Venezuela imprisoned Posada over the bombing ... until he broke out of prison in 1985 while awaiting trial, only to become a mercenary arms trafficker for the U.S. during the Iran-Contra scandal. Oh, and to further drive the whole "real-life Bond villain" image home, Posada was once shot in the face by an assassin, and survived.
The U.S. finally accused the man of being a terrorist after he personally admitted to a deadly string of terrorist bombings against foreign tourists in Cuba. This was of course after the Bush administration most likely secured him a presidential pardon in Panama, where he was serving time for trying to blow up Fidel Castro. Posada eventually landed in Texas where authorities tried to get his homicidal and illegal ass deported. However Posada got asylum because the countries that offered to take him in (Cuba and Venezuela) would most likely torture him to death.

"What did I do?! Oh ... right, the international terrorism thing."
Posada was also tried in the United States for perjury, but got acquitted and is now a free man living in -- all together now -- Florida.
