Q1: Hello....Shahram Amiri went missing while on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in June 2009. He worked for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization. Could his disappearance have been related to his career?

Q2: A series of videos surfaced that showed Amiri commenting on his status. One claimed he was kidnapped by American agents and taken to the US. In another he claimed to be freely studying in the United States. How can such contradictory statements be explained?

Q3: Iran has repeatedly accused the CIA of abducting Amiri. Though there is no explanation for how Amiri got to the country, the US denies involvement and says he is free to leave. What do you think of the statements made by each country?
