CIA, MI6 Behind Iranian Nuclear Scientist’s Death

Iran protestThat’s what Iran’s government says, anyway, and sadly the protestations otherwise by American and British governments just don’t seem convincing. From the Jerusalem Post:

Iran protested the United States and United Kingdom for their roles in the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Wednesday, implicating the two nations in the attack, the official Iranian Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported Saturday.

Iran sent a letter to the Swiss embassy in Tehran – the only official diplomatic channel between Iran and the United States in Tehran – saying that CIA-led operations in the Islamic Republic are known, and blaming the US for supporting “terrorist groups against Iran.”

Tehran also sent a letter to the British Foreign Ministry, claiming British intelligence operations aided in the killing of the 32-year-old Roshan in a car bomb.

The letter cited a quote by Foreign Intelligence Service Head (MI6) John Sawers, who said that the UK was beginning intelligence operations against Iran, according to IRNA.

Iran demanded a response from both governments.

The Islamic Republic has blamed the violent death of Roshan on the CIA, Israel and now MI6. US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton summarily denied the charges and Israeli President Shimon Peres said that Israel had no role in the attack, to the best of his knowledge…

      So that just leaves MI6.

      Then again… the article is a good way for Mossad to dodge involvement.

    Funny — the CIA and others are saying it’s Mossad posing as CIA agents to recruit Pakistani Jundallah for those missions, and they’re not even trying that hard to hide it. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/01/13/false_flag

    Two possible scenarios :  Sounds like he didn’t want to ‘play ball’ with somebody. As a chemistry expert he could have been a genius that discovered something that could have shifted the balance of power in a global arms race.  I am willing to bet that his personal notebooks and studies all mysteriously disappear as well.   Or as head of a uranium facility he did not want to sell ( or donate I should say) some uranium to the world’s ‘heavy hitters’.

    Does it really matter which “intelligence” agency did it?
    It’s kinda like, “Who cut the cheese?”

    What’s Iran gonna do about it anyway?
    Will an outraged rest of the world come to their rescue?
    They might as well bend over and take it like the rest of us.
    Besides, their scumbag government isn’t any better than the other scumbag governments.

    Now if only all the “intelligence” agencies would just wipe each other out
    the whirled would be a better place
    for a couple of minutes.
