The Russian sleeper agents

Coyote Blog notes that the recent arrest of Russian sleeper agents lends credibility to the old Charles Bronson/Lee Remick movie "Telefon" and the like.

A lot of people wonder what purpose the Russians could have to be establishing sleeper cells at this late date. I commented:

The Russians inherited a whole bureaucracy devoted to running sleeper agents. You can’t expect all those bureaucrats to stop what they were doing and get real jobs.
I think this really is a factor. Not that the FBI shouldn't be rounding up these S.O.B.s. Even if they have no practical effect, it's the principle of the thing.

BTW, the above link has the YouTube video of the "Telefon" trailer embedded. It sucks. I could cut a better trailer. It would have more Lee Remick, to start with.
