For half a century, small groups of Cuban exiles have waged a terrorist campaign against Cuba’s revolutionary government, with support from the U.S. government.
In the 1990s, Florida-based exiles began bombing tourist sites, at that time the backbone of Cuba’s economy. An Italian tourist died in one of the bomb attacks. Since the FBI did not arrest the bombers in Miami, Havana sent agents there to infiltrate and report on the violent groups. Instead of stopping the perpetrators of these terrorist acts, the FBI arrested the five Cuban agents. They were tried in Miami and given draconian sentences despite a dramatic absence of evidence against them.
“Will The Real Terrorist Please Stand Up?‟ documents this violent history involving the CIA, and the 5 Cubans serving long sentences in U.S. prisons. The film features an interview with Gerardo Hernandez, one of the Cuban Five who is currently serving life imprisonment in Victorville Maximum Security Prison for “conspiracy to commit espionage.” Landau also interviews Luis Posada Carriles, Orlando Bosch, and others who have acknowledged perpetrating acts of terrorism in Cuba as “freedom fighters.” Surprise appearances in the film include Fidel Castro and Danny Glover.
