Iran’s top nuclear scientist killed in apparent assassination, state media reports

Iran’s top nuclear scientist was killed Friday in an alleged assassination that the country’s foreign minister linked to Israel.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, considered one of the masterminds of Iran’s controversial nuclear program, died after his car was apparently ambushed in a district east of Tehran. Photos from the scene showed the shattered windshield of a car, and blood on the road.
Iranian state media said the killing appeared to be an assassination. Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami was quoted by Iran’s semi-official news agency ISNA as saying Fakhrizadeh was targeted by gunfire and a Nissan vehicle explosion, before a firefight ensued.

Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif called the death “cowardice — with serious indications of Israeli role.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office declined to comment. Read the rest of the article here: CNN

    The Fox News feeds on this have former oblowme people calling this a terrorist attack…on the terrorist. Wonder if we paid for the dead mofo’s education…you know, when we were educating all of the Shah’s people. Too bad they didn’t use a nuke to take the bastard out.

    Barry, John Brennan and John Kerry are personally devastated and will attend the funeral.

  18. Mason says:

    Check out who thinks it was a bad idea. That’s right, (former) communist John Brennan.

    Who could believe that there would be a former CIA director who thinks it’s a bad idea to take out the guy trying to make nukes for Iran?

      I found it sad that in 1980 you could join the CIA as a communist Egyptian deep mole but not the military.

    When asked to comment, President Trump attributed it to workplace violence.

  21. Hondo says:

    Gee. This is . . . terrible news. Just terrible.

  23. Slow Joe says:

    This is horrible news.

    This means Israel believes Slo Joe and the Ho will be take power in JAN and Israel is trying to take care of all unfinished businesses before the change over, while Team Trump can still provide diplomatic and political cover.
