Ana Montes, who is regarded as "one of the most damaging spies," has been released from a prison in Texas.
Montes, now 65, worked for the US Defense Intelligence Agency, or DIA, as the top analyst on Cuba during the Cold War. Washington knew her as the "Queen of Cuba" for her insights into Fidel Castro's communist regime.

If shes one of the worst they should have made her serve all 25 years of her sentence. Frigging idiots.
She should lose her citizenship, instead she will probably end up as a commentator on CNN
When she was working a clerical job at the Department of Justice, Cuban authorities identified her as someone who would be sympathetic to their cause.
Ana Montes, a Cuban penetration agent inside the Defense Intelligence Agency, drafted a 1998 intelligence analysis that played down the threat from Cuba....
The deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Defense Department by an enemy agent in recent history was pulled off by a spy working for the terror-sponsoring, drug-smuggling Castro regime.
The spy’s name is Ana Belen Montes, known as “Castro’s Queen Jewel” in the intelligence community. In 2002 she was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and today she serves a 25-year sentence in Federal prison. Only a plea bargain spared her from sizzling in the electric chair like the Rosenbergs.
Promptly upon Montes’ conviction a Cuban spy named Gustavo Machin, who worked under diplomatic cover in Washington D.C. (and thus enjoyed “diplomatic immunity”) along with 14 of his KGB-trained Cuban colleagues, were all booted from the U.S..... -—— https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3553697/posts
She seems like a perfect Dem candidate.
Lots of info at the link I just posted... Obama had an interesting White House visitor.
On what grounds was she released?! WHO gave the order for her release?
The article (and it’s sourced articles) are oddly quiet about that bit [Obama]
She fooled lie detectors by tightening her sphincter when answering the yes or no questions. It was a commonly known “hack” for subverting tests.
It’s an interesting case study, and there is quite a bit of written info and some documentaries out detailing the crimes, recognition, and capture.
She was very efficient at her craft.
She was arrested on September 21, 2001, just 10 days after the 911 attacks on the US.
There was an entire spy ring caught up with her, some 14 people. If I am not mistaken some of them were involved in an effort to sabotage the US power grid or at least power stations in Florida that supply MacDill, etc... and at the same time there were Islamic terrorists planning the same.
The Obama admin worked overtime trying to get those spies to Cuba, IIRC...
...Interestingly, just days after the 9-11 terror attack, Castro’s KGB-founded and mentored intelligence mounted a major deception operation attempting to trip-up our investigation into the terrorist culprits, not that most of you ever heard about it from the mainstream media. So here:
“In the six months after the 9/11 attacks,” ran the Miami Herald investigative report, “up to 20 Cubans walked into U.S. embassies around the world and offered information on terrorism threats. Eventually, all were deemed to be Cuban intelligence agents and collaborators, purveying fabricated information. Two Cuba experts said spies sent by Cuba to the United States were part of a permanent intelligence program to mislead, misinform and identify U.S. spies” (emphasis added).... -—— From another thread on FR
But Hernandez’ KGB-trained colleague Gustavo Machin made Hernandez’s unconditional release (along with that of three of his convicted Cuban spy-colleagues) part of the price Obama had to pay for the privilege of letting Cuba set up an elaborate spy center in Washington, D.C. this week [my note: mid July 2015... new Cuban embassy]....
From another thread: ...The 0bama administration’s fetish to quickly and fully satisfy every whim of the Communist murderers of U.S. citizens reached Jerry Springer Show levels when—prior to his release— a specimen of Gerardo Hernandez semen was ferreted from his prison cell to Cuba. Hernandez and his wife, you see, were eager to add another Communist subject to the Castro-Family Kingdom but couldn’t quite figure out a workable procedure.
Fear not! Raul Castro rang his little bell and 0bama’s State Department. (Ben Rhodes in particular) quickly scurried over, smiling, bowing, eager to please...
Wonderful. A new girlfriend for Swillwall.
On Dec. 9, (2009) Obama nominated Mari Del Carmen Aponte to be ambassador to El Salvador, despite the fact that in the late 1990s, the FBI discovered that she was working with Cuban intelligence officers. According to Insight Magazine, “When the FBI eventually questioned her about her involvement with Cuban intelligence, she reportedly refused to cooperate.”
snip from another thread...
But Aponte’s past is one big red flag. From 1982 to 1994 Aponte lived with a man who worked closely with the Cuban Mission to the U.N. and allegedly was a spy.
Aponte claims her ties to the Cubans were just “social,” but Cuban spies working in the surveillance hotbed of New York don’t waste time on things “social.”
They trawl left-wing community groups for potential agents of influence, seeking ideological affinity and common interests. That’s how they recruited another Puerto Rican of similar background, Ana Montes, who was convicted of spying in 2002....
