Posada named "key link"

November 16, 1997

In a report  published in the Miami Herald on November 16, 1997, the newspaper—citing “dozens of interviews with security officials, friends of the bombers, Cuban exiles and others in El Salvador, Miami, Guatemala and Honduras”—traced the Havana hotel attacks to a “ring of Salvadoran car thieves and armed robbers directed and financed by Cuban exiles in El Salvador and Miami… Luis Posada Carriles,” the story claimed, “was the key link between El Salvador and the South Florida exiles, who raised $15,000 for the operation.”
