"Castro exudes the sense of seriousness and purposefulness that gives the Cuban socialist system its unique character. The revolution is moral without being moralistic."
Castro Spy, Kendall Myers is the correct answer for the above.
"Castro first and foremost is and always has been a committed egalitarian. He despises any system in which one class or group of people lives much better than another. He wanted a system that provided the basic needs to all—enough to eat, health care, adequate housing and education."
If you answered: "the Jimmy Carter -appointed head of Havana's Cuban Interest section, Wayne Smith " for the above quote--you win!
"Have the Cubans given up their personal freedom to get material security? Nothing I have seen yet suggests that, I can see nothing of value that has been lost by the revolution. The revolution has released enormous potential and liberated the Cuban spirit."

"Cuba has superb systems of health care and universal education..the Cuban embargo is the stupidest law ever passed in the U.S."

(For this exercise, please overlook that all of the above talking points issued by Castro to his propagandists are demonstratively false. The point is, who's parroting them)
In subsequent meetings with the FBI source, the Myers.... asked the source to "send special greetings and hugs" to certain Cuban intelligence officials.
Well, Democratic legislator Charles Rangel not only sends those greetings he delights in carrying them out in person, bear-hugging Castro on his last visit to New York in 2000, during a thunderous, roof-shaking chorus of "VIVA FIDEL!!--VIVA FIDEL!!" from the capacity crowd of his constituents at Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist, Church.
Kendall Myers boasts of receiving medals from Castro.
Well, our friend Prof. Tony De la Cova provides ready photographic proof of an Obama backer and frequent Miami Herald source, Max Lesnik, receiving medals from the Castro regime.
Considering the typical profile for a Castro Agent, and thus the literally millions of suspects, I'd say the FBI did a bang-up job in nabbing the Myers' in a short 30 years!
