All of this is welcome news to Joseph Connor, whose father Frank was killed in a FALN bombing in 1975, when Joseph was eight. Leaving four dead and injuring more than 50 at the historic New York Fraunces Tavern, the attack was by far the most devastating of the bombings for which the organization took credit.

    “Whether [López Rivera] walked the bomb into Fraunces Tavern or is irrelevant,” Connor said. “Osama bin Laden didn’t fly the plane into the World Trade Center either.”

    López Rivera has denied involvement in FALN’s Fraunces Tavern attack, as well as its other deadly bombing in 1977.

    No one was ever charged with a crime in the Fraunces Tavern incident.
