After weeks of far-fetched news and video clips about and by “the missing Iranian nuclear scientist,” Shahram Amiri, Iranian state news websites announced today that Shahram Amiri has managed to get himself to the Iranian Interests Section of the Pakistani Embassy in Washington DC. He has asked to be returned to Iran immediately, according to the news.
What do you think the real scoop with Shahram Amiri is?
Was he abducted by Saudi agents and turned over to US agents, the way the Iranian government has claimed all along?
Did he apply for political asylum from the US in Saudi Arabia?
Was he/is he really in the US?
Was he really in Tuscon, Arizona, the way he claimed in one of the video recordings?
Was he really trying to pursue his education, the way he claimed in another one of the video clips?
If he was abducted, how did he manage to get himself to a computer, internet, and a webcam several times to record the video clips or to call the Iranian Ministry of Information?
How did he get from Tuscon to Washington DC?
