On the heels of revelations that the hardcore jihadist who headed up Pakistan’s nuclear program was happy to share his knowledge and resources, we learn that “Pakistan scientists have sold plans to make a nuclear bomb to Libya for ‘millions of pounds’, Saif al-Islam [Sword of Islam], son of Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gadaffi has confirmed.” This from Sify News, .
“In an interview to the ‘Sunday Times’, Saif stated that Libya had bought nuclear components from a variety of black market dealers. ‘We dealt with an underground network of middle men and secret workshops’. Some Arab sources, quoted in the Times, said some of the components for the Libyan nuclear programme were bought in Dubai and shipped to Libya.
“Western experts who went to inspect Libyan weapons site, following the agreement between Colonel Gaddafi and Britain and the US, were taken aback when they found that nuclear scientists working for the Libyan leader had a ‘full bomb dossier’ from Pakistan.
“Reacting to Saif’s disclosure, Mahnaz Isphani, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, said an American aid package for Pakistan that was due to be discussed by the Congress could now come into question.” Glad to hear it.
