Does Iran have a network of sleeper cells inside the United States that could strike us if we bomb their nuclear facilities? In a word. Yes.
From Pajamas Media:
The sleepers in the U.S. may number as many as 800.
This has been the consensus view for some time. There are “hundreds” of Hezbollah members here, a U.S. official told USA Today on May 13, 2003. A senior FBI official told the paper that some 20 potential Hezbollah cells are being investigated.
Senator Bob Graham reiterated to the Miami Herald on Nov. 13, 2002: “recent warnings that Hezbollah, backed by Iran and Syria, had a more established presence in the United States than al Qaeda, and was just as dangerous.”
Apparently they aren’t all “operational” cells, and many work on raising funds illegally (to send to Lebanon, etc.) while others work to research American weaknesses (malls, sports arenas, etc.) for future operations. Still, just as dangerous.
A bit of good news on this front though:
While Hezbollah may have a presence here, the U.S. is developing on their home turf. President Bush has authorized the CIA, in a “non-lethal presidential funding,” to covertly finance anti-Hezbollah groups in Lebanon, the terror group’s home base, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Even more evidence of the need for the John Doe Protection Act, I’d say. Eyes and ears open, infidels.
