Was Rigi’s arrest by Iran staged?

Yesterday, the Iranian government claimed that it had arrested the wanted militant Abdolmalek Rigi, by forcing his aircraft, which was overflying Iranian territory, to land. New evidence suggests that this operation could have been staged for the cameras. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/tehranbureau/2010/02/was-rigis-arrest-by-iran-staged.html

Tehran’s nuclear glue

The recent declaration by Tehran that its going to enrich uranium to 20%, has more to do with domestic reasons. We should expect more similar statements from Iran, even though they may not even be true. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/feb/08/tehrans-nuclear-programme
