Pakistan 'father of bomb' set for pardon

Pakistan's government has recommended a presidential pardon for the disgraced architect of its nuclear programme.
Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan stunned the nation on Wednesday when he confessed on national television to leaking nuclear weapons secrets.

A foreign ministry spokesman denied the cabinet's recommendation had been lenient, calling it a "wise decision".

Iran, Libya and North Korea are all said to have benefited from the secret transfer of nuclear technology.

The head of the UN's atomic agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, described the revelations about Dr Khan as just the "tip of the iceberg" of illegal trafficking.

Dr Khan, a national hero, has said he takes full responsibility for the scandal.

You know, a few years ago, a scientest was whacked by a Mossad Black team, for designing a Super Gun for the Iraqis. How come this guy is still alive and well, and tooling about the place?

I notice that Iraq didn't seem to be on the list. :roll:

Quite a paradox that a country where many people still live in glorified mud huts, aspire to ( and achieve) nuclear weapons. Ditto India. Priorities anyone?

Kahn acted independently? My arrse. Hopefully some intrepid journalist will expose a lot more than anyone in Pakistan's hierarchy is letting on. However all the journos are too busy trying to discredit the usual bogeymen, none of them non European.

Maybe Pakistan doesn't beat its chest and threaten Israel. Anyway, it's early days.
