Communist Believer/Castroite Spy Ana Montes should have had a Life Sentence or Worst,as fully and brilliantly told in the book this scumbag betrayed America and it's not something that is to be ignored or say what can a Little Island like Cuba do? Well Cuba does not Like The United States for one and is allied with Our Worst enemies.The book tells in detail how this person if you can call her that betrayed her country,her Faith(Catholic?Attended Mass,Sickening)and Her family and co-workers by selling the store like Obama did in 2014,(Cuban Five anyone? The spies who were implicit in the Brothers to The rescue Shootdown,4 of them were American citizens! along with the Treacherous Francis who has Betrayed God's word/The Church.)This book mattered in 2007 and it matters now and beyond,she worked for over 20 years in the highest and most top secret Clearances in our government she could have done even more harm,Her arrest happen after 9/11 hence why not much stink was made ado but the author points out eloquently that should have been a big stink and we Should worry,This person did this not for money but out of Conviction of her love and belief of all things In Fidel Castro!(a Mass Murderer/Tyrant)sadly there are many like her despite the high education who admire Tyranny,or are Naive.A Puerto Rican by her Family(No surprise they wanted independence for Puerto Rico guess what the Loyalty lays)should have never held such high jobs in such positions,and had such a light sentence.A Cautionary tale that should not be repeated.
It matters not that Cuba is a flacid threat to the US, they are involved in Latin American leftist movements and looking to trade intel for goods and favors from the whose who of dictatorships. The author links Mondes directly to the death of a US military advisor working in Latin America. It is likely that there were more casualties.
One of the great frustrations of the case is the glacial pace of investigations. Again months and months were lost as the FBI agents worked with the DOJ's staff to try to get the required authorizations to bring the case foreward. In the end the events of 9-11 and the probability that Montes would compromise major anti-terror activities lead to her arrest before all the evidence could be gathered.
Just as we wondery why we could not connect the dots at Virginia Tech, one wonders why we keep erasing the dots in the interest of "justice" .
Like so many of these stories it begins with one suspicions person, initially ignored as onbody wants to believe that one of their own have betrayed the trust.
Mr. Cespedes ( see comments) offered the following insightful comments, "What this reviewer neglects to mention is that the damage done to US security by this Cuban spy is tremendous. The fact is that the Cuban dictatorship has close relationships with Iran, Syria, China, Russia and all other terrorist states in the world.Read more ›
The author is a very good writer. And clearly a smart and personable guy. I would love to have a beer or two with him.
I felt the book had some good counterintelligence nuggets of information.
