The third Amiri theory

The two Amiri theories:
  1. he was a top-level Iranian nuclear scientist who defected to the U. S. and spilled the beans to the CIA; or
  2. he was kidnapped by the Americans and held against his will in the United States, at least until they decided he was no more use to them.
The third Amiri theory is that he is an Iranian double agent who successfully fooled the CIA and spread disinformation in the United States. Not a bad theory - it explains why he left his family behind, and helps to explain the two conflicting videos. It also explains why the Americans tried to cover their embarrassment by claiming they paid him $5 million and that he had been an American agent while in Iran, as if what he told them had some value.
