous and old foreign policy toward Cuba—and more precisely, now, that Cuba has been considered to be no longer a risk factor, from an intelligence standpoint, to United States National Security. Such erroneous past—from a foreign relations experience and poor performance standpoint—represents one less key item to have to defend by the CLINTONS during the present 2016 Presidential Campaign, on the heels of the Benghazi and CLINTON State Department email dissemination controversy looming in the background. It would seem the Ana Belén Montes case vis-à-vis the foreign policy questionably confronted by Hillary Clinton would be dwarfed by the huge security breach Cuba represented to the United States during the Clinton WHITE HOUSE administration. Notwithstanding, NO ONE has connected these dots, here. And while it has not been questioned of her, nevertheless, it would be highly appropriate for an informed journalist to ask Ms. CLINTON: 1.) Ms. Clinton, isn´t it true it was during your husband´s administration the biggest foreign policy intelligence security breach blunder was committed when the Clinton White House formulated the past erroneous foreign policy of the United States toward Cuba, which stated Cuba no longer represented a risk factor to U.S. National Security when it actually was in the name of Ana Belén Montes and her sheer existence? Do you, Ms. CLINTON, still believe that is no longer true today, meaning Cuba does not pose any threat—whatsoever—to U.S. intelligence and or this nation´s national security? Would you, Ms. Clinton, like to go on the record on this issue please? They may not prove Benghazi, they may not prove the State Department´s email scandal, but it has been proven the CLINTON white House messed up big when it formulated a policy that Cuba no longer represented a risk factor to U.S. Intelligence or the United States National Security, when the very existence of Ana Belén Montes proved otherwise. This would serve to not only question Ms. CLINTON´s experience and worthiness into these types of matters, but it would serve to revisit Cuba´s worthiness as a so called non risk factor presently. Although a slew of Cuban spies are all over the U.S. doing “their thing”. The whole issue is laughable from a professional administrative standpoint, and sad and unfortunate from a U.S. intelligence and United States National Security standpoint. The CLINTON WHITE HOUSE, also, did nothing to renew military training maneuvers in Vieques as the CLINTON´S thought this would impact the Puerto Rican vote in New York, which at that time Hillary Clinton needed to become a U.S. Senator and thereafter get back into the race for the White House. Such was written in the same self-funded ($15,000) newspaper article, which a private citizen had published to bring this truth out as the CLINTON WHITE HOUSE made it official policy that Cuba did not represent a risk factor to U.S. Intelligence or to United States National Security. Such a blunder proven wrong by the very existence of Ana Belén Montes, the U.S. Intelligence Officer who was actually a Cuban Spy. I look forward to seeing this issue examined during the upcoming Presidentail campaign.
