I don't blame the Castro dictatorship for the arrests of a former U.S. State Department official and his wife on charges they spied for the Havana regime. It was the smart play for an otherwise pissant country that despite its many disadvantages, has survived and sometimes thrived — through cloak-and-dagger and other means — in its decades-long rivalry with its much more powerful northern neighbor.
The villains in this spy caper, if they are proven guilty, are Walter Kendall Myers, 72, and his wife, Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers, 71. Authorities alleged they passed secrets to their Cuban spymasters not for money, but because they believe in the Castro revolution.
Well, isn't that special.
Here's an idea. If they are found guilty, stick them in a hole no different than those now holding political prisoners in Cuba. Let them truly understand what they have been aiding for so many years.
That would be justice.
