Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright is warning that there are ‘unquestionably’ Iranian ‘sleeper cells’ currently operating in the US and that if they are ever activated by the Ayatollah their actions would be ‘tantamount to a new 9/11.’ As Fox News reports:
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday, Wright said that there are “unquestionably” sleeper cells operated and directed by the Iranian regime in the U.S…
“The CIA and the FBI have long had a pulse on this threat…So we know that the risk is there,” he said. “The other deep concern is that we have to be right 100 percent of the time to mitigate these individuals [and] find this threat. And, unfortunately, we’re not going to be able to do that every time.”
Wright said that if Iran ever does hit back inside the U.S., it would be tantamount to “a new 9/11.”
That said, he believes it’s important for Americans to understand that the president didn’t just deter Iranian acts of terror by killing Iranian Quds force leader Gen. Qassem Soleimani — he “knocked them out.”
Although the regime has been cowed by Trump’s actions for now, it’s not impossible that the sleeper cells are merely waiting, and biding their time, in the hopes that a Democrat President may be elected in 2020, thus opening the door for a campaign of terror against American civilians.
