Iraqi sleeper captured in Illinois

>> Wednesday, September 01, 2004

Federal agents have arrested a Des Plaines, Illinois man as a deep-cover Iraqi spy.


Now this seems fairly important regarding the Iraq question. If Iraq had sleeper cells in the US, with their agents waiting for instructions from their handlers, one has to wonder what those instructions eventually would be. Deep-cover agents are not typically used for information-gathering exercises -- they initiate aggressive action, and they're dangerous because they appear out of nowhere.

Obviously this is just an arrest, not a conviction, so we have not tested the evidence in court. But if true, this provides yet another example of the danger Saddam presented to the United States, and another reason why deposing him and getting our hands on the files of the IIS were critical to winning a war on terrorism.
