    I'm not the one accusing an entire political ideology of being a fifth column. This is an attempt by US Conservative to accuse political opponents of being commie subversives, nothing more, nothing less.
    Me: There are lefty spies in academia..

    You: Yeah but they aren't ALL spies.

    Again, read the last line of my sig. Thats you.

    I didn't invent these facts, they are real, according to the FBI. The crazy thing about facts-they are still true even if someone you dont like brings them up.

    What's the point in making a thread about left-leaning spies for Cuba in our academia and focusing on that aspect, even though the FBI report clearly pointed to a multitude of factors (most of which are non-ideological)?

    I'm not disputing the facts. Obviously we have spies and fifth-columnists, that's how the world works. I won't even dispute that many leftists can be subversives - after all, the entire American Communist Party was directed by the Soviet Union. No one ever posts facts for the sake of it: there will always be some bias. My issue is with your obvious agenda of demonizing the left.

    What do you suppose we do about the Cuban assets in our academia?

    I mentioned it because we need to remain ever vigilant. By keeping this public, we increase awareness and hopefully diminish it in the future. But if people never hear about it, they dont know theres a problem.

    Help me create awareness here-THATS my motive, dont attack me.

    You just can't admit you're just playing the same old CON game. Find a 'report', blow it out of proportion, forget a little thing called context and then try and lay the CON game off on someone/thing else.

    Fact is there is no real left wing spy ring, a Cuban defector claims there is some 'program'. A FEW, read VERY few have been accused of spying, a nit compared to the Russian and our dear friends the Israeli programs and the REAL FACT-

    An extreme CON wants to try and make a mountain out of a mole hill, claiming a vague reports says far more than it actually does.

    The crazy thing about such CON games, the few facts are true- the wild conclusion some CONs leap to to pure CON masturbatory theater...

    Stroke on McDuff...

    There are leftist spies in academia, and thats a problem. Can we at least both agree on that?
    What should be obvious is there are all kinds of ideologies and nationalities represented on any one campus, and there are almost certainly as many types of spies as there are ideologies and nationalities etc. that can be exploited by foreign governments, some of them "leftist," many of them not.

    Are they engaging in espionage for a foreign government?
