Spy who was brought in from the Cold War

Quietly, and a quarter century after it ended. While the press was busy hearing Alan Gross--if Cuba's medical care is so good, how did he lose all those teeth while confined on Fidel's island paradise?--say how he supported President Obama, the real hero slipped into the United States to be debriefed;
He was, in many ways, a perfect spy — a man so important to Cuba’s intelligence apparatus that the information he gave to the Central Intelligence Agency paid dividends long after Cuban authorities arrested him and threw him in prison for nearly two decades.
Rolando Sarraff Trujillo has now been released from prison and flown out of Cuba as part of the swap for three Cuban spies imprisoned in the United States that President Obama announced Wednesday.
Apparently he wasn't executed, as most traitors to the Castro cause have been, because his parents were both high officials in the Cuban government. We eagerly await the memoir.
