Cuba Harboring Terrorists, Cop Killers

Ninety or more criminal expatriates from the U.S. are officially harbored by Cuba, including terrorists and cop killers. The Cuban government has allowed one of the more notorious killers to roam free to this day. As Wikipedia sites:

...Joanne Deborah Byron Chesimard is an African-American activist who was a member of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army. In 1977 she was convicted of several felonies in relation to the 1973 slayings of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster and fellow activist Zayd Malik Shakur.

She escaped from prison in 1979 and has been living in Cuba with political asylum since 1984. Since May 2, 2005, she has been classified as a "domestic terrorist" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which has offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture.
Cuba should immediately return all ninety of these killers and thieves as a precondition for the embargo to be withdrawn.
