The Times of London has a lot more information about defector Gen. Ali Reza Asgari, mostly from Iranian and Israeli sources. There is lots of interesting stuff, but the most important fact (assuming it’s true) is that Asgari has been spying for the West since 2003. If that’s right, our intelligence on Iran ought to be pretty good.
The Times says that Asgari has intimate knowledge of Iran’s support for terrorist groups, and may have brought documents relating to that support with him. Asgari is said not to have detailed knowledge of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, but, given the positions he’s held, it would be surprising if he couldn’t be of help there as well.
