Muslim American Tries To Smuggle Nuclear Secrets To Iran
Oh those peaceful, patriotic and loyal American Muslims working at our nuclear power plants. Notice how the FBI's first reaction is to deny links to terrorism. How pathetic.
A former engineer at the nation's largest nuclear power plant has been charged with taking computer access codes and software to Iran and using it to download details of plant control rooms and reactors, authorities said.
The FBI said there's no indication the plant employee training software had any terrorist connections.
Mohammad Alavi, who worked at the triple-reactor Palo Verde power plant west of Phoenix, was arrested April 9 at Los Angeles International Airport when he arrived on a flight from Iran, authorities said.
Alavi, 49, is a U.S. citizen and denies any wrongdoing, said his attorney, Milagros Cisneros of the Federal Defender's Office in Phoenix.
He is charged with a single count of violating a trade embargo that prohibits Americans from exporting goods and services to Iran. If convicted, he would face up to 21 months in prison.
There are hundreds of Thousands of Iranians in USA . There are almost 9 million Muslims in USA which have sympathy for Al Qaida , There are hundreds of sleeper cells of Al Qaida in USA . So please watch or round up Fifth Column in USA before going to attack Iran.
