I am surprised this has gotten much press in the last few days.
"A top Iranian general is missing in Turkey and Iran is claiming he’s been abducted, while ABC News has reported he may have defected with his family and his knowledge of Iranian secrets."
"Iran said yesterday Ali Reza Asghari, a retired Revolutionary Guards general and a former deputy defense minister, disappeared while on a private trip to Turkey, and accused Western intelligence services of possibly kidnapping the official."
(He was not involved in the nuclear programs, but has other information)
Interesting to see what news comes out of this defection.
