Chrono-vortex. These are invoked by using the Chronosphere, although they don't always appear (20% chance). Make 'em go away by 'feeding' them units, unless it's far from your base. Eventually they disappear of their own accord too. http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Chrono_vortex
In the 4th or 5th allied mission where you send a spy to save Tanya, I learned that you can keep the spy, Tanya will break out in a matter of time. Any use of that?
Not really. By this point in the game you can train extra Spies anyway, and sitting around waiting for Tanya to escape while you do nothing but watch a Spy stand around isn't anyone's idea of fun. --- The noblest of all dogs is the hot dog: it feeds the hand that bites it.
