Mossad Agents Assassinated The Iranian Scientist Last Week — Sunday Times
Business Insider ^ | 01/17/2012 | Robert Johnson

FARS photo claiming to show Roshan and his son on January 11There was no doubt that Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan was assasinated last week in Iran as he made his way to work at an uranium enrichment facility — the only question that remained was who did it.

The Sunday Times reports they have a Mossad source who says it was his group that pulled off the bombing, and it was a "precursor to a military strike" (via Ha'aretz).

The idea being that should Iran's nuclear facilities be bombed, it will be all the more difficult for them to rebuild without scientists to staff them.

The source says the hit was coordinated months in advance, requiring teams on the ground to monitor Roshan, learn his schedule, and decide where best to eliminate him.

From Ha'aretz:

According to the Sunday Times, Roshan, 32, was monitored from a makeshift control room in a safe house nearby as he was preparing to leave for work. Israeli agents were also watching the entrance to Iranian intelligence headquarters in the city center, when they noticed a number of cars and people running, followed by police rushing into the nearby streets. Another agent monitoring radio traffic between the Tehran police and security forces confirmed unusual activity, said the paper.

For what it’s worth — BOTH British and US officials DENIED taking part in it.

That’s because the Brits and the Feds are in love with the Muzzies.

It’s one or the other. Either Israel killed the guy or Iran killed the guy so they can blame Israel.

Persians love conspiracies and the more complex the better.
I would not be surprised if the assassin was an Iranian in the pay of the Revolutionary Guard.

The attack itself was like something out of a James Bond movie. A motorcyclist slapping a magnetic bomb to the scientist's vehicle and speeding away before the explosion.

I guess, regardless of who carried out the attack, this sends a powerful message to other would-be nuclear scientists who would work with terrorists to develop nuclear bombs. Can't say I disapprove.

The only thing I fear is we might have copycat attacks on OUR scientists and engineers here in the USA... from their side.

The Sunday Times reports they have a Mossad source who says..

Just last night I was drinking with my buddies from the Mossad, FSB and CIA and they all said the same thing. Then my girlfriend from SEAL Team Six walked in and told them they were all liars, that she had personally blown the nuke scientist away.

(just in case it's needed - (/sarc))

Is there any word on where Obama was? Perhaps he went Rambo on us again, like the weekend he personally took out Osama bin Laden.

My girlfriend said Obama drove her motorcycle when she planted the bomb.

No matter how hard I try, I can't see a Mossad person blabbing any secret info to the Sunday Times.

If they were Mossad, they would know exactly what could happen to him if the Times guy ratted him out.

Face down in the hash browns, double tapped in the head, nah, they ain't talking.

Um... So what?

Stop threatening to destroy Israel and maybe they will stop killing those making the toys you want to use to kill them...

Seems an easy enough calculus for even those determined to keep their societies as close to the 7th Century as possible.

"Mossad Agents Assassinated The Iranian Scientist Last Week — Sunday Times"
(Sunday Times in the UK, that is, Britain)

UK Has A History of Foreign Policy 'Vandalism' Against Israel
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2834162/posts

Which has become obvious over time with the nature of pronouncements from UK publications about Israel, Iran, etc.
