Posada: "Recognized Anti-Castro Activist"

Over on the Radio Mambi website (part of the larger Univision website), there's a poll on Luis Posada Carriles. It asks:

"Do you support freedom for Luis Posada Carriles, recognized anti-Castro activist?"

No kidding. See the screen shot here. As far as I know, and according to the latest reports, Luis Posada Carriles is already free. He's even appeared publicly in some places here in Miami recently. Sure, the US Justice Department has appealed the latest ruling that freed him, but that was a while ago and Posada is not behind bars now or in any form of detention (as far as I know).

So what's up with the poll? (A response to the Code Pink demonstrations perhaps?)

And, if anyone knows about the declassified government documents on Posada Carriles, and his interviews with Ann Louise Bardach, then one should easily recognize that Posada is more than just an "activist."

Not surprisingly, the results of the Radio Mambi poll are 80% in favor of "freedom" for Luis Posada Carriles. But, the site does not reveal how many votes have been counted.
