Bhalla says that a Lebanese military source (with level B reliability) claimed there were 20 Hezbollah operatives on the plane transporting explosives to deliver to Hezbollah sleeper cells in Uganda and Kenya. Another source, called a "Hezbollah media source," (who Bhalla later comments is of course highly prone to disinfo and his information should be regarded as suspect)
