EL PASO, Texas — A former Florida prosecutor is defending the reporting of an ex-New York Times journalist who interviewed an anti-communist militant now on trial for perjury in Texas.
Alberto Milian testified for prosecutors Monday during the trial of ex-CIA agent Luis Posada Carriles. The 83-year-old Posada is accused of lying during U.S. citizenship hearings and failing to acknowledge his role in 1997 bombings in Cuba.
Journalist Ann Louise Bardach interviewed Posada in 1998. Her articles said Posada took responsibility for the blasts.
Defense attorneys say she's biased, but Milian says Bardach's work is accurate. Milian was quoted in one of Bardach's books about the Cuban-American exile community.
But Milian admitted he's been rebuked by a Florida appeals court for prosecutorial misconduct and once got in a fistfight with a defense attorney.
