Saddam's Spies

Documents seized from Iraq's intelligence ministry, and other government buildings in Iraq, have revealed a large scale spying operation carried out by Saddam Hussein on American soil.

At least a dozen spy cases are being brought by the Justice Department, a number not seen since the the Cold War.

The operation included "sleeper" agents who were told to blend in to American society until they received orders from the intelligence ministry in Baghdad.

Saddam's agents were not spying on the US, in the "traditional" James Bond sense, but on opposition groups; additionally the agents were used to try to influence US policy.
