        Nuclear scientist abducted or...?

        Reuters: Iran's state television showed a video on Monday of what it said was a missing nuclear scientist declaring he had been kidnapped and taken to the United States where he was "tortured."

Saudi Arabia denied the claim, saying the kingdom had searched in vain for him on its territory

        In this clip Amiri says he is in the US to pursue his higher education:

Iran Focus has learnt that the organisation has also been tasked with accelerating Iran's nuclear projects, which are run by the IRGC. Taeb reports directly to Khamenei

                        Tony Blair: Radical Islam, Iran threat
                        Former British PM: "We must be prepared to confront Iran"

                        AFP: Former prime minister Tony Blair warned on Sunday that the roots of radical Islam were far deeper than we think and said Al-Qaeda would have killed 300,000 on September 11, 2001 if they could. "This is actually more like the phenomenon of revolutionary communism," Blair said in an interview with ABC News, commenting on the reach of Islamic extremism. The former leader took a similarly hard line on Iran. Blair said he did not favour war with Iran but added: "I'm saying I think you cannot exclude it because the primary objective has got to be to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon."
