Cuba Convenes Online Forum on Cuban 5 1

Clearly oblivious to the hypocrisy of hosting an online forum in a nation where internet access is heavily restricted, Prensa Latina announced today that a “discussion forum” on the Cuban 5 will occur on Monday, November 26th.  “Convened by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the exchange will be held between 10:00 and 12:00 local time (15:00 to 17:00 GMT), with a panel made up of the relatives of the Cuban Five…and members of the International Committee working for their release,” PRELA reported.

Beginning tomorrow (November 22), interested parties can post questions or comments at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX) site: Targeted predominantly to foreign audiences, the event will be broadcast live via the MINREX website.

  1. Professionally speaking, the Cuban 5 failed pathetically in their mission as spies and instead of being glorified by the Cuban regime they should be punished severely by their DI superiors.

    They did not observe strict communications discipline when encrypting and decrypting the secret messages sent to and received from the Havana espionage center. Instead of destroying any traces of being in touch with Cuban intelligence by formatting the hard drive of their laptops, after every encryption or decryption of secret communications, they ignored the secret messages that were saved on the hard drive and thus allowed FBI agents who had entered clandestinely their apartments to copy the decrypted messages and be able to read the whole secret traffic between Havana and Miami. For such sloppy handling of codes, Soviet spies, the mentors of Castro’s secret agents, would have been shot.

    DI personnel in charge of selecting and vetting potential agents should also be punished for having chosen more than once the wrong recruits. First, it was Ed Levy who let the FBI know about the infiltration of Red Avispa spies into the US and then Joseph Santos disclosed in the Miami court the secrets of Castro’s espionage. For such inept discharge of their duties, Soviet KGB or GRU (military intelligence) heads of departments would also have been shot.

    In short, Red Avispa, was a miserable failure, right from day one, and there is nothing to be proud of. However, it has been turned into a legend, like Che Guevara’s exploits and serves as an instrument for brainwashing the Cuban youth and mobilizing the masses for promoting the aims of the communist dictatorship.
