Amiri: Double crossing double agent
Would they have us believe that this was the plan?
Double cross is a “deliberate collusion to lose.” Did Amiri deliberately go on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia to meet with the CIA? That would be the test of the first part of definition. The CIA would not be sitting in Saudi Arabia seeing if Iranians got off the planes, buses, or cars so that they could snatch one. They must have known what to catch.
Iranians get lonely while away. They spill what they know. They get post cards from home saying the government is going to kill the family members if he doesn’t get back there. Already he has put $5 million in a bank account.
However, somebody in the USA controls that account, right? He went home, but if his family were going to be losers before, what does that make him now?
The Iranians are playing him like a fiddle as they know he is a fiddle. When all are done fiddling, what will become of Amiri. Will he get a mail order PhD?
“The Iranian nuclear scientist who claims to have been abducted by the CIA was paid more than $5 million to provide intelligence on Iran's nuclear program, according to a published report.
The scientist, Shahram Amiri, returned to Iran early Thursday where he was given a hero's welcome after claiming he was abducted by U.S. agents and then offered $50 million to stay in the U.S.
The Washington Post reported in its online edition late Wednesday that Amiri worked for the CIA for more than a year before abruptly asking to return home this week. The Post said he was paid $5 million out of a secret program aimed at inducing scientists and others with information on Iran's nuclear program to defect.
The U.S. says he was a willing defector who changed his mind and decided to board a plane home from Washington.
Amiri is not obligated to return the money, the newspaper reported; however he may be unable to access the funds after breaking off "significant cooperation" with the U.S.
"Anything he got is now beyond his reach, thanks to the financial sanctions on Iran," a U.S. official told the Post. "He's gone, but his money's not. We have his information, and the Iranians have him."”
