It appears the stakes have been raised:
A PRIZE-WINNING Iranian nuclear scientist has died in mysterious circumstances, according to Radio Farda, which is funded by the US State Department and broadcasts to Iran.
An intelligence source suggested that Ardeshire Hassanpour, 44, a nuclear physicist, had been assassinated by Mossad, the Israeli security service.
This isn’t too surprising. If Israel and the U.S. can achieve its goal of scuttling Iran’s nuclear program without triggering what could become a regional (nuclear) war, then why not? I look for other bits of OSI (open source intelligence) like this in the next few weeks.
