The embarassments continue to pile up for Pervez Musharraf. A recent investigation by the NY Times reveals that the establishment's claims of not having indulged in nuclear technology transfer to 'rogue' are far from what the truth really is. The brochure (see below) has AQ Khan's photo on it as well as a "Government of Pakistan" seal!
Yet George Bush (and the US government) continues to adopt an ostrich-like defensive approach by dismissing questions on Pakistan's (and Musharraf's) sincerity on nuclear weapons technology transfer by focussing on the fact that Musharraf had been a key ally in their war against terrorism. It is bound to boomerang upon them at some point of time or the other. The argument the administration offers is that Musharraf's government wasn't responsible for the leaks. Western diplomats have wonderfully described the actions of Pakistan's nuclear establishment by saying that it seemed like the scientists were running Nukes 'R' Us!
