About “Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up” by Saul Landau

Will the real terrorist please stand up”  chronicles half a century of hostile US-Cuba relations.  By telling the story of the case of the Cuban five, intelligence agents sent to penetrate Cuban exile terrorist groups in Miami and now serving long prison sentences, the film highlights decades of assassinations and sabotage at first backed by Washington and then ignored by the very government that launched a “war against terrorism.” In the film, viewers see leading terrorists, now in their 80s, recounting their deeds, and Cuban state security officials explaining why they infiltrated agents into violent Miami exile groups.

The film, featuring Danny Glover and 84 year old Fidel Castro in key scenes,  raises and tries to answer the question: what did Cuba do to deserve such hostile treatment?  It traces key events from the Bay of Pigs and  Cuban Missile Crisis, through multiple assassination attempts on Fidel Castro’s life. This documentary reveals a story of violence that also echoed on the streets of Washington DC, New York and especially Miami where Cuban American critics of the bombers and shooters also wound up dead.
