Iran Nuclear Chief was Targeted 8 Months Ago


An attack on an Iranian nuclear physicist Saturday may or may not have missed its mark, but the attack is very similar to one eight months ago that narrowly missed Dr. Fereydoon Abbasi, a nuclear physicist. Following that missed attempt, Iran’s mullahs decided to place Abbasi in charge of the Islamic republic’s nuclear program. The result, experts say, is quickening of Iran’s production of nuclear material.
