Door-to-door salesmen claiming to be Israeli art students have been asking a few too many questions about a NSA (National Security Agency) data center in Utah, according to a local ABC news report last week.

A woman who bought a painting from one of the mystery salesmen was asked by ABC if he looked like a Mossad spy. The woman laughed said that he just looked poor and thirsty.

According to ABC, a Saratoga Springs police officer tracked down some of the salesmen and asked one, "If you're actually an artist, why don't you draw something?" The officer described the resulting drawing as "on par with what my kindergartner could have done."

Apparently, even local Morman church bulletins are warning Highland women that, "These are not art students and federal law enforcement groups are actually investigating their ties to organized crime and terrorist groups." ABC reported that the bulletin continued, "Part of their mission here is to gain information on the new NSA installation."

Although the true identity or objectives of the "Israeli art students" were unknown, they have gotten the attention of Utah.
