Cassandra: USA Extradites Singapore Citizen for Export of Bomb Components to Iran
By Graham K. Rogers
It is reported that from 2008 - 2010, some 16 of these modules were found in unexploded improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq:
. . . the "modules include encryption capabilities and have a range allowing them to transmit data wirelessly as far as 40 miles when configured with a high-gain antenna. These same modules also have potentially lethal applications. Notably, during 2008 and 2009, coalition forces in Iraq recovered numerous modules, all made by the same Minnesota firm, that had been utilized as part of the remote detonation system for IEDs."
The indictment alleges that those in the conspiracy shipped 6,000 of the modules to Iran from Minnesota.
