Numbers Stations used by Washington based Cuban spies

A call for “comprehensive damage assessment” came from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after the arrest of Walter Kendall Myers and his wife Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers yesterday, June 5 2009. The couple is officially accused of spying for the Cuban government for up to 30 years. Reports are indicating that Shortwave radios were used by the couple to receive encrypted messages from Cuba via Numbers Stations broadcasts. 8 years earlier Ana Belen Montes was also arrested for spying for the Cuban government, evidence in her case included a Shortwave radio and one-time pads on her laptop.

This is good news for Clandestine as it provides further evidence that these mysterious broadcasts are used by governments to communicate to spies in the field.
