    They were sent surreptitiously into Iraq before the war and were in cities such as Baghdad, Fallujah and Qaim to give the impression that a rebellion was underway and to conduct light sabotage, according to the two defense sources and the three former and current intelligence officials.

    "They painted X's [for targeting] on buildings and things like that," said one former intelligence officer.


    Sounds good to me.
