And besides those sent by Saddam, how many sleeper agents have been sent by jihad groups into the US? If the moderate Muslim community were really all that it claims to be, it would be helping law enforcement officials find the answer to that question. From AP, :
Sami Khoshaba Latchin, 57, pleaded innocent to making a false statement to immigration authorities. A federal judge ordered him held for a bail hearing Sept. 7….
Latchin was “an Iraqi intelligence spy sent to this country to be a sleeper agent,” with directions to “assimilate himself into our culture,” Assistant U.S. Attorney James Conway said.
He is not alleged to have compromised national security, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said.
Federal authorities do not allege Latchin committed any other crimes. But “if he came here to be here and be available to the Iraqi Intelligence Service if needed, that alone we think is a threat to our national security,” Fitzgerald said.
Latchin has lived in the United States for about 11 years, according to federal officials. He is a naturalized U.S. citizen living in Des Plaines, Fitzgerald said.
