Sämtliche Medien berichteten heute über diese ABC-Exklusivmeldung:
An award-winning Iranian nuclear scientist, who disappeared last year under mysterious circumstances, has defected to the CIA and been resettled in the United States, according to people briefed on the operation by intelligence officials. The officials were said to have termed the defection of the scientist, Shahram Amiri, „an intelligence coup“ in the continuing CIA operation to spy on and undermine Iran’s nuclear program.
Iran is poised to begin producing nuclear weapons after its uranium program expansion in 2009, even though it has had problems with thousands of its centrifuges, according to a newly released CIA report. „Iran continues to develop a range of capabilities that could be applied to producing nuclear weapons, if a decision is made to do so,“ the annual report to Congress states.
