Iranian Spy Caught Sending Stolen U.S. Documents on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter– Chris Dolmetsch (Bloomberg)

(Daily Alert)

    Mozaffar Khazaee, 59, a native of Iran who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1991, was arrested Friday as he attempted to fly to Tehran and 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.

    In November, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Homeland Security Department inspected a shipment Khazaee sent from Connecticut to Long Beach, California, bound for Hamadan, Iran, prosecutors said.

    The shipment contained boxes of documents, including technical manuals, specification sheets and other materials related to the Joint Strike Fighter program

    As recently as August, Khazaee worked as an engineer for defense contractors, including companies that owned the documents and materials in his shipment.
