The Three Cuban Spies Released by Obama Helped Murder Four Americans | National Review Online

The three Cuban spies traded to the Castro regime in exchange for American contractor Alan Gross and a U.S. spy went far beyond the usual political or economic espionage carried out by foreign agents.

In fact, the Communist agents were engaged in detailed reconnaissance against U.S. military bases in south Florida, and fed information to the Cuban government that resulted in the murder of four American citizens.

Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, and Ramón Labañino were part of the “Miami Five,” a group of Cuban intelligence officers arrested in Miami in 1998. They were part of the Cuban government’s “Wasp Network,” a south Florida–based intelligence unit designed to keep an eye on the Cuban expatriate community and gauge U.S. military capabilities.
