Spies in our midst

Interesting article from my local paper.

2 Orange County men were actually spies for Iran. Short story they were spying on Pro Israel and Jewish concerns as well as ex pat Iranians not friendly to the Islamic regime that currently runs Iran.
https://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-...113-story.html

A little freaky.

These two were textbook spies. An American-Iranian born in USA, moved to Iran. He was certainly recruited for that very reason. Then he finds an Iranian born American immigrant. A restauranteur who presumably knows a few people. Like right out of a movie.

Re: Spies in our midst

A couple of years ago a guy who lived on the street behind us was arrested on suspicion of being an agent for Al-Qaida. Fun times with the FBI and all levels of law enforcement being all over the area for a couple of weeks. At least our neighborhood was really safe for a while.

No, it's his neighbor who flies the Palestinian flag.

Re: Spies in our midst

I mentioned before about how a bit after Trump was made POTUS and during a lot of the Russian scandal stuff, a young couple who were immigrants fresh from Russia moved into the apt next to us. Really nice, very little English, very little furniture, and she was pregnant. probably more a immigration smuggling thing than a Spy thing but who knows.
