Hezbollah find place in Bush's America

In the Forward, Marc Perelman interviews Senator Bob Graham and hears the Lebanese Party of God has made headway into the U.S.A:

The Bush administration has failed to act against a major Hezbollah infiltration of the United States, Senator Bob Graham told the Forward.

In an exclusive interview, Graham, a Florida Democrat and former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Lebanese Shiite militant organization, has more trained operatives in America than Al Qaeda does. In the midst of promoting a new book blasting the Bush administration for allegedly covering up the extent of Saudi Arabia's role in the September 11 attacks and for diverting to Iraq resources from the fight against radical Islamic terrorism, the senator said that at least several hundred Hezbollah operatives are now in the United States. The precise estimate, he said, is classified.

"Frankly, we don't really have a strategy to prevent trained operatives from entering the U.S.," said Graham, a third-term senator who will retire at the end of the year.

So let me ask you: Do you feel safer than you did three years ago?
