So She IS a Spy After All!Now we find out that Roxana Saberi, who every news organization has proclaimed innocent" and that the charges that she was a spy against Iran were "ridiculous" and "completely unfounded" turns out to have been in possession of secret Iranian government documents after all.
Not that it surprises us that those who defended her had no idea as to her culpability, but this is really funny. I will not hold my breath waiting for anyone to offer a mea culpa on this one, but it did give me a chuckle when I read this item this morning. According to her own attorney, as posted on Yahoo News:
TEHRAN (AFP) – A lawyer for US-born reporter Roxana Saberi, freed this week from a Tehran jail, said on Wednesday the spy charges she had faced arose after she obtained a classified report on the US war on Iraq.No matter what her motives were, or how these documents got into her lying hands, in Iran today you have to be either stupid or crazy - or a spy - to even speak to people who traffic in such stuff. Anytime you juggle with dynamite, sooner or later something will blow up.
"She had a report about the US attack on Iraq prepared by the strategic research centre at the (Iranian) presidency," Saleh Nikbakht told AFP.
