Najaf Rumor Harvest
So, Emad Mugniyah was assassinated by the Iraqi Intelligence Service, according to a doyen of the Iraqi Gossip Mill. Something about infiltrating a Sadrist-related Special Group (...HUMINT rather than SIGINT, according to the rumor) that was being given "master courses" by "Professor" Mugniyah in Damascus.
The Iranians are going crazy, pointing fingers all around and roughing-up Sadrists.
Does Shahwani really have it in him to pull something like this off? Was he even involved, or was the decision taken further down the line? Whoever did it, well done: the espionage geek within me thought it was a work of beauty and elegance.
