Carriles is a Venezuelan national who escaped from custody there more then 20 years ago. The US has, thus far, has refused to extradite Carriles on the justification that he might be turned over to Cuba, the nation he committed his crime in. Read more here.
In other "Freedom is on the March" news, Iraq's new government is now much closer to Iran(here and here), The US has backed off predictions it would be able to draw down troops this year, Sunni groups have united as several of their number have been recently murdered and massive street protests continue to the US occupation. The US is worried about backlash over the pictures of Saddam in his whitey-tighty's and Australia has become the latest nation to join the coalition of "We're outta here!". All this as Afghanistan is boiling over amid a new report of US prisoner abuse and the Koran abuse story. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
