More Spy v. Spy

The story of Iranian nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri is an odd one growing more strange each day.  It seems that Amiri disappeared during a trip to Saudi Arabia last year, and then turned up under the protection of the CIA in Arizona. 

Reading the story, it is hard to come away not thinking that this guy is a wing-nut, and that however the CIA got him to leave Iran, they were so desperate to have SOMEONE on the inside that they leaped at the chance to have even a tin-hat guy like this. 

In the category of "bad decisions", Amiri has decided he'd like to go home to Iran.
