The latest on Pakistan’s nuclear jihad from AP:
The founder of Pakistan’s nuclear program, Abdul Qadeer Khan, has admitted he transferred nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea, a Pakistani government official said Monday.
Khan made the confession in a written statement submitted “a couple of days ago” to investigators probing allegations of nuclear proliferation by Pakistan, the official told The Associated Press on condition on anonymity.
The transfers were made during the late 1980s and in the early and mid 1990s, and were motivated by “personal greed and ambition,” the official said. . . .
They told journalists that Khan admitted to selling outdated “drawings and machinery” to the three countries to earn money for Pakistan. However, Khan claimed the transfers to Libya and Iran were also motivated by wanting to help other Muslim countries become nuclear powers, said two journalists who attended the briefing.
