WASHINGTON: FBI Director Robert Mueller III said his bureau was keeping an eye on Hezbollah inside the United States.
“Hezbollah is a terrorist group and has proven itself over the years,” said Mueller. “Hezbollah has capabilities around the world, and we keep an eye on it inside the United States,” he added.
Mueller’s comments came during a discussion at the Council for Foreign Relations yesterday.
Presiding over the discussion was Terence Moran, Nightline anchor of ABC News. Terence asked Mueller to share information on whether the Lebanese group has had past activities in the US. Mueller responded: “Yes and no.”
