Sleeper cells in Kuwait? :: Strategy Page

Quote:
October 18, 2006: 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).

Well, it could be a fair report until I read that THE IRANIAN BOSSES part, which sounds very childish.

"The Iranian agents...were often trained in Iran."
Do tell. Suppose the Lebanese Training Centre was too busy at this time of year.

"Kuwait fears...it may be a large one (several thousand members)"
That's not a sleeper cell, it's a slumber party. Honestly - several thousand members? How "secret" is that? They probably need their own parking spaces.

PR exercise to shape world opinion before starting attacks on Iran?

Or is it the beginning of Shia - Sunni tension in Kuwait too after Iraq?

Someting is fishy here.
