re­port: sci­en­tist gave in­tel­li­gence on CIA

Austin American-Statesman - - THURSDAY BRIEFING -

TEHRAN — Iran fired a new salvo in what is be­com­ing a pro­pa­ganda war over the de­fec­tion and later re­turn of an Ira­nian nu­clear sci­en­tist, with Tehran sug­gest­ing that Shahram Amiri was a covert op­er­a­tive who pro­vided “valu­able in­for­ma­tion” about the Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence Agency’s in­ner work­ings. Iran’s semiof­fi­cial Fars news agency quoted an uniden­ti­fied source as say­ing Ira­nian in­tel­li­gence agents were in touch with Amiri while he was in the U.S., and “he was man­aged and guided (by us).” The re­port also said that his tale would be made into a TV movie.
