    Iran says Saudis handed missing scientist to U.S. | Reuters

    Shahram Amiri, a university researcher working for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, disappeared during a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in June. Some media reports said he wanted to seek asylum abroad.

    "Riyadh has handed over Iran's nuclear scientist Amiri to America," Mehr quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying.

    Tehran originally refused to acknowledge Amiri's involvement in Iran's disputed nuclear program, which the United States suspects is being used to develop nuclear weapons. Iran says it is aimed at generating electricity.

    Mehmanparast said Amiri was being detained in the United States.

    --------------------

    Iranians assume he was kidnapped. Perhaps he didn't want to support such a terrible religious, right wing government and left on his own?

    Is this the first time ever Washington has kept a secret?

    False completely false. He is simply on a water-filled trip to an undisclosed third party country for an exciting, all expense paid, thought provoking adventure.

    In a dry manner, he said, "Well, you know the desert IS very dry and arid".
