US officials have denied any role in the apparent killing of an Iranian nuclear scientist, and condemned the bomb attack which Tehran said was linked to Washington and Israel.
"I want to categorically deny any United States involvement in any kind of act of violence inside Iran," Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, told reporters on Wednesday when asked about Iranian allegations over the attack.
Tommy Vietor, a National Security Council spokesman, added: "The United States had absolutely nothing to do with this. We strongly condemn all acts of violence, including acts of violence like this."
Victoria Nuland, Clinton's spokeswoman, said the state department condemned "any assassination or attack on an innocent person and we express our sympathies to the family".
This comes following the death of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a nuclear scientist who supervised a department at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility. He was killed on Wednesday in an explosion outside a university campus in Tehran.
In a letter, Iran's government demanded the UN Security Council strongly denounce the killing.
Mohammad Khazaee, Iran's UN ambassador, called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the 15-nation Security Council and UN General Assembly president Nassir Abdulaziz al-Nasser to condemn the killings "in the strongest terms".
"There is firm evidence that certain foreign quarters are behind such assassinations," Khazaee said.
The country's powerful Revolutionary Guards were also adamant that "the terrorist actions against our nuclear scientists and experts is a US-Zionist plot," the AFP news agency reported.
Story Continues

Let's assume Hillary Clinton is telling the truth (Ha!) and the U.S. had nothing to do with the terrorist bombing in Iran.
That leaves one suspect - Israel.
Anyone with a brain knows Israel did it so, that means that Israel is a terrorist state.
The U.S. supports a terrorist state by giving it weapons and millions of dollars every year.

So the U.S. is directly or indirectly a terrorist state. Should U.S. tax payers support a terrorist state by paying taxes?
It seems to me that any citizen that pays Federal taxes is guilty of helping support terrorism.

So is it better for American citizens to knowingly support a terrorist state, which is illegal, or is it better for American citizens to not pay their Federal taxes, which is also illegal?

I know which choice most Americans will make.

They will pay their taxes and support terrorism.
