On Nightwatch Surprising they'd leave a paper trail on the NK deal, not the duplicity, that is business as usual. The fairytale that A.Q. Khan was a rogue actor rather than sales was always laughable. This stings as Jehangir Karamat is regarded as one of the more moderate and pro-American guys in the Pak Army. He even worked with the liberal hawks at Brookings and was Mushies ambassador to DC. It's not really news, this story has been in the public domain for some time but that it pops up in the Pentagon's preferred leak channel, WaPo and gets endorsed by US intel folk is interesting. Both stories are an indicator of how strained Pentagon-Pindi relations have become, DC has traditionally looked the other way on ISI wet work like this, even Mullen's braided bromance with Kayani may be in danger. The Admiral's is on his way out, he's also been taking more conventional pops at Pindi's mini-me Qom over support to insurgents in our wars, something that is not at all new and as Gen P. pointed out rather slight compared to what the Pak Military gets up to with the talibans.
