A former CIA operations officer offers a dire warning to America: A number of Iranian-backed Hezbollah sleeper cells are hiding in the dark shadows of the country.
Sam Faddis, a veteran of the CIA who witnessed Hezbollah up close for decades, tells OneNewsNow there are at least three cases of “long-term, very sophisticated, very well-trained operatives” who have been identified inside the United States.
In an exclusive interview, the retired CIA operations officer contends there is “absolutely no reason on earth” to conclude the number at work in the U.S. is only three.
Hezbollah, which traces its roots to Lebanon in the 1980s, was declared a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) by the U.S. State Department in 1997.
Faddis calls the Iran-sponsored terrorist organization a “very large, very robust, very active [terrorist] organization.”
Seeking a group’s intentions and observing their activities begets an intelligence operation, Faddis explains. Not only do intelligence agencies have the responsibility of “[recognizing] the sophistication and scope of what Hezbollah is intending, [but] a local community can also play a role in unraveling any kind of intelligence operation.”
