Editor’s Note: The writer is the author of “A Time to Betray,” a book about his double life as a CIA agent in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
Two massive blasts on Nov. 12 that hit near Tehran, the Iranian capital, and rocked the city may have been an attempt to assassinate the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who had been scheduled to be there at the time of the explosions, sources suggest.
Now the question is whether the Iranians will retaliate.
At the time of the explosions, Iranians found themselves wondering if Israel had attacked. The International Atomic Energy Agency’s recent report on Iran’s nuclear weapons program and the warnings of military action by Israeli officials have alarmed Iranians about the possibility of war.
The simultaneous explosions, which hit the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ base 28 miles west of Tehran, not only shook the surrounding area but were heard and felt throughout Tehran, even breaking car and building windows.
