American spy for Cuba: ‘I am a soldier for the Cuban revolution’

Some ipecac syrup for a Saturday morning.

Cuban spy, back in Havana after years in U.S. prison: No regrets

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CvkufDMtW3U/T2foCTecgzI/AAAAAAABNec/yG6uf97_6bk/s1600/rene-gonzalez.jpgHavana, Cuba (CNN) -- Proclaiming "I am a soldier for the Cuban revolution," a Cuban intelligence agent said Friday he has no regrets about the spying that landed him in U.S. prisons for more than a decade.

"I felt that it was the right thing to do," René González said during a press conference in Havana.

González was a member of the so-called "Cuban Five," a network of agents in South Florida that the Cuban government said was gathering intelligence to prevent terrorist attacks against Cuba. U.S. federal prosecutors called the network a dangerous undercover spy cell.

The men were convicted in 2001 and ever since have been the focus of an international campaign by Cuban officials to free them.

González was released from prison in October 2011 but was required to serve three years probation in the United States.

Last week, however, U.S. Judge Joan Lenard ruled that if González, who had already been allowed to temporarily return to Cuba for his father's funeral, could stay there provided he renounce his U.S. citizenship.

    Letting this SOB "have his way" is simply a mockery of justice, and as far as I'm concerned, that means Lenard is a disgraceful fraud. She should know the bastard has no regrets--he basically got away with it, and now he can live comfortably off being a "national hero," just like Elián's biological father. Well, I suppose we should be grateful the other four spies haven't been let off the hook. Yet.
