This book removes the thin fabric of lies around the case of five Cuban intelligence agents who came to Miami to fight terrorism This book has the detail and the analysis. Read it. Saul Landau, Director, Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up? An invaluable and informative account of the last chapter of the Cold War between Cuba and the United States a story that is alternatively bizarre, surreal and ever suspenseful. Ann Louise Bardach, Author, Without FidelandCuba Confidential What Lies Across the Water recounts the events leading up to the 1998 arrest of the Cuban Five, five Cuban intelligence agents convicted of conspiring to commit espionage against the United States. The five agents Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez had been sent to Florida to infiltrate and report on the activities of Miami-based, anti-Cuban terrorist groups, who were carrying out deadly terrorist attacks against Cuba. Cuba even passed on information its agents learned about those illegal attacks to the FBI. Instead of arresting the terrorists, however, the FBI arrested the Cuban Five. While the Cubans remain in jail one serving a double-life-plus-fifteen-year sentence the terrorists they tried to stop remain free. The story of the Cuban Five illustrates the injustice and hypocrisy of the U.S. government s supposed post-9/11 zero tolerance policy toward countries harbouring terrorists. Why were men who tried to prevent terrorist attacks against Cuba charged with espionage against the U.S.? And why does the U.S. continue to protect and harbour known terrorists?
