I've Been Thinking:
An Iranian expatriate was assassinated in Istanbul Turkey recently.
Saeed Karimian was the founder and head of a satellite television network that broadcast in Persian all over the world and was even viewed in Iran through satellite dishes and the internet.
Karimian was murdered, along with a colleague, as they drove down a street in Istanbul. A jeep pulled up and blocked their path. Then two assassins with ski masks got out and murdered Karimian and his associate.
The jeep was later found abandoned and burned.
Earlier this year Karimian was convicted in Iran in absentia and sentenced to 6 years in prison. He was convicted for "acting against national security of the Islamic Republic" and "spreading propaganda against the Islamic Republic."
The prime suspect in the death of Saeed Karimian is, of course, the Iranians. We will follow the investigation.
