MEXICO CITY, Mexico (CNN) -- The United States may have been behind the killing of Neda Agha-Soltan, the 26-year-old Iranian woman whose fatal videotaped shooting Saturday made her a symbol of opposition to the June 12 presidential election results, the country's ambassador to Mexico said Thursday.
"This death of Neda is very suspicious," Ambassador Mohammad Hassan Ghadiri said. "My question is, how is it that this Miss Neda is shot from behind, got shot in front of several cameras, and is shot in an area where no significant demonstration was behind held?"
He suggested that the CIA or another intelligence service may have been responsible.
"Well, if the CIA wants to kill some people and attribute that to the government elements, then choosing women is an appropriate choice, because the death of a woman draws more sympathy," Ghadiri said.
In response, CIA spokesman George Little said, "Any suggestion that the CIA was responsible for the death of this young woman is wrong, absurd and offensive."
Though the video appeared to show that she had been shot in the chest, Ghadiri said that the bullet was found in her head and that it was not of a type used in Iran.
"These are the methods that terrorists, the CIA and spy agencies employ," he said. "Naturally, they would like to see blood spilled in these demonstrations, so that they can use it against the Islamic Republic of Iran. This is of the common methods that the CIA employs in various countries."

If it weren't so sad, the tortured blaming of anyone but themselves by the islamic regime would be funny.
BTW even more weird is the DU thread on this. The DUmmies of course agree that the CIA could be involved with this. Sheesh.
If you can endure the derangement:
Do these Mad-Mo jackarses have any idea just how much of a laughingstock they are?
It’s nice to know that the DUmmies and the Iranian mullahs still consider the CIA as being a threat. Leon must be proud.
To try to get 100% of the average populace to believe in a single fact 100% is an impossibility. Thus thugs like this Iranian Mouthpiece will get an audience and credulous believers because the myth suits their prejudices.
