Terror suspect to be named Iranian defense minister
Looks like this nasty piece of work is going to be doing the dirty work for the mullahs.


Iran's nomination for defence minister is likely to be approved despite being linked to a bombing in Argentina, an influential politician has said.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad nominated Gen Ahmad Vahidi - even though he is wanted by Interpol for the 1994 attack on a Jewish centre that left 85 dead.

Gen Vahidi is one of five Iranians sought by Argentina over the bombing in Buenos Aires - the worst terrorist attack in the country's history.

At the time he commanded the Quds Force, a unit of the Revolutionary Guard responsible for foreign operations.
