Good start: Huge security shake-up at Y-12; Secretary Chu announces suspension of guards, relocation of key security managers

Good. It looks like some security heads will roll at Y-12, seeing as how some octogenarian criminalistic nun got penetration of the perimeter. Unforgiveable.

Thanks, Frank.

What the –?! Three peace activists infiltrated the highest-security area of the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant

Three peace activists — including an 82-year-old nun — infiltrated the highest-security area of the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant.

What the hell is going on up there?

Natanz man assassinated or elevated?

An interesting speculation concerning some poor nebbish that got assassinated in Iran by an unknown subject: Was he a top nuclear man or a file room clerk?

According to the wife, yes, her man had mighty hotness. Wife: Slain Nuclear Scientist’s Goal Was "Annihilation of Israel"

Maybe.

But a discerning eye will detect the likeness of her Mostafa to Rage Boy over in Pakistan:

Separated at birth, Rage Boy and Mostafa?

Twins separated at birth?

That being the case, maybe the geniuses in Tehran posthumously elevated this nudnik from file clerk to Enrico Fermi, Jr. for more efficient manufacture of propaganda if not HEU. Just a theory.

More unusual activity in Zahedan: vest bombers

From Planet-Iran.com, more news of violence.
UPDATE 3 >> Bombing in the Baluch city of Zahedan claims 30; Jundallah claims responsibility (vidoes)

More people die in Iran. This time it is Zahedan. It’s bad.

But I thought the Sunni would be using truck bombs, not vest bombers. The suicide vest is more like Hamas.

I still wonder where Osama bin Laden in hiding out: somewhere up in Khorasan, the recent guess? Perhaps in the country between Zahedan and Kandahar as I have been speculating this last year or so? Over in Pakistan?

UBL's Baluchizone?

Stop Iran NOW!

Stanley Baldwin or Neville Chamberlain, the appeasement of the Oval Office has got to stop.

Obama knew.

It has been interesting the past year, trying to figure out what the heck is going on in Iran vis-a-vis Osama bin Laden and al Quaeda. The Iran election crisis a year ago brought the attention of many eyes to Iran in a new way, so it might be that the walk to freedom in Iran will also work out eventually to the capture of a major criminal terrorist.

Zahedan: Iranians train Taliban to use roadside bombs

More connection between perfidious Iranian terror masters in Zahedan and the area of operations in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan.

Iranians train Taliban to use roadside bombs – Times Online.

TALIBAN commanders have revealed that hundreds of insurgents have been trained in Iran to kill Nato forces in Afghanistan.

The commanders said they had learnt to mount complex ambushes and lay improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which have been responsible for most of the deaths of British troops in Helmand province…

According to the commanders, Iranian officials paid them to attend three-month courses during the winter.

They were smuggled across the border to the city of Zahidan, in southeast Iran, an hour’s drive from training camps in the desert…

Where is bin Laden, and when will the US Marines bag him?

Why is President Obama playing footsie with the terror president in Iran, ignoring those in Yazd and the rest of Iran who seek freedom?

Al-Qaeda-Linked Terrorist Claims American Support

More from Annie Jacobsen on the dancing terror masters over in Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Al-Qaeda-Linked Terrorist Claims American Support.

It should not be too difficult to confirm whether or not the images of Rigi flashed during the press conference match up to the Manas military base.

Good. Trust but verify.

At least Annie Jacobsen is keeping her judgement about who is really talking about what happened to Rigi and who is spouting a myth. My guess, each of the dancing terror masters mentions a bit of truth and a bit of fiction.

Notably silent: the US Marines over in Helmand Province. Cf., Sherlock Holmes’ famous observation concerning the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.

From Sarbaz to Lashkar Gah

Where is bin Laden?

He won’t be near the explosions.

And after the phony elections, none of the dictator’s men have used the suicide bomb against the citizens who want freedom in Iran.

Suicide bomber kills 29 in attack on Iran Guards
By Fredrik Dahl and Reza Derakhshi

TEHRAN (Reuters) – A suicide bomber killed six senior Revolutionary Guards commanders and 23 other people on Sunday in one of the boldest attacks on Iran’s most powerful military institution…

Citing a witness, state television said Sunday’s attack occurred when senior Revolutionary Guards officers attending a conference in the southeastern city of Sarbaz went to talk to a group of tribes people making baskets…

Citing authorities and experts, a presenter of English-language Press TV said “the finger of accusation is directly pointed at the Jundollah group,” referring to ethnic Baluch Sunni insurgents who have been blamed for previous attacks in the region.

Jundollah, which claimed responsibility for the bombing of a Shi’ite mosque in May that killed 25 people, says it is fighting for the rights of the Islamic Republic’s minority Sunnis.

Some analysts believe that Jundollah has evolved through shifting alliances with various parties, including the Taliban and Pakistan’s ISI intelligence service, who saw the group as a tool against Iran.

Predominantly Shi’ite Muslim Iran has also linked Jundollah to the Sunni Islamist al Qaeda network…

Iran is still not free.

U.S. Marines are in Helmand Province.

So there are three big questions right now in that part of the world:

  1. Where are the U.S. Marines?
  2. Where is Usama bin Laden?
  3. When will Iran be free?

No wonder the president is taking such a long time to make his play in Afghanistan.

Lorestan, Kahrizak Prison, Yazd and freedom in Iran

Michael Ledeen renders a summary of atrocious acts of violence in Iran against those who seek freedom. Even the mullahs are starting to get disgusted enough to close the Kahrizak prison.

The Torturers and the Secretary
And, according to reliable sources, the morgues still have a stockpiles of about 400 corpses. Each day three to four corpses are released to relatives.

The release of the cadavers follows a singularly macabre procedure…

After signing the papers the relative can receive the corpse. Upon receipt of the corpse of the [mainly young] man or woman, the real cause of death–brutal torture–becomes obvious. They see their loved one totally beaten up, nails pulled out, evidence of rape, bodies covered with so many burns that it is difficult to recognize the dead person, and the like.

Lorestan-Iran-MapDespite the secrecy pledge, these horrendous details are now emerging and even members of the usually very loyal part of the clergy are now disgusted and upset…

Meanwhile Karroubi himself has left Tehran for his native Lorestan, where he can count on the protection of his people.

Iranian Prosecutor-General Ayatollah Qorban Ali Dori Najafabadi acknowledged that some detainees have been tortured in prison, saying: “Mistakes have led to some unfortunate and indefensible incidents, and those involved will have to be punished.” This includes many reported incidents at Kahrizak prison, where prisoners were killed, and which has since been closed on Khamenei’s orders…

The treatment of prisoners reminds me of Emmett Till, who was so horribly beaten and killed by the Ku Klux Klan.

It is a bad sign for the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei that Karroubi heads back to home ground in the mountains of Lorestan, west of Tehran. I wonder whether it will be easier or tougher to keep Karroubi isolated, incommunicado there on his home ground.

We continue to wait for the US Marines to sweep up Osama bin Laden in their Helmand operations or push him across the border into the Sistan and Baluchistan province of Iran.

We continue to wait for Yazd to wake up and walk toward freedom.

We continue to wait for effective leadership to emerge for freedom in Iran. Neither electrician, playwright nor good sergeant Schweik, but maybe someone a young computerist fiddling with his iPod and a USB cable this very day, exploiting RSS on the iTunes Store.

Yazd seeking freedom?

Can freedom find its way into Yazd? Here is a satellite view of the Yazd area.

As Charter 77 stated 32 years ago, "Many scholars, writers, artists and others are penalized for having legally published or expressed, years ago, opinions which are condemned by those who hold political power today."

But now the Czech Republic and Slovakia are free. Good.
