In 1999 Hillary Clinton played a crucial role in obtaining presidential clemency for 12 members of the infamous Puerto Rican terrorist group, FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation).
Between 1974 and 1983 the FALN claimed a decade long terror war against the US for Puerto Rican “independence” but planned to transform Puerto Rico into a Cuban bases Marxist state. Nine people were seriously injured in 28 Chicago area bombings. Six were murdered in NY, including four (60 injured) in the horrific January 24, 1975 lunchtime bombing of historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan.
My father, Frank Connor, only 33, was murdered at Fraunces. Our family planned to celebrate my recent 9th and brother’s 11th birthdays the night of our father’s murder.
