ABC: Iran Nuclear Scientist Defects to U.S.
Posted 3/30/10
Now if this is even remotely true, why the hell would a news agency report on this? One would think they would have some sense that this could endanger him and undermine all the work done to keep this under wraps, as well as possibly shine light on some other intelligence gathering.




An award-winning Iranian nuclear scientist, who disappeared last year under mysterious circumstances, has defected to the CIA and been resettled in the United States, according to people briefed on the operation by intelligence officials.

Amiri, a nuclear physicist in his early 30s, went missing last June three days after arriving in Saudi Arabia on a pilgrimage, according to the Iranian government. He worked at Tehran's Malek Ashtar University, which is closely connected to Iran's Revolutionary Guard, according to the Associated Press.

I wouldn't blame the guy for not wanting anymore blood on his hands.

I don't get if you're posting the topic on the subject or the fact that you think it might be fake. Either way...

xD You posted it too man, as well as his likeness. Its all good though, I doubt Iranian government hit men are trolling the forums of crunchyroll.

well he better decent protection from the police or agents because it is most likely that he will be killed.

They released this name after a year. Endangering isn't even the question now... the Iranians probably found out about it anyway and the government decided it was time to come clean to the public. He went missing in Iran last June. Last June. It's not like the CIA stole him 3 days ago and they're frantically searching for him right now.

This is a set up.....I can just smell it.

Whatever the actual circumstances behind the story and media acquisition of it are, I do hope that you are right and all arrangements in regard to the safety of this man and those close to him were made prior to the release of this information. I would like to say that I trust reporters and news agencies to make sure that this is the case before green lighting the story, but quite frankly I don't so all we can really do is hope for the best.
