“As U.S. troops became more familiar with Iraq, and the details of Saddam’s foreign espionage efforts came to light, it became known that Saddam had some U.S. citizens on the payroll. Over a dozen suspects were uncovered, and most were charged, if not prosecuted, for espionage. In Michigan, where the largest concentration of Arab-Americans live, four U.S. citizens have been prosecuted in the last few years. Some of Saddam’s agents even took jobs as interpreters in Iraq after 2003.”
*I guess we were susceptible for many reasons. The biggest being that the USA had (as of 2006) only 6 FBI agents with advanced Arabic skillz.
