Release of 5 Cuban Agents(Spies) in U.S. Sought

Several Nobel laureates and leftist intellectuals called for the release of five Cuban agents awaiting a new trial in the United States in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales released Tuesday.
Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky and Rigoberta Menchu were among hundreds who signed the letter, which said "nothing justifies (the men's) incarceration" given a recent ruling to throw out their previous convictions.
Earlier this month, a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta nullified convictions and sentences from the men's trial in Miami, citing prejudicial publicity. Many Cuban immigrants opposed to President Fidel Castro and his communist government live in the Miami area.
"This arbitrary situation which is extremely painful for them and their families cannot be allowed to continue," said the letter, also signed by American personalities such as Alice Walker, Danny Glover and Harry Belafonte.
Three of the men were also convicted of espionage conspiracy for efforts to penetrate U.S. military bases, and one was additionally found guilty of murder conspiracy in the deaths of four Miami-based pilots whose small, private planes were shot down by a Cuban MiG in 1996........
cyouincourt007: two single engine unarmed cessna's from brothers to the rescue were shot down in cold blood.......why do Danny Glover and the rest defend those spies among us......those who murder the innocent they support.....but the country that allows Glover and the rest to spew their filth..they do not defend.........it's no secret....folks like Jack Nicholson and the rest go smoke cigars with Castro while he places spies in the pentagon and his people starve.....
