Cuba & State Sponsored Terrorism

Is Cuba a Designated State Sponsor of Terror? The State Department of the United States has designated Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. Cuba received this designation from the United States for repeatedly providing support for acts of international terrorism by granting safe harbor to terrorists. Designating Cuba as a state-sponsor of terrorism is meant to hold Cuba’s government accountable, as well as to send a clear message. That message is that Cuba must end its support for international terrorism and subversion of U.S. justice.  

For many decades Cuban residents have gone hungry and homeless while the Cuban government provided food, housing, and medical care for hijackers, bombmakers, and murderers. The National Liberation Army has been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the United States, yet this organization traveled to Havana to conduct talks with the Colombian government. Cuba then refused Colombia’s requests to extradite ten members of the National Liberation Army living in Havana—even after the group claimed responsibility for bombing a Bogota police academy in 2019.

Cuba continues to harbor U.S. fugitives from justice who have either been convicted of political violence charges or are wanted for similar charges. As an example, Cuba refused to return a terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, Joanne Chesimard. Chesimard executed a NJ State Trooper in 1973. Another fugitive, Ishmael LaBeet, was convicted of the deaths of eight people in 1972, and Charles Lee Hill was charged with killing a NM state policeman in 1971. All of these U.S. fugitives from justice are being protected by Cuban officials.

Cuba was off the list of State-Sponsored Terrorism after vowing to stop supporting terrorism, however, that commitment was broken, and their place on the list was reinstated. The U.S. believes the Cuban regime continues to engage in a range of malignant behaviors. This includes the fact that the Cuban intelligence infiltrated Venezuela’s security and military forces assisting Nicholas Maduro to maintain his stranglehold over his people. Cuba has also supported FARC dissidents.

Cuba’s designation of State-Sponsored Terrorism sanctions and penalizes countries and persons that engage in certain trade with Cuba, bans defense sales and exports, restricts U.S. foreign   assistance, and imposes certain controls on the export of dual-use items.
