On September 15, 1998, USA Today reported, “Ten people were charged in what prosecutors said is the largest Cuban spy ring ever uncovered in the United States since Fidel Castro came to power nearly 40 years ago.” Discussion of the controversial La Red Avispa or Wasp Network showcases the creativity, patience, and tenacity of the Cuban Directorate of Intelligence (DI) that ran the network based in south Florida. The spy ring sought to penetrate American military bases, infiltrate anti-Castro groups and manipulate US media and political organizations. Connie Huff Allen, a retired US Army Counterintelligence (CI) Special Agent and former Senior Instructor at the US Army’s Advanced Foreign CI Course and former Professor/VP for Training and Education at the Centre for CI and Security Studies, will address the spy ring’s members, missions, and neutralization by the FBI.
