Isfahan, Iran - (X-Files Mess): Iranian security sources have blamed Mossad-trained pigeons for a sustained espionage campaign on the country's top secret UFO retro-engineering base near Tabriz.
The top secret bunker has been the country's very own Roswell Area 51 hangar ever since Iranian military farces (sic) captured a downed craft seen hovering over Bam Citadel just moments before the 2003 earthquake flattened much of the area.
The Etemad Melli newspaper today slammed the avian spies and accused them of carrying out covert military operations on behalf of Israel using "some metal rings and invisible strings ... attached to the birds".
"These flying scavengers have been proved to be communicating with high tech surveillance equipment that they were carrying," the paper's lead story said today.
Officially the classified Tabriz site has always been billed as a uranium enrichment plant.
But foreign intelligence agencies managed to penetrate the bunker and corroborated KGB intelligence reports that President Ahmadinejad's trusty team of ET retro-engineering specialists has been tinkering with a cigar-shaped craft for the last four years.
