So a top Iranian nuclear physicist has died under “mysterious circumstances.” Nothing surprising there. It is rare that anyone of importance in Iran dies under normal circumstances. If he was indeed assassinated, then the Mossad explanation is possible, even probable. But there’s been a lot of talk in Iran of late about “spies” and “traitors” providing secret information to Iran’s enemies about the nuclear program, and he may have been killed by the regime and an “assassination” announced.
Not that it matters, in all probability, since nuclear programs rarely if ever depend on a sole individual. My guess is that the regime killed him and they blamed it on the Jews.
I will again be traveling for the next two days, and will resume blogging Tues afternoon, East Coast time.
