El Salvador, March 31, 1987: One American and 64 others murdered thanks to Cuban spy Ana Belen Montes

It was twenty-six years ago yesterday that 65 people were murdered in a communist guerrilla attack in El Salvador, including American Army Green Beret, Sergeant First Class Gregory A. Fronius. The bloody attack took place shortly after a visit by a Cuban spy embedded in the U.S. military intelligence community, Ana Belen Montes.

This is the same Ana Belen Montes who authored a still much-quoted Defense Intelligence report that proclaimed Cuba is no longer a threat to the United States. Keep that and the memory of Sergeant First Class Gregory A. Fronius in mind the next time you hear someone quote Montes' report as evidence the Castro dictatorship should be removed from the list of State Sponsors of Terror.

Today in History: Cuban-Supported Guerrillas Killed 65 in El Salvador, Including an American “Green Beret”

March 31, 1987: Sergeant First Class Gregory A. Fronius, an Army “Green Beret” in El Salvador, died organizing the defense against the unprecedented guerrilla attack on the Salvadoran headquarters of the 4th Infantry Brigade at El Paraiso, Chalatenango. The pro-communist insurgents called themselves the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN).

The well-planned attack followed a visit to the camp by Cuban spy Ana Belen Montes weeks earlier. Sixty-four Salvadoran soldiers were killed and 79 wounded. Fronius, a member of the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), posthumously received the Silver Star for his combat service. Many in the U.S. Intelligence Community believe Montes provided intelligence critical to the attack by the Cuba trained and armed FMLN.

    She looks like a lovely person, doesn't she? Well, I suppose being a Castro spy was the next best thing to being a miliciana or a CDR head in Cuba.
