I’ll call the person who is the worst spy XX for the present purposes. I’ll give you a few hints so you can easily figure out who this person is. XX worked for the US government. XX caused more damage to America’s interests than any other person between the early 1980s up until 2001. XX is believed to have caused the deaths of many people who worked for the United States in foreign countries. XX also had connections with the FBI.
Have you figured out yet that it is Robert Hanssen the FBI agent who worked for the Soviets? If so you’re wrong. XX was more highly placed than Hanssen. XX had access to many more top secret documents which were passed on to the Cuban government. XX has been accused of being “directly responsible for the death of Green Beret SGT Gregory A. Fronius who was killed at El Paraiso, El Salvador, on March 31, 1987 during the FMLN attack.”
XX probably did more to undermine the USA’s interests in Latin America and the Caribbean than any other person in history. The full extent of the damage caused by XX will never be fully known. Yet in 1997 the CIA Director George Tenet gave XX a certificate of distinction.
XX had two connections with the FBI, actually more, who were very close. XX met with them on occasion while spying for Cuba. One FBI agent was L.M who worked in the Miami office. L.M was a “veteran FBI language analyst who translated wiretaps and other sensitive communications.” Another of XX’s contact was A.M., an FBI agent who worked in Atlanta. XX called him Tito.
By now you know who XX is. If not I’ll give you a few more hints.XX was a high-ranking official in the Defense Intelligence Agency. XX was called upon to brief the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the National Security Council about Cuba while working as a spy for Cuba. XX drafted a Pentagon report on Cuba with the help of Cuban connections. Just before XX was caught another promotion was in store. XX was to receive a prestigious fellowship with the National Intelligence Council which advised the director of the CIA.
By now you must know that XX is Ana Montes. Her connections with the FBI are L.M. her sister Lucy and A.M her brother Tito. They are embarrassed and humiliated by having their sister become a spy.
Other big spies such as Robert Hanssen got life without parole; Jonathon Pollard got life without parole (he spied for an ally); Oliver Ames got life without parole; For some reason Ana only got 25 years in prison.
Ana is unrepentant. She has written from prison that “some things in life are worth going to prison for” and “I owe allegiance to principles and not to any one country or government or person.” What does her sister Lucy the long time FBI agent say of this? She says when Ana walks out of prison in July 2023 she’ll offer to let Ana live in her home for a few months to get settled.
Lucy said: “There’s nothing acceptable about what she did. On the other hand I don’t feel like I can turn my back on her, because she’s my sister.”
Lucy still works for the FBI as does her brother, Tito. No one condemns them for the actions of their sister. They do their jobs and do them well.
By now you’ve guessed how Billy Bulger works into this story. He, like Lucy, has a sibling who has committed criminal acts. Although Whitey’s actions aren’t as bad as treason, they may if proven come close to it. Nothing is worse than treason which puts us all at risk and causes more loss of life than ten Whiteys could do.
No one condemns Lucy for feeling an obligation because of her sibling relationship. Billy on the other had has suffered much because of his relationship. He’s lost his high position. He’s been roundly condemned in the mainstream media and by the newspaper writers who have authored books about Whitey.
Why is that? How can it be that none of us blame Lucy or Tito for Ana’s treachery yet so many blame Billy for Whitey’s actions? Is it because Billy is a person out of favor and money can be made by humiliating him? Sadly, that seems to be the only reason, greed and ganging up.
And one other thing that’s strange in this matter. Ana the master spy who is responsible for an uncountable amount of losses of life among people who were supporting America will do less time in prison than John Connolly whose conviction of the murder of one person is highly questionable.
What is it about the Whitey case that has so thwarted rational thinking and normal justice?
