Iran's Kuwaiti Sleeper Cells

Jim Dunnigan's excellent "Dirty Little Secrets" site is back:

Kuwait announced that its police and intelligence services had discovered an Iran espionage and sabotage organization within Kuwait. The Iranian agents, recruited from among the Shia (who are half the population) in Kuwait, were often trained in Iran. The Iranian network consisted mainly of "sleeper cells" (agents who were inactive, and went about their normal lives until activated by their Iranian bosses.) Kuwait is still trying to discover the extent of the Iranian networks, but fears that it may be a large one (several thousand members).


Kuwait would be a good place to seize if one were seeking to dominate the Middle East, as it's a reliable U.S. ally prone to worry enough about being gobbled up by its neighbors to grant basing rights.
