Most Damaging Spy in U.S. History Released From Prison
The most effective Cuban spy known to have penetrated United States intelligence was released from a federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas, on January 6 after serving 21 years of her 25-year sentence.
Ana Montes, a senior analyst at the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, was arrested in 2001 for revealing the names of two covert U.S. intelligence officers and for receiving encoded messages from the Cuban government. Investigative journalist Jim Popkin, the author of Code Name Blue Wren: The True Story of America’s Most Dangerous Female Spy―and the Sister She Betrayed, told abc News that Montes has spoken with her family and will likely be moving to Puerto Rico where many people consider her a hero.
Blue Wren: During her two-decade Washington career, Montes won citations and awards for her work in charge of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Cuba desk. Some colleagues even called her the “queen of Cuba,” yet outside office hours, she was sharing classified information with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s intelligence agency.
Allegedly, Montes’s Federal Bureau of Investigation background check failed to detect her socialist sympathies or her disdain for U.S. foreign policy, so she was granted top-secret security clearance. The secrets she fed Cuba during the 1980s and 1990s helped Castro set up anti-American regimes in both Nicaragua and El Salvador, which is why Jim Popkin and others refer to her as “one of the most damaging spies in U.S. history.”
“Deep state”: A National Security Agency official eventually unmasked Montes in the lead-up to her 2001 arrest, but questions remain about how much her superiors knew about her undercover activity. Barack Obama’s director of National Security, James Clapper, headed up the Defense Intelligence Agency from 1991 to 1995. Michael Waller, a senior analyst for strategy at the Center for Security Policy, believes Clapper “sheltered Montes when he ran the dia.” After all, this is the same Clapper who, in Waller’s words, “surreptitiously got passes for Russia’s top gru military intelligence officers to roam the Pentagon.” And it is also the same Clapper who collaborated with known Communist sympathizers Barack Obama and John Brennan in their bid to frame President Donald Trump for crimes he never committed.
Espionage center: Herbert W. Armstrong began warning in the 1940s that the U.S. was being infiltrated by Communist revolutionaries who wanted to overthrow the U.S. Constitution. Montes was one of these revolutionaries, but she was far from the only one. Obama, Brennan and Clapper bent over backward to reestablish diplomatic relations with Cuba in 2014 despite knowing Cuba was still spying on the U.S. In fact, two years before Obama’s deadly dangerous Cuba deal, a House Committee on Foreign Affairs report titled “Cuba’s Global Network of Terrorism, Intelligence and Warfare,” stated, “Cuba is perfectly located to be in a downlink for all U.S. communications. It is, in fact, the only place outside of Fort Meade in the Western Hemisphere where large-scale interception of communications is possible.” For decades, Cuba’s location has made it a target for any foreign power that wants to spy on the U.S., and now America’s leaders are making it easier for them by practically leaving the door unlocked.
Prophecy says: In one prophecy, God likens end-time Israel to a hedged vineyard protected on all sides. The United States has been hedged north, south, east and west by nonthreatening nations and geographic fortifications. But because of the sins of the people, God warns, “I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down” (Isaiah 5:5). In 1979, the Trumpet’s parent magazine, the Plain Truth, identified Castro’s 1959 revolution as the first breach in America’s protective hedge. In light of how valuable Cuba has been to America’s enemies in the past, you need to watch what is happening in Cuba.
