For starters, how the frack does anyone with a name like Mozaffar Khazaee get anywhere near an Air Force base much less an F-35 or any technical information about it??

Drat!  I was hoping it was John Kerry following up on his traitorous activities during Viet Nam. :truce:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Engine tech, there for test evaluations. Typical screw up. The USAF assumed he'd been vetted, is my guess. He certainly should have been.

According to a US government affidavit, federal agents began investigating Khazaee in November, when he attempted to send a shipment from Connecticut to the Iranian city of Hamadan.

What'd he do, box it up and stand in line at the Post Office?  What an idiot.  If you're sending something like this to a country like Iran, you find other, more surreptitious ways to send it.  For example, why not take a little driving vacation to Mexico - his package would most likely not be searched at the border crossing - and mail it off from there?

And why did he stick around until now?  Unless his package was allowed to continue on to Tehran, with faked documents instead of the real stuff - tho' they'd have to be good - the people on the other end must have noticed when the package didn't arrive on time; you'd think they'd have notified him that something went amiss.  At that point it would be a good bet that your package got intercepted and that it would be prudent to high-tail it immediately.

This is a little like the 1993 World Trade bomber who went back to Hertz after the bombing to get a refund on his deposit because the truck he rented had been stolen.
