A question for Miami

In Salon: The coddled "terrorists" of South Florida. There will be lots of debate on this one.

From the Salon report,
In Greater Miami, home to the majority of the nation's 1.5 million Cuban-Americans, the presence of what could credibly be described as a terrorist training camp has become an accepted norm during the half-century of the anti-Castro Cuban diaspora. Alpha 66 and numerous other paramilitary groups -- Comandos F4, Brigade 2506, Accion Cubana -- are so common they've taken on the benign patina of Rotary Clubs with weapons.

The report was written by Miami writers Tristram Korten and Kirk Nielsen, with research help supplied by the Puffin Foundation Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute.
Kicker quote: "This is Hezbollah in Florida".

No sign of any reaction on some of the Miami blogs (Babalu was busy insulting women. Where's Stuck when you need it?) but lots of comments on the Salon story.

  • Hey, liz...glad to see someone from Miami wrote something about this today. Too bad it had to come via North Carolina.

    Best be careful, though. If there's anything these misogynistic, boorish Neanderthal hardliners hate more than Fidel Castro it's American women.

    No doubt they'll probably share a few laughs about it as they sit in their backyards this weekend and scratch and pass gas and wipe Cheeto stains off their Miami Mafia shirts while they wait for their wives to bring them their next Bud.

    First class, they are.
