The FBI at first refused to investigate Montes because she was the U.S. intelligence community’s most important analyst on Cuba. But Montes was arrested on Sept. 21, 2001, the day before she was to learn secrets about DIA targeting for the October 2001 military operation in Afghanistan. Officials feared she would pass the targeting data to Cuba before the operation began.

Montes pleaded guilty to spying and is serving a 25-year prison term.
