An Iranian man who secretly pleaded guilty to plotting to ship sensitive US military technology to Iran will be sentenced this month, federal authorities said Wednesday. Authorities also revealed the suspect told an undercover investigator that Iran's leaders believe war is coming. Amir Hossein Ardebili faces up to 140 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges that include conspiracy, money laundering, smuggling and arms export control violations. Ardebili gave a stark explanation for why he was trying to buy so many different weapons parts, including technology that would help protect Iran from missile attacks. "By his own admission, Ardebili was assisting Iran in preparing for war with the United States," prosecutor David Hall wrote in a sentencing memorandum.
