Read the extensive feature article on Montes in April 18, 2013 issue of The Washington Post magazine
Ana Montes appeared to be a model employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), advancing quickly through the ranks to become its top analyst on Cuban affairs. But for sixteen years Montes sent Castro some of America's most closely guarded secrets and at the same time influenced what the United States thought it knew about Cuba. She is the only member of the U.S. intelligence community ever convicted of espionage for the Cuban government, yet her arrest ten days after 9/11 went largely unnoticed. Carmichael offers readers a front-row seat on that long and ultimately successful spy hunt.
Scott W. Carmichael, senior security and counterintelligence investigator for the Defense Intelligence Agency, was the lead agent on the Ana Montes espionage investigation. He lives in the Washington, DC area.
