The most obvious answer is Israel but there are other Middle East countries that do not want a nuclear armed Iran. Saudi Arabia doesn't want Iran nuking Riyadh. The other smaller gulf states don't want to be kicked off their thrones. Iran might have done this to suspected saboteurs until learning that they had been compromised by Stuxnet. After Stuxnet I think they will proceed cautiously in retaliating against the brain trust that can actually develop nuclear technology.

If it was misinformation from the Govt they would be stupid. Why tell everyone you missed. Hide the real target and pay his family to cry their eyes out. He lives for a while longer with no one looking for him.

...Iranian disinformation???
Disinformation, incompetence, illiteracy or some combination of the three.

From the CIA World Fact Book on Iran: Age 15 and over can read and write
total population: 77%
male: 83.5%
female: 70.4% (2002 est.)

It is important to understand that reporting countries have varying standards for literacy. Generally the countries with high literacy rates also have higher standards for what constitutes literacy. Countries with lower rates tend to have lower standards.

The low literacy rate suggests to me that the bureaucrats handling the reports could easily have confused the names.
