A retired US State Department worker with top secret security clearance and his wife have been indicted on charges of spying for Cuba over the past three decades. The indictment unsealed Friday in Washington says Walter Kendall Myers and his wife, Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers, have been clandestine agents for Cuba since 1979. The pair was arrested Thursday. The indictment says the couple met with Cuban President Fidel Castro in Cuba in 1995, traveling through Mexico under false names. They allegedly made several other trips to Latin America and the Caribbean to meet with Cuban agents. David Kris, assistant attorney general for national security, described the couple's alleged spying for the communist government as "incredibly serious."
