Shahram Amiri

Back in Iran, says he was subjected to "harshest mental and physical torture"

BBC: An Iranian scientist who claims he was kidnapped by the CIA has said he was subjected to extreme mental and physical torture by the Americans. Shahram Amiri, who has flown from the US to Tehran, also denied being heavily involved in Iran's nuclear programme. Mr Amiri disappeared a year ago and resurfaced this week in the Pakistani embassy in Washington asking to be repatriated. The US said he had been in the country "of his own free will". Wearing a beige suit, a smiling Mr Amiri was greeted at Tehran's international airport early on Thursday by his tearful son and wife, along with other family members and Deputy Foreign Minister, Hassan Qashqavi >>>

iri should get this guy a new suit (and shirt).  thanks for the link demo.  i wonder if the claim in the link is true and amiri had actual control over the purported $5 million.  i think that neither party is telling the entire truth and amiri was not abducted. in amiri's world, i think he would have made a reverse poshtak if he had $5 million in the bank with his family somewhere in the u.s.  it just didn't pan out for him.  at any rate, i feel happy for the 7-year old boy.

Right! CIA kidnapped him, tortured him and then released him!

Thank you, Demo, for the Washington Post article is the highlight:


"Anything he got is now beyond his reach, thanks to the financial sanctions on Iran," a U.S. official said. "He's gone, but his money's not. We have his information, and the Iranians have him."


One of the U.S. officials said Amiri's family was a main factor in his decision to return. "He just wanted to see his family and, unfortunately, he chose a dumb way to do it," the official said, "lying about what happened to him here to try to build up his credibility back home."

He looks like a “Rat”, lives like a “Rat”, makes noise like a “Rat. Then he must be a “Rat.”
