Country Reports on Terrorism 2008

The State Department just released the latest Country Reports on Terrorism. For Latin America there is nothing terribly exciting. Cuba remains on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, but I did a double take as I read the fairly short analysis about why it is on the list.

--"Cuba no longer actively supports armed struggle in Latin America and other parts of the world"

--"former Cuban President Fidel Castro called on the FARC to release the hostages they were holding without preconditions. He has also condemned the FARC's mistreatment of captives and of their abduction of civilian politicians who had no role in the armed conflict."

--"The United States has no evidence of terrorist-related money laundering or terrorist financing activities in Cuba"

--"In keeping with its public declaration, the government has not provided safe haven to any new U.S. fugitives wanted for terrorism since 2006"
