Miami travel agency
attack: a few blurry photos after a six-week
SIX weeks after a travel agency
specializing in travel to Cuba, Airline Brokers, was
destroyed by a terrorist attack, without the
slightest indication that a serious investigation
was underway, the FBI released to the press several
blurry photos, taken by a nearby security camera, of
a suspicious vehicle passing the building.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) indicated that the "vehicle of interest"
pictured was a station wagon or a hatchback, but did
not further explain their hypothesis as to why the
vehicle was passing the location as the fired raged
or if the car belonged to the terrorist arsonists.
While U.S. intelligence claims to be
able to photograph a license plate from satellites
in orbit, the FBI photos are of such poor quality
that one can only assume they are but a smokescreen,
meant to give the appearance that the crime is
actually being investigated.
Vivian Mannerud, owner of Airline
Brokers, has not lost hope that the perpetuators
will eventually be identified. She has even
suggested that the terrorists turn themselves in,
before they are arrested.

agency’s offices at 815 Ponce de Leon Boulevard, in
Coral Gables, occurred on April 27.
In a brief statement, the FBI asked
for the community’s help in identifying the "vehicle
of interest" but offered no other details about the
progress of the investigation.
The car appeared around 3:30 am,
driving along one of the side streets close to the
Authorities are asking any one with
information about the case to call the telephone
numbers of the FBI; the Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms Bureau; the Coral Gables Fire Department or
the Florida Bureau of Fire and Arson
With so many informants,
collaborators, agents, gossips and good cameras
available to the FBI, the Miami police and the CIA,
it is hard to believe that no suspects have been
detained or questioned.
Over the last 50 years,
investigators of all kinds who have worked in Miami
have maintained good relations with the anti-Cuban
terrorist mafia, which is considered an integral
part of the U.S. government’s apparatus to carry out
aggression against Cuba and intervene in progressive
countries in Latin America.
