ICYMI: Rubio Comments on Release of Ana Belén Montes

Jan 7, 2023 | Press Releases

Ana Belén Montes is free. Cuba remains anything but
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)

Ana Belén Montes has been released from federal prison. The most notorious spy for Cuba’s communist regime in American history is now free. Sadly, the people she used as an excuse to betray her own nation remain anything but….
 
Montes…was a U.S. citizen working in the Department of Justice when agents of the Castro brothers recruited her to be a spy…. [She] rose through the ranks in the federal government and eventually became the leading Cuba analyst in the Defense Intelligence Agency….
 
Montes was no harmless informant. Her leaks broke the cover of 450 American agents working in Latin America…. In 1996, her information also enabled the Castros to shoot down two U.S. planes carrying the heroes of Brothers to the Rescue…. Montes also sabotaged a top-secret satellite program…. New reporting also reveals that Montes was willing to undermine the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan, even if it meant the death of her fellow Americans….
 
[H]er treason against the U.S. accomplished nothing for the Cuban people. On the contrary, by helping the criminal Castro regime, Montes strengthened the Cuban people’s worst enemy…. 
 
That was always the case with the regime, but the last year-and-a-half have made it painfully obvious. In response to the anti-government protests that erupted across the island on July 11, 2021, Díaz-Canel has unjustly detained hundreds of ordinary men, women, and children. He now holds more than 1,000 political prisoners––and that number will only grow in the coming months.
 
Together with the regime’s incompetence and socialist policies, this tyranny has prompted a total economic collapse and a mass exodus from the island’s shores. The Obama-era holdovers in the Biden Administration, who are often regime sympathizers and apologists, should remember these facts the next time they attempt to defend Marxist governments in Latin America.
 
They should also remember that the regime is still actively working to undermine the U.S. and our interests worldwide…. Americans should remember Ana Belén Montes, even though she has served her time in prison. If we forget her story, it will surely repeat itself.
