Iran blames U.S., Israel in killing of scientist

• AP
 A nuclear physics professor who publicly backed Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi in the disputed June presidential election was killed Tuesday when a bomb-rigged motorcycle blew up outside his home.

The blast, apparently set off by a remote trigger, left a puzzling mix of clues about why a 50-year-old researcher with no prominent political voice, no published work with military relevance and no declared links to Iran's nuclear program would be targeted.

Would you really believe anything the Iranian government said?  No matter what happens, it's always someone else's fault.  Reminds me of Pakistan disclaiming the Mumbai massacre by claiming it was the fault of Hindu Zionists.

 A 100 bucks says the Axis of Evil did it! When in doubt, you can look at these the evil twins and chances are they are perpetrators
