Reuters reports that, USA agency, the CIA has been linked to murder of Iranian Scientist . Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan is the latest victim of a series of attacks on scientists in Iran. US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton denies any U.S. role in killing. Attackers riding on motorcycles are reported to have attached a magnetic bomb to the vehicle carrying Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a deputy director for commercial affairs at Natanz nuclear plant in central Iran.

Iran can be trusted in these matters to tell the truth. Israel can be trusted not to pose as the CIA.

I have to wonder how long this post will remain on MetaFilter. My guess is that it will stay since it is negative "international" news about the current US administration. It seems that if this post was about a political topic reported in the "domestic" news--it would be deleted in the blink of an eye. Why is that?

Personally, I think it's the Israelis, but there are probably a number of possible perpetrators who haven't even been discussed. Strange to say, I don't take Iran's word on this matter, or any other.

Judging from the first comment, I rest my case.

A "letter of condemnation" hardly constitutes a valid "link" to CIA involvement. This is poorly framed post.

My mom used to warn me about gangsters throwing flaming rags in my car, but in the future it's going to be motorcycle gangs with magnetic bombs. Now I have to drive a ceramic car. :(

And to be clear Reuters is not reporting that the CIA has been linked to the murder, only that Iran is accusing the US of it.
