Man Charged With Trying to Send Iran Fighter Documents

I just do not understand why Iranians, even a naturalized Iranian are allowed access to any sensitive or classified defense documents.  The Islamic Republic of Iran has been at war with the US since the takeover of our embassy. Obviously our vetting process is lacking along with the common sense to not allow sworn enemies to work in the US.  Whoever allowed this man access to sensitive /classified documents should share his jail cell.

I also do not understand why this man was not charged with espionage.  With a maximum penalty of only ten years for the charges being pressed, even though he is a naturalized citizen, he will eventually return to Iran a hero and take with him in his head all the knowledge he was allowed to see in the course of his employment.  Any Muslim jihadi convicted of any level of crime against the US should be incarcerated for the rest of their miserable natural lives. 

BTW the article title should read: Muslim man charged with trying to send Iran fighter documents.


Man Charged With Trying to Send Iran Fighter Documents

A former engineer for defense contractors was charged with trying to ship military documents to Iran, including materials related to the U.S. Air Force’s F35 Joint Strike Fighter program and jet engines.

Mozaffar Khazaee, 59, was arrested yesterday at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey as he attempted to fly to Tehran, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Connecticut said in a statement.

Khazaee, a native of Iran who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1991, formerly lived in Manchester, Connecticut, and recently moved to Indianapolis, prosecutors said. He was arrested after arriving from Indiana and before he was able to board a connecting flight to Frankfurt.

Federal agents began probing Khazaee, also known as Arash Khazaie, in November when U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Homeland Security Department inspected a shipment he had sent to Long Beach, California, from Connecticut, bound for Hamadan, Iran, prosecutors said.

While documents accompanying the shipment indicated it contained household goods, a search revealed boxes of documents, including technical manuals, specification sheets and other materials related to the Joint Strike Fighter program and jet engines, according to court filings.
