A report by NBC claims Israel's Mossad is backing an Iranian terror group in an assassination campaign against Iranian nuclear assets.
US officials say deadly attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists are being carried out by an Iranian dissident armed, funded and trained by the Mossad, an NBC report claims.
It is widely believed the The Peoples Mujahedin of Iran (MEK) has killed five Iranian nuclear scientists since 2007, and may have destroyed a missile research and development site.
The attacks have been conducted in a dramatic fashion,with motorcycle-borne assailants often attaching small magnetic bombs to the exterior of the victims cars.
The group has also been accused of arson attacks on several research laboratories. US officials who spoke to NBC anonymously said the Obama administration is aware of the assassination campaign but has no direct involvement.
Mohammad Javad Larijani, a senior aide to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, told NBC that the Mossad and MEK have a close working relationship.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.

It’s clear that to the 0bama0 regime, the Joooooz are the terrorists and the genocidal Iranian Mullahs are the freedom fighters.
Also in the Jerusalem Post today-
‘Israel is aiding terror group to kill Iran’s scientists’
Terrorism seeks to influence opinion and politics through terrorizing a populace.
These guys are NOT trying to terrorize the Iranian populace - they are trying to bring down the Mullah regime.
They are revolutionaries and assassins - but not terrorists.
Crikey, at least someone is doing something right.
The question is why aren’t we?
Oh wait, we’ve got a feckless administration installed,
have to change that before we can start getting our
own back. The Iranians know and say that they are
at war with us, why aren’t we at war with them???
Yess, I know, the Obama administration...
Hooray for Israel!
Whose side is NBC on? Oh wait...
-Six Whiskey Tango
believe half of the news that comes with this president..
can't wait to see him get on plane to go home come Jan. 2013, where ever he calls home...
“All is fair in love & war”.. only, in this case, “there is no love lost”...
>>>”US officials who spoke to NBC anonymously said the Obama administration is aware of the assassination campaign but has no direct involvement.”<<<
Funny: “has no (direct) involvement” <— so, is Obama administration (indirectly) involved ??
Why is the Obama administration trying to promote open conflict between Israel and Iran?
"Wag The Dog"!
It is a common method by intelligence agencies to use such groups, ie jundallah.
A bit of an irony, isn’t it?
The Iranians are complaining that their people are getting killed by bombs and assassins.
Mossad...doing the job the CIA doesn’t want to do!!!
“The Iranians know and say that they are
at war with us, why arent we at war with them???
Yess, I know, the Obama administration...”
The Iranians were manufacturing and exporting IEDs that maimed or killed our U.S. servicemen in Iraq. Why did Bush do nothing to stop this?
When a policy is bad, it must be opposed, no matter who does it. Don’t call me a Bush hater. I voted for him twice.
What prior actions did they take that terrorized the populace they are trying to win over and free from the Mullahs?
um, because they believe in the Mahdi, that's why.
Well, now. Obama really hasn’t left Israel with many options, has he?
Any group that targeted and killed Americans in 70’s is a terrorist group. No different than terrorist that kill Americans in Iraq.
