    Talking Top Iranian Nuke Scientist Assassinated by MOSSAD

    'assassinated by Mossad'
    U.S. intelligence company says Israel
    making good on threat to stop bomb

    The mysterious death last month of a top Iranian nuclear physicist involved with the Islamic Republic's current effort to enrich uranium was the work of Mossad, the Israeli security service, a leading U.S. intelligence company claims.

    The death of Ardeshir Hassanpour, 44, a nuclear scientist, was not announced until Jan. 21, six days after his death, according to Radio Farda. The official cause of death was reported as "gas poisoning," but Iranian authorities did not disclose how or where Hassanpour was poisoned. The announcement, reports said, came at a conference on nuclear safety.

    Hassanpour claimed Iran's most prestigious military-research prize in 2004 and received the top award at an international science event in Iran in 2006.

    According to the London Times, Stratfor, a U.S. security company, reported on Friday that its sources within Israel identified Hassanpour as a Mossad target and said "very strong intelligence" suggested the security service had assassinated the scientist.

    As WND reported, Israel has warned Tehran it would not be permitted to threaten the Jewish state with annihilation.

    Hassanpour worked at the Isfahan plant that produces uranium-hexafluoride gas, a raw material for the enrichment of uranium at the Natanz facility which has become the focus of concerns over Iran's development of nuclear weapons.

    There is precedent for Mossad using assassination to interfere with efforts of its neighbors to acquire nuclear weapons.

    It is believed by intelligence experts that three top scientists in Iraq's nuclear program were killed by Mossad before Israel launched the successful 1981 air strike that crippled the Osirak nuclear reactor.

    In 1980, Yahya al-Meshad was found stabbed and bludgeoned to death in his Paris hotel room after arriving in France to test fuel for the reactor. Over the next several months, two other Iraqi nuclear scientists died after being poisoned.

    Before everybody goes & blames Mossad, the clown worked with radioactive gases! He could have died from his own stupidity & guess who catches the blame.

    He may even have been killed by his own people for something. We may never know what really happened................

    On the bright side, maybe it will delay the Iranians for a while.

    Who is blaming Mossad.....I am giving them positive credit for it. Even if they didn't do it, they should take credit for it. That kind of reputation, to quote MasterCard, is priceless.

    I dont believe it.

    If the MOSSAD had killed that guy, they would have been the LAST ones to recieve the blame for it, because when they do things its mostly invisible.

    The fact that they are takling "credit" for it usually means that they didnt do it. I think MI6 did it and are shifting the blame to them...as usual.

    Why don't they just do what they did last time they built a reactor and started to enrich the stuff, it only took them what 20 years to build another one.

    I figure that is exactly what will happen if it gets that far.

    AW, shucks!!!!! Oh well. Next!
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    I remember reading an article about it. It's a logistical nightmare for them to bomb their current facilities. The range is rather far and would require a couple inflight refuelings if the article was correct.

    It could have been an accident. Uranium Hexaflouride is toxic and so corrosive that the US used plating from the platinum metals on centifuges when enriching uranium.

    Of course, arranging an accident in such a facility wouldn't be too hard, either.
