Washington, DC —- Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Ranking Member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, along with her South Florida colleagues Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Mario Diaz-Balart have requested a damage assessment on former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) analyst Ana Belen Montes.
Ms. Montes is serving a long prison sentence for her role as a Cuban spy inside the DIA who caused incalculable damage to our Latin American intelligence networks.
Said Ros-Lehtinen, “Ms. Montes may well turn out to be one of the most notorious spy’s to infiltrate the DIA. Her illegal and treasonous actions against our great country should be seen for what they are: A very serious breach of our national security from a country whose communist regime would like to see the United States on its knees.
My colleagues, Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart, and I have requested a top to bottom assessment of the serious damage Ms. Montes’ spying caused to our intelligence networks. Our questions are simple: How many reports did Montes write? How much influence did she have on the final reports the policymakers read? The persons she met with? What was the extent of her spying?
We have no doubt in our minds that the intelligence apparatus of the Castro brothers shares vital intelligence on the US with our adversaries China, North Korea, Iran, Russia and Venezuela. Our intent is to make sure that every US policymaker is aware of the great harm Ms. Montes caused to our nation and to try and stop any other Cuban agents from divulging our secrets to our enemies.”
