Oleg Gordievsky, one of the Cold War's most famous defectors, says Russia may have as many as 50 deep-cover couples spying inside the United States.
Gordievsky, a former deputy head of the KGB in London who defected in 1985, said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev would know the number of illegal operatives in each target country.
The 71-year-old ex-double agent said that, based on his experience in Russian intelligence, he estimates that Moscow likely has 40 to 50 couples operating under cover in the US.
"For the KGB, there's usually 40 to 50 couples, all illegal," said Gordievsky, who defected to Britain after supplying information during the Cold War to the U.K.'s MI6 overseas spy agency.
Gordievsky said he spent nine years working in the KGB directorate in charge of illegal spy teams. "The president will know the number, and in each country how many - but not their names," Gordievsky said.
The FBI announced Monday the arrests of 10 alleged deep cover Russian agents after tracking the suspects for years. They are accused of attempting to infiltrate US policymaking circles while posing as ordinary citizens.

Well they’re scrambling now.
Give ‘em amnesty!
If you counted every single “sleeper”...to include the university students faking status and collecting...from all the countries...including China, France, Cuba, etc...it’s probably over forty thousand. Just my humble opinion.
I think this story will make a great script for a movie though...with Sigourney Weaver of course as the “sleeper”....deployed to Bama...and forced to act as a local while collecting on the heartland.
This whole thing sounds like a big farce...another Obama sidetrack.
“Give em amnesty!”
HAHA ! A good one
50 illegals sounds infintesimal to me....
I haven’t read everything on this, but can anybody tell me what information the hottie spy was gathering?
Let’s see ....... there’s at least five in the White House ...... and six in the Senate ...... and nine in the House.
Yep, there’s twenty.
Given that we have a White House that is full of communist; inlcuding our President; hard to figure why they are in ‘deep cover’.
I can remember his name, but he appeared to have gray hair, so he's not a youngster.
Done. Over 30 years ago...
Telefon is a 1977 spy film, starring Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence and Lee Remick, and was directed by noted action-film director Don Siegel. The film is based on a 1975 novel about mind control by Walter Wager. C During the Cold War of the 1950s, the Soviet Union planted a number of long-term, deep-cover sleeper agents all over the United States, spies so thoroughly brainwashed that even they didn't know they were agents; they could only be activated by a special code phrase (a line from Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" followed by their real given names). Their mission was to sabotage crucial parts of the civil and military infrastructure as a precursor to a possible US/USSR active conflict or war.
Over twenty years pass, and the Cold War gradually gives way to détente. Nikolai Dalchimsky (Donald Pleasence), a rogue KGB officer, defects to America, taking with him the Telefon Book, which contains the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all the agents. He starts activating them one by one. American counterintelligence is thrown into confusion when seemingly-ordinary citizens start blowing up what are, in some cases, long-abandoned facilities and commit suicide right afterwards.
I just had a thought.... can you imagine how EASY it would have been for any illegal agent of any foreign country to have compromised AL GORE?
The good news is that only half of them are Obama czars.
Yeah, but if we arrest all of the Soviet era deep cover agents in the US, our university system will be paralyzed.
“The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep. Remember Dmitri. Miles to go before I sleep. Your political science class begins in an hour.”
great movie!!!!! Lee Remick was great!
