When I first heard this story, something did not set right. If he defected, he can not return to Iran, cause to do such would be bad for him and his
family. If he has family, then the Iranian government can use them against him, so it may be that he is going to return of his own free will to do
their bidding. But the one that seems to make the best sense is that he was a plant for the Iranian government.
I believe this is what happened and the reasons why: He is trained by the Iranian government, giving him a cover, and the actual expertise, then sent
out. They drop the word to the CIA, who does indeed pick him up, taking him to America. He naturally cooperates, giving them false information, not
all of it, but just enough to ensure he is going to go back to the USA. Now this is where I believe things get interesting.
He gets here, finishes giving them all of the false information, and they set him up, even allowing him to study at a university. My question would
be what was he studying while being watched and more importantely what was he studying when they were not watching him. You see when you are looking
at trying to build a nuclear weapon or any sort of science that deals with nuclear material, the refinement process is part of it, but at the same
time there are different enegineering components that would need to be known, and most can be found where: In any library, it may be crude by todays
standards, but the information is there if you know where to look. He takes the time, doing the ground work, carefully memorizing the nature of the
engineering aspects, and once he can do such without needing referneces, turns around and is ready to return to Iran. Gives the people who are
watching him the slip, uses a cover story to ensure that any ally of Iran is going to help him out, make his way to a consulate and off back home.
Once there, he is debriefed, to include any and all information he aquired while here and there you go, along with hard currency that he was suppose
to be given. That is what I would say happened.
