Alan Gross poses with the fine folks who duped him, spied on him, and helped convict him (Moscow show-trials–alive and well in Cuba).

During the Moscow show-trials that headlined Stalin's Great Terror most of Stalin's (utterly innocent*) victims confessed to every outrageous charge Andrei Vishinsky shrieked against them. Some even thanked their prosecutor!

Are we getting there with the hapless Alan Gross in Cuba? Where Vishinsky's legal system is proudly preserved?

Though you'd never guess this from today's Reuters story, above Gross is posing with the very Castroite apparatchiks who spied on him from day one and testified against him.

But it gets better. Here's how Reuters' Daniel Trotta describes the transgressions of the KGB-trained spies and accessories to multiple-murder known as "The Cuban Five:"

"Cuba previously had more directly sought to link Gross's incarceration to the cases of the so-called Cuban Five, unregistered agents who were caught spying on Cuban exile groups in Florida that opposed the communist government in Havana."

Le RRRRRONCA!!!

(* I write "utterly innocent" meaning of the charges Stalin and Vishinsky leveled against them. Faithful communists and blood-soaked apparatchiks of a murderous system they (the founding Bolsheviks, including Trotsky) certainly deserved their fate--but not at the bloody hands of their own partners in crime. Same applied to General Arnaldo Ochoa. )

    The Dworin crone looks like a piece of work--what a witch. She could be some humanoid insect from a Kafka story.

    Alan "Woe-is-Me" Gross is repulsive. He needs to man up, stop sucking up to and embrassing his enemies, and apologize to the U.S. and the Cuban exile community that he denounced. I hope that Ileana Ros doesn't go running to embrace this traitor who denounced one he lands in America. He should do the rest of the 12 years in prison that he has left.

Later, as a proper cap for the revolting Stalinesque charade, Dworin visited Gross in his cell and posed smilingly with her arm around the gaunt but bitterly smiling American hostage she swindled, framed, and helped condemn to fifteen years in a KGB-designed dungeon.
