Cuba’s Castro regime a primary spy threat to the U.S.

I didn't' say it, an American intelligence and counterintelligence expert said it.

Via Texas A&M's The Battalion:

Former intelligence agents talk spying

spyStudents and visitors caught a glimpse of the complex and deadly world of counterintelligence Monday evening at “Spy Games: The Art of Counterintelligence” as two espionage experts discussed security issues the U.S. faces at home and abroad.

James Olson, former chief of counterintelligence at the CIA and senior lecturer at Texas A&M’s Bush School, and Michael Waguespack, former senior counterintelligence executive with the FBI, described how the U.S. faces a threat rarely seen or heard of by the public — spying.

“There are friendly countries, but there are no friendly intelligence services,” Olson said.

Olson and Waguespack described a world hidden from the public, where countries use sophisticated spy networks to steal U.S. political and technological secrets and to compromise U.S. spy networks abroad.

Olson named China, Russia and Cuba as the primary threats in U.S. counterintelligence.

Olson said foreign intelligence agents use a wide variety of covers to seek U.S. intelligence, from business and diplomatic covers to student identities. Olson said the Chinese, for example, have gained access to U.S. nuclear weapons data and sophisticated technology that has allowed them to upgrade their combat aircraft and submarines to levels more advanced than their domestic technology would allow.

“Where is the outrage? Where is the demand for action?” Olson said.

    There's no outrage or call for action because it's not "progressive" to give a shit.

    Interesting that Olson excluded Iran and Israel as primary threats in U.S. counterintelligence, even though the U.S. Defense Intelligence agency lists both of those nations with the other three as the top five concerns.
