A former engineer for a U.S. defense contractor has been arrested and accused of trying to ship thousands of pages of documents, blueprints, technical manuals, and diagrams of military aircraft engines to Iran.
The U.S. Attorney's office for Connecticut said Mozaffar Khazaee, 59, was arrested at Newark Liberty International Airport Thursday after arriving from Indianapolis and before attempting to board a flight to Frankfurt, Germany en route to Tehran. He is charged with transporting, transmitting and transferring in interstate or foreign commerce goods obtained by theft, conversion or fraud, and faces as long as 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

Political correctness is a disease of the mind! No way should anyone with any ties to any other country be working with anything to do with military intelligence, equipment, or have anythign to do with our government. ESPECIALLY a middle-eastern probably muslim.
another son of Obama...?????
Hey, the NSA was busy reading my aunt’s recipe for banana pudding. They don’t have time for this piddly stuff.
Mozaffar Khazaee...............Must be Amish.................
Well, to be fair to the NSA, he was moving these documents in paper form. NSA has gone paperless.
10 years in prison? He’s a U.S. citizen. How about charges of treason and hang the SOB until dead!?!
So we have engineers working here from a country that has vowed to wipe us off the face of the earth, and who belong to an ideology that vows to kill Christians and Jews.
Who has their head up their a$$?
BTW, anybody with that face should be expelled as a danger to horses.
Why did Fast and Furious come to mind?? Oh, certainly just my imagination....
There is alot of Islamic organizations just west of the Indy airport...right in Plainsville, IN....I wonder if this guy met with a handler there before leaving???
The NSA screwed up.. they were supposed to insure the guy’s safe passage to Iran. The rogue agents who busted him are in for a rough time.
I remember the good old days when a “NOFORN” classification actually had some teeth and precluded ANY flavor of foreigner from having access to the information.
Those high-paying Muslim students that our universities can’t get enough of are paid for by Muslim governments, as Obama was. Just saying’......
This one looks Iranian.
Anybody seen Sandy Berger? Are we really sure it wasn't him using a disguise?
Hey, he just was using the classified aircraft data as packaging wrap for his brother’s gifts. I’m sure WITHHOLDERS Civil rights division will be all over this.
I used to work there many years ago. Amazing place. Too bad about the spy.
Dude, stop cutting in on Kerry’s action
This guy is a naturalized US citizen in 1991 per the story.
so you’re telling me a foreign born engineer from a hostile nation got into classified work and proceeded to funnel tech back to enemy states?
long gone, my FRiend. I’ve been in some places whose members only list could easily include this guys name. I was stunned back then... was told I was being paranoid (is it bad to be that kind of paranoid in those areas??)
at this point, I feel it’s all lost... just waiting for the fat lady to take the stage
Damn. Some out of loop federal agent just blew Obama’s secret peace deal with Iran.
Those crazy Amish!!
