A Sunday Times reporter reveals the contents of a letter A.Q Khan wrote to his daughter before he was placed under house arrest in Islamabad. I’d treat it–like all “damning” pieces of evidence–with a grain of salt. It does, however, present an interesting picture of the world of nuclear proliferation. Khan asserts that Pakistan’s political and military leaders put him up to selling nuclear secrets and components to Iran, North Korea and Libya, which is something I’m inclined to believe because Khan’s operation would have been impossible without intelligence and military support.
