Their top spy is in the Oval Office (when he isn’t boondoggling or vacationing).
Such regimes use quantity in such efforts, because they have minimal quality at hand. So from those 30,000, subtract the number that are so incompetent they are soon discovered by professional counterintelligence agencies.
This leaves a core of perhaps a few hundred, many of whom stay in country and try and direct from afar.
In Iran’s case, they have all sorts of ongoing operations around the world, most of which have been compromised, so present no major threat.

SNIPPET: “An Argentine prosecutor has accused Iran of trying to infiltrate countries in Latin America to sponsor and carry out “terrorist activities”.
Alberto Nisman said Iran was attempting to set up intelligence-gathering stations in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and other countries in the region.
Mr Nisman is investigating a bomb attack that killed 85 people in a Jewish centre in Buenos Aires in 1994.”
SNIPPET: “”I legally accuse Iran of infiltrating several South American countries to install intelligence stations - in other words espionage bases - destined to commit, encourage and sponsor terror attacks like the one that took place against Amia,” Mr Nisman was quoted as saying, referring to the Jewish centre bombed nearly 20 years ago.
He said the countries targeted included Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, and Surinam.
And he claimed that Mohsen Rabbani - the Iranian former cultural attache in Buenos Aires who Argentina blames for the Amia attack - was co-ordinating the alleged infiltration operation.”
