EL PASO, Texas — A former New York Times reporter who interviewed an anti-communist militant about masterminding deadly 1997 bombings in Cuba is continuing her unwilling testimony at his perjury trial.
Ann Louise Bardach fought subpoenas in the case against Luis Posada Carriles (loo-EES' poh-SAH'-duh cah-REE'-lehs), saying it will make sources unwilling to talk to journalists. Friday marks her third day testifying as prosecutors play tapes of her 1998 interviews with the 83-year-old Posada.
Posada was born in Cuba. He once worked for the CIA, but now faces perjury and other charges. Prosecutors say he lied about planning the bombings during immigration hearings in El Paso, after sneaking into the U.S. in 2005.
Bardach says that during the interviews, Posada admitted planning the blasts, which killed an Italian tourist.
