Who’s Killing Iran’s Nuclear Scientists?

Is it the CIA, MI6, Mossad, Iran itself? Who knows? It really doesn’t matter, as long as they keep turning up dead it’s all good.

Bomb Attack Killed Distinguished Iranian University Professor

Two separate terrorist attacks on Iranian professors in Tehran today killed a distinguished university professor and injured another academician, IRNA reported.

Professor Majid Shahriari lost his life after unknown assailants driving a motorcycle attacked his car when he was on his way to Shahid Beheshti University accompanied by his wife who is in good condition at a nearby hospital.

Another attack directed against professor Fereydoun Abbasi also occurred at about the same time by unknown assailants. Abbasi received some injuries after the attack but he is in stable condition.

Today’s incidents resemble a similar attack on Iranian nuclear scientist Masoud Alimohamadi last January in front of his home. He was killed by a booby-trapped motorcycle parked near place of resident.

If you’re an Iranian nuclear scientist, you’ve got to be thinking long and hard about your safety right about now and possibly even defecting to the West. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if these Iranian scientists have been contacted by Western intelligence services and given the choice, work for us or else.

Did The CIA Get Punked By Iran?

Something’s seriously wrong with this picture.

Intrigue, But Few Facts, Surround Iranian Scientist

The case of Iranian nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri is what counter-intelligence officers like to call a “wilderness of mirrors.”

Facts are slim.

Depending on which version you read – and there are multiple ones – Amiri was kidnapped by U.S. intelligence agents a year ago while on pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, defected to the United States of his own free will, or simply decided to disappear for a while. The confusion was heightened when three different videos surfaced, all featuring a man who appeared to be Amiri, making different claim: that he had been kidnapped, that he was living freely in Arizona, and that he had escaped from U.S. custody.

The mystery deepened Tuesday when he suddenly appeared at the Iranian Interests Section of the Pakistan Embassy, saying that he wanted to go home. Iranian media say he was “handed over” to the Interests Section by U.S. officials.

For its part, U.S. officials say he was not kidnapped, not held against his will, not tortured, was living here freely, and has freely chosen to return to Iran,

So how did he get here? What was he doing here? Good questions, but ones U.S. officials are not answering.

Some reports say he defected and was giving the U.S. valuable information about Iran’s nuclear program. But some former intelligence officers say he might have been a false defector.

It has happened before.

Okay, let’s assume that Shahram Amiri is in the process of voluntarilly making his way back to Iran. First of all, if we was a defector, he’d be insane to want to return to Iran. Second, if he was abducted by the CIA and interrogated for a year before he “escaped”, would it be a smart idea to return to Iran? Why would they believe his story? Surely, at a minimum, he’d be subject to some very harsh interrogation, much harsher than any interrogation practiced by the CIA, as the Iranian intelligence agencies attempted to determine, to their satisfaction, whether he was abducted or whether he defected. The fact that the U.S. is insisting that Amiri is free to leave the United States at any time certainly doesn’t help bolster his abduction story.

/the only scenario that makes a whole lot of sense, at least to me, is that Shahram Amiri is a double agent/false defector and he knows that returning to Iran will earn him a hero’s welcome rather than probable torture or death
