US denies killing Iran nuclear scientist with magnetic bomb
MSNBC ^ | 1/11/2012

Posted on 01/11/2012 10:52:59 AM PST by Former Fetus

Updated at 1:15 p.m. ET: The Obama administration is denying any role in the killing of an Iranian university professor working at a key nuclear facility. White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said the U.S. "had absolutely nothing to do" with Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan's death and the U.S. condemns "all acts of violence, including acts of violence like what is being reported today."

Published at 9:46 am ET: Two assailants on a motorcycle attached a magnetic bomb to the car of an Iranian university professor working at a key nuclear facility, killing him and wounding two people on Wednesday, a semiofficial news agency reported.

The attack in Tehran bore a strong resemblance to earlier killings of scientists working on the Iranian nuclear program.

I doubt we have the guts to do that... but Israel does. Regardless, I'm glad someone is doing something.

A damn fine piece of work if done by the US or Israel.

And now I wish that I owned an all aluminum car dealership in Teheran.

Because our bombs are always attached with duct tape or gorilla glue. Totally different than a magnetic bomb.

As if our country would ever say yeah we did that....

The only time we ever admit something like this is when the person is a public enemy and everyone knows it. Stuff like this we will never admit.

We now know that the magnetic bomb was planted by US agents due to the fact that they were required by US government regulations to also place this sticker on the vehicle.

Looks to me like we are seeing Israeli-operatives doing a bit of mission impossible type assignments. Or even pro-west Iranians. And yes there are a sizable number of pro-west Iranians left in that country.

I suppose if we had hit him with a drone it would not have been a violent act.

Not likely done by the US. If anything Hussein would be attaching top secret plans to the guy’s windshield.

Whether we did it or not, we should claim credit, “Sauce for the gander, how does it feel? Now, stop your nuclear weapons program, or get more the the same.”
