"Iran Executes Nuclear Scientist Who Was Convicted of Spying"

Iran Executes Nuclear Scientist Who Was Convicted of Spying.
Shahram Amiri defected to the U.S. at the height of Western efforts to thwart Iran’s nuclear program. When he returned in 2010, he was welcomed with flowers by government leaders and even went on the Iranian talk-show circuit. Then he mysteriously disappeared. 
He was hanged the same week that Tehran executed a group of militants, a year after Iran agreed to a landmark accord to limit uranium enrichment in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. 
Amiri first vanished in 2009 while on a religious pilgrimage to Muslim holy sites in Saudi Arabia. A year later, he reappeared in a series of contradictory online videos filmed in the U.S. He then walked into the Iranian-interests section at the Pakistani Embassy in Washington and demanded to be sent home. 
In interviews, he described being kidnapped and held against his will by Saudi and American spies. U.S. officials said he was to receive millions of dollars for his help in understanding Iran’s nuclear program.
Then there’s this:
Hillary Clinton used her private email server to discuss details of the Iranian nuclear scientist who has executed for giving information to the CIA. 
Shahram Amiri, who was hanged on Sunday for ‘revealing secrets to the enemy’, was in the US and allegedly informing on Tehran’s extensive nuclear program during the Democrat’s controversial reign as Secretary of State. 
At the time she stressed researcher had been there of his ‘own free will’ and was described as ‘our friend’ in correspondences. 
But he maintained he had been kidnapped by intelligence agents.
Emails sent by Clinton’s advisers point to the scandal involving Amiri – suggesting it was a ‘diplomatic, psychological issue’, but not a ‘legal one’. 

One aide also warned he would lead to ‘problematic news stories’.

Not anymore...

There are probably a lot more people dead because of her and Grassy Knoll (if you want to see how a good intel analyst can put bits and pieces together, read about how Joe Rochefort figured out how the Nips were going to hit Midway).

Yo know, now that you mention yoga...

Are people with Hillary's medical condition even allowed to do yoga?

This yoga business might be her biggest whopper... because I suppose it's one of those things that just goes unchallenged, on the theory that if you challenge it, you are challenging a woman.

Amartel said...

She calls it yoga but really she's lying on the floor because she's fallen and can't get up.

Amartel said...

"Yoga" means lying.
It's dog whistle code to the other fat lazy broads.

There is one Hillary email with the name Shahram Amiri here.

there are several more with the name Amiri from a person named Rina Amiri .

There are none in DNC emails.

It there only that one?

Country index: Iran

"our friend" Over 800 documents with title sub classified "military" Mostly about identifying friend or foe.

Control f "nuclear" highlight a few unrelated emails.

Most frustrating.

I think they found 1 email that mentions the guy's name and his own psychological difficulty with loyalty to his country, to Islam, to humanity, to science is evident and somehow supposed to be damaging to DNC generally and to Hillary specifically.

Reading through these, and imagining Hillary at the center of this flow of dreadful information one begins to form pity thinking, "Jesus Christ, this her work flow? "

I'd be quite insane by now dealing with just a fraction of all this intense crap flying in from all angles. ALL DAY LONG. No sane person will want this for themselves. You must be insane already to approach it.

It is not the slightest bit fun.

Wait for it, cause you know this is coming... Hillary's emails didn't kill the spy. The GOP's witch hunt that exposed the emails did. No follow up questions about how easy it was for the "Russians" (whoever the Dems think will make a good whipping boy) to hack the DNC email server, so it was likely the same people hacked Hillary's server. The media will just accept the simple premise that the emails wouldn't have been available to anyone if those meddling kids in the GOP didn't get in the way.

Amartel said...

Um, wait, what? The GOP exposed the emails? Really? I cannot believe anyone, even the desperate Dems, is that stupid. The GOP is certainly taking advantage - as they should - that the facts have come out about Clinton's leaky server but exposing the emails?

AprilApple said...

If her private server led to the guys death - boom she should be required to exit stage left.

I know - wishful thinking.

Hillary just went out and said she was exonerated. You have Sanders supporting Hillary despite emails showing the entire DNC staff working against his primary challenge. You really don't think MSNBC won't float "it's the GOP's fault" to cover for Hillary's violation of the law leading to the death of this guy? Heck, we had journalist calling for a mother, who lost her son in Benghazi, to be stoned to death. They are that stupid. They are that desperate.
