The National Review Online ran a P2 (Jason and Yleem Poblete) piece today, “Call Cuba To Account: Obama should implement LIBERTAD as Congress intended“:
This week marks the 18th anniversary of the downing of two U.S. civilian planes by the Cuban military over international waters. On February 24, 1996, Cessnas flown by members of the organization Brothers to the Rescue were patrolling north of Havana for Cuban refugees, who risked life and limb at sea in makeshift craft in search of freedom. Cuban fighter pilots in Russian MiGs encircled the planes and attacked. The planes disintegrated. Killed were three Americans: Carlos Costa, Armando Alejandre Jr., and Mario de la Peña, along with U.S. resident Pablo Morales …
… [w]ith respect to the shooting down of Brothers to the Rescue, the president should at least declassify all records relating to the incident. These documents will afford the families of the victims an opportunity to seek justice in international tribunals. They will do what presidents have refused to do: face evil head-on and ensure that the United States is on the right side of history.

We encourage you to support the C.A.M.P. 4 Justice Foundation by signing the following letter to President Obama. The family members of the fallen urge the President not to exchange or release Cuban spies in U.S. federal prison who are connected to the murder of these three American citizens and one U.S. resident.
