Iran arrests 'US spies', gives few details

2012-01-08 21:40

Tehran - Iran's intelligence minister says the country's secret services have arrested several people on charges of spying for the United States and seeking to undermine the March 2 parliamentary elections.

Heidar Moslehi was quoted by state TV as saying that the suspects were in touch with their contacts outside the country through the internet. He did not identify them.

Moslehi didn't say how many were arrested or when.

Iran periodically announces the capture or execution of alleged US or Israeli spies, and often no further information is released.

    The correct response from the USA is : There are 100 000( whatever ) iranians living peacefully in the USA!

      Actually John the correct statement here is that there are 100 000 US citizens of Iranian decent in the United States. Once a country gives someone immigrant status they loose the ability to deport them and those immigrants are officially part of the US people.

      One to one and half million Iranian Americans.

    The USA should just stop their war mongering in the middle east and go home, taking Netanyahu with them.

      BA - 2012-01-09 09:49

      That's right Barry - this is all Natanyahu's fault. IDIOT.

      Blade - 2012-01-09 10:51

      Actually the USA should just grow a pair and nuke the entire Middle East.

      Barry - 2012-01-09 19:16

      @BA...yes you are right. Netanyahu has his legs wide open 24/7 for the USA. As the the USA ARE the terrorist state of this century, I don't understand your reasoning

      Fred - 2012-02-28 15:41

      Barry, that is plain silly. It's all very well believing this yourself (we're free to believe whatever we want, even the most daft things) but do you really expect people to believe that?

    The US needs to step back from its self imposed status of "savior of the free world" It has become even a bigger threat to world peace that extremist Islamic fundamentalists are.

      Fred - 2012-02-28 15:39

      Yeah right.
