"Cuba and the United States have quite a curious--in fact, unique--status in international relations. There is no similar case of such a sustained assault by one power against another […] for more than 40 years of terror and economic warfare". Noam Chomsky.
"Their imprisonment (of the Cuban Five) is one of the biggest legal scandals of the beginning of the XXI Century". Ignacio Ramonet.
"Espionage is the search for secret data or information of a government. There was no espionage in this case [against the Cuban 5] unless the United States considers these terrorist groups a part of its government. If this were the case, the accusation would be right to a certain extent but they should then lift their cloak of hypocrisy and recognize it. The truth is that, for the US administration, these terrorist groups are part of the system like the Education Department, the Health Department or any other. After all, they treat them with a lot of deference. They have enjoyed so much support from the Federal Government that they publicly acknowledge them as if they were a part of the American system." Ricardo Alarcon
"If the Cubans—with a much longer history of serious terrorist attacks against them by well known perpetrators—take the most reasonable steps to protect themselves from further attacks, they find that Washington has forbidden them from taking part in the War Against Terrorism." William Blum.
"With the conquest of Cuba, the way was open for the United States to do as it wanted in the Caribbean". Howard Zinn.
"Castro is still a bone which stuck in American throats. He had defied and mocked the world's only superpower, and would not be forgiven." Piero Gleijeses.
"The Five were not prosecuted because they violated American law, but because their work exposed those who were. By infiltrating the terror network that is allowed to exist in Florida they demonstrated the hypocrisy of America's claimed opposition to terrorism." Leonard Weinglass.
"The USA democracy has committed and continues to commit acts flagrantly against all standards of the practices that give men and women the right to claim themselves the highest form of life". Nadine Gordimer.
