Police in Austria are investigating the mysterious death of a British nuclear monitoring expert. Early news reports said that Timothy Hampton, who worked for an international monitoring unit called the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), died after falling 12 stories in a building in the Vienna International Center, one of the United Nations' main office complexes in Europe.
Some news reports said that Hampton had been involved in the current round of negotiations between Iran, the U.S., and several other Western countries regarding Tehran's controversial nuclear program. However, his participation in the Iran talks could not be immediately confirmed
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Police called to the United Nations headquarters on Sunday found the body of a female U.N. employee on the building's lawn, the victim of a suspected suicide.
Police did not identify the woman, who was found in the U.N. headquarters' back courtyard overlooking the East River shortly after 8 a.m. EST, describing her only as white and 44 years old.
The United Nations issued a statement, but withheld the woman's name.
"A U.N. agency staff member died after falling from the 19th floor of the U.N. Secretariat building," it said. "At this time there is no suspicion of foul play."
Amazon Review :
Over the years, and today more than ever, the United Nations has failed to address the most dangerous threats facing the civilized world, refused to condemn terrorist acts, encouraged America’s enemies, and supported some of the world’s most oppressive governments, all while wasting billions of dollars.
As Fox News Channel reporter Eric Shawn points out, the U.N. is now where our so-called allies scheme against us, while Americans pay a whopping 22 percent of the U.N.’s bloated budget.
His book offers a rare insider’s tour of the United Nations, focusing on many disturbing aspects that have been ignored by the mainstream media.

One dies, another replaces him, it's that simple
so I don't think Iran would do it
unless he found something which they will now hide better
Hampton was one of four coauthors of a paper published by CTBTO last month regarding seismic readings taken during the course of a North Korean nuclear test last May. There is some apparent historical resonance between this case and the death of Dr. David Kelly, a British government scientist who killed himself in July 2003 after he fell under suspicion for potentially leaking information that raised questions about the intelligence used by the British government to justify its support for the invasion of Iraq. Kelly's death ultimately was the focus of a full-scale investigation by a senior British judge, which found that the BBC misreported allegations that Tony Blair's government had "sexed up" an anti-Saddam Hussein dossier, but also revealed evidence of political pressure on British intelligence officials to come up with alarming information about Saddam's alleged weapons of mass destruction program.

Good question, how could this possibly play into an advantage for one side or the other?
