Sen. Jesse Helms expressed dismay Tuesday over reports that an
``spy master,'' who he said was known for his support for ``terrorism and
espionage,'' has received permission from the U.S. State Department to be
posted at Cuba's diplomatic mission in Washington.
Helms, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said
people ``will be outraged'' over the appointment of Fernando Garcia Bielsa, who
was once assigned to the Cuban mission to the United Nations.
A U.S. official, asking not to be identified, confirmed that Garcia
approved for the assignment but added that no visa has been issued for him to
take up his post.
