Just for comparison...
Prior to, and during OIF, the US contacted multiple sources within the Iraq government; soldiers, politicians, generals etc... in order to convince
them to work for us. The US had no, at least to my knowledge, "covert agents" spying among the Iraqi officials, all were hired locals. Anyway, all
of these "contacts" did not even come close to numbering 100, that would have made our job too easy. Most of the information the US got during the
first days of the war about Saddam's whereabouts come from two sources (codenamed Rockstar) which disappeared shortly after the war started.
