    OK really? How much time an money is spent on a case like this that all of us knows have zero chance of being won or paid for.

  • Nokomis

    Sherry basically would like to know what happened to her Dad. Some of the agencies possibly involved, for example CIA, aren’t known for their candor!

    • Bright

      While we can all likely sympathize with her need to have answers, in this article the focus is on her attempt to enforce a monetary judgement. Again, are we paying for this?

      • Anonymous

        Of course “we’re” not paying for this.
        Why do you even ask such a question?

    As someone whose own father’s life was possibly put at risk by this man, it’s hard for me to have too much sympathy for him. The United States was not at war with Cuba at the time, making him a war criminal under international law. While his daughter has no doubt suffered not knowing his fate — and for that I am truly sorry — she is hardly entitled to extract such a huge sum from the people of Cuba.

      How is it possible that he put your father’s life at risk?

        Mr. Sullivan (together with Alexander Rorke Jr., an apparent CIA agent masquerading as an NBC newsman who was the son-in-law of the racist owner of the Stork Club, ex-bootlegger and petty criminal Sherman Bilingsley) conducted an aerial bombing raid in April, 1963 against an oil refinery in Havana where my father was then living. Later that year, he was apparently involved in criminal activity over the Escambray Mountains in Cuba in support of American-sponsored mercenaries. That activity from the air may have included further bombing, the supplying of arms and other supplies and possibly even the dropping of biological agents calculated to kill off Cuba’s swine, an important source of protein in a nation suffering through serious nutritional privations deliberately induced by the United States. My father was at that time in the Escambray leading a portion of the Cuban military force that ultimately defeated and drove off those scum.

        • Nokomis

          Doesn’t this make your father also a war criminal?

            No

  • EKnuble

    Having the pleasure of knowing several Cubans in NYC and Miami I can tell everyone reading this that they, at least, consider people like Ms Sullivan’s father heroes.

    Underlying issue is the Geneva Convention and how it was
    being ignored by BOTH sides.
