April 2, 2007 — An American citizen is missing in Iran, the State Department said today.Why has this been so quiet? Do you believe this is not connected to the British hostages? What would an "former" FBI agent be doing in Iran? He was their on "private" business? Or was he there on "company" business.
Sources tell ABC News that the missing American was a former FBI agent, although they stressed that he was now a private citizen and that his trip to Iran was on "private business" and not associated with official U.S. matters.
State spokesman Sean McCormack said that the United States had been monitoring this case for several weeks and today had sent a message to Iran through diplomatic channels for more information on his whereabouts.
State Department officials say that Iran has yet to respond with any information. Because the United States does not have diplomatic relations with Iran, the message was passed on by the Swiss Embassy in Tehran.
"If they continue at this pace, and they get the centrifuges to work and actually enrich uranium on a distinct basis," said David Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security, "then you're looking at them having, potentially having enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in 2009."Note all the qualifiers and if's in the quote. Methinks the administration is ginning things up again.
