Who killed the Iranian nuclear scientist?

According to the BBC, Iranian media is saying that the US and Israel killed an Iranian nuclear scientist with a bomb stashed on a motorcycle in front of his house.

The AP, no doubt sourced from US intel, seems to emphasize that this nuclear scientist was tied to the reformist movement implying the Iranians got him. (although, if you read further, he seems pretty politically safe.)

So, at this point, who knows? ..but if it was Israel or the US, I sure hope they covered all their tracks.

Later: Two more points. 1) He was a nuclear professor, not everyday active in the program. 2) The Iranians are blaming an internal opposition group backed by the US and Israel.


  • And by "US" they probably mean "Blackwater operatives"

  • Maybe Blackwater, but in the past it's been the CIA liasing with the Iranian violent opposition.
