AxisofLogic/ World News/CommentThe former senior American intelligence official was equally blunt. He told me, “Khan was willing to sell blueprints, centrifuges, and the latest in weaponry. He was the worst nuclear-arms proliferator in the world and he’s pardoned—with not a squeak from the White House.”
It's rather remarkable to me how quietly we've accepted this situation. Khan has actually done what we invaded Iraq to prevent. The answer, of course, is "quid pro quo" which is to say that in exchange for looking the other way on this heinous proliferation of nuclear weapons the Pakistani government is stepping up support for our pursuit of Osama Bin Laden.
Is that a fair trade? I guess that's what we'll have to figure out.
