The FBI broke up a ring that tried to smuggle Hizballah operatives into the U.S.
In testimony Tuesday to Congress, FBI director Robert Mueller said there “was an occasion in which Hizballah operatives were assisting others with some association with Hizballah in coming to the United States.”
“That was an organization that we dismantled and identified those persons who had been smuggled in. And they have been addressed as well.”
Mueller said that the ring had attempted to smuggle the operatives into the U.S. from Mexico.
