Update on the couple arrested for spying for Cuba

He was a courtly State Department intelligence analyst from a prominent family who loved to sail and peruse the London Review of Books. Occasionally, he would voice frustration with U.S. policies, but to his liberal neighbors in Northwest D.C. it was nothing out of the ordinary. “We were all appalled by the Bush years,” one said.

What Walter Kendall Myers kept hidden, according to documents unsealed in court Friday, was a deep and long-standing anger toward his country, an anger that allegedly made him willing to spy for Cuba for three decades.

“I have become so bitter these past few months. Watching the evening news is a radicalizing experience,” he wrote in his diary in 1978, referring to what he described as greedy U.S. oil companies, inadequate health care and “the utter complacency of the oppressed” in America. On a trip to Cuba, federal law enforcement officials said in legal filings, Myers found a new inspiration: the communist revolution.

de la Cruz points out the irony that a couple of privilege, privilege gained here, in America, somehow learns to despise the country that allowed them their prosperity. It is truly mind boggling isn’t it? So many affuent Liberals, rather than celebrating the country that enabled them to be rich, instead loathe America. Some, like these two traitors, even seek to destroy America.

  1. As a first-generation Cuban-American graduate student at SAIS (where Myers did his MA and PhD), I am beyond angered. How Myers survived a life of more than 70 years in utter naivitĂ© is a luxury, most certainly a byproduct of his pampered, sheltered, clueless life. He is a disgrace to the USA. For those who think the charges will be dropped, have hope – Ana Belen Montes is still sitting in prison, and I don’t think she’ll come out any time soon.
