UPdate: Code below works with VAR's
void recursive_render (const aiNode* nd)
	unsigned int n = 0;
	aiMatrix4x4 m = nd->mTransformation;
	// update transform
	// draw all meshes assigned to this node
	for(; n < nd->mNumMeshes; ++n) 
		const aiMesh* mesh = scene->mMeshes[nd->mMeshes[n]];
		glVertexPointer(3, GL_FLOAT, 0, mesh->mVertices);
		glNormalPointer(GL_FLOAT, 0, mesh->mNormals);
		glTexCoordPointer(3, GL_FLOAT, 0, &mesh->mTextureCoords[0][0]);
		glVertexAttribPointer(uniformVariable[0], 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, mesh->mTangents);
		glVertexAttribPointer(uniformVariable[1], 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, mesh->mBitangents);
		for(unsigned int t = 0; t < mesh->mNumFaces; ++t)
			const aiFace* face = &mesh->mFaces[t];
		glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, indices.size(), GL_UNSIGNED_INT, &indices[0]);

	// draw all children
	for(n = 0; n < nd->mNumChildren; ++n)

You apparently ignore the transformations stored in the scene. Meshes don't exist on their own, they're always indexed by a aiNode which specifies a transformation in relation to the other nodes. You need to iterate over the nodes and render the meshes using the accumulated transformation from the nodes.

Have a look at the Assimp/trunk/samples/SimpleOpenGL directory, there's a rather minimal aiScene renderer for you to look at.
