Dear President Bush:
On February 24, 1996 two American civilian airplanes belonging to Brothers to the Rescue (BTTR), were ambushed and downed by missiles fired from Castro’s MiGs, murdering their crews: three U.S. citizens and a Florida resident.
This premeditated attack took place in international airspace, twenty miles north of Cuba, while BTTR conducted a humanitarian search and rescue mission to save the lives of Cuban rafters seeking freedom.
The Clinton-Gore Administration refused to initiate criminal proceedings against Castro or his accomplices, despite the fact that this crime has been investigated and is well documented by U.S. authorities and by the United Nations (ICAO). A U.S. Civil Court in Florida has tried the case of the shoot down and has ruled against the Government of Cuba. Additionally, Castro himself has admitted his responsibility in authorizing the attack.
The undersigned respectfully request that you have the Justice Department follow “the Rule of Law”, indict Fidel Castro and his accomplices, and help bring closure to this human tragedy.
