    ROSS: "Forty-five thousand Cubans have settled in Miami since Castro took power in Cuba seventeen years ago. Most of the exiles have long since given up hope for an armed invasion of their home-land to overthrow Castro. But a few are continuing to fight outside of Cuba - in Miami and elsewhere with assassinations and bombings aimed at people they think are helping Castro. Anti-Castro terrorists set off more than forty bombs in Miami alone last year, as the United States policy toward Castro seemed to be softening and many Cuban exile leaders criticised the terrorists' actions. Many of the terrorists were trained to handle explosives by the CIA for the Bay of Pigs Invasion."



    OFFICER: "Four of the bombers that we have run across here in the local area have received training as result of their participation in activities against Cuba."



    ROSS: "CIA training for the most part?"



    OFFICER: "They have been trained. Who trained them I don't know".



    ROSS: "Federal authorities believe anti-Castro terrorists were responsible for the bomb which killed Orlando Letelier, Chile's ambassador to the United States under the Marxist Allende regime. And four Cuban exiles have been charged with bombing a Cuban passenger plane over Barbados in October. All 73 persons on board were killed. Castro blamed the CIA and abruptly cancelled the anti-hi-jacking agreement between Cuba and the United States. One of the men charged with murder in the plane bombing is doctor Orlando Bosch. a CIA operative in the early 1960's, once a Cuban exile paediatrician in Miami. Now Bosch is widely believe to be the top man in the anti-Castro terrorists' network. Bosch is wanted for violation in the United States. The federal authorities also want to question him about bombings in scores of Federal Government buildings and murders of at least five of his political opponents in Miami. Miami radio newsman Emilio Milian was one of Bosch's most vocal critics. His name was on a terrorist's target list. When Milian started his car one day last April a bomb went off. Milian lost both of his legs in the explosion. Emilio Milian went back to work at his Spanish-language radio station just last month. He is again writing and broadcasting strong editorials critical of the Cuban terrorists."



    MILIAN: "Well, I have no hate like I mentioned before. But I will continue this in a way, making editorials against terrorists."



    ROSS: "A special squad of FBI agents in now investigating the bombings and murders associated with Cuban terrorists. Indictments are expected next month. But no one knows how many Cuban terrorists there are and what it will take to stop them."
