Gen Kazemi has been in his job just 3 months. Previous to that he commanded the RG Air Force. Also on board the aircraft was the head of RG Intelligence. Kazemi was one of the architects of Iran's aggressive military doctrine. There is suspicion that the "accident" was engineered by anti- Ahmedinejad forces.
