On November 7, 2001, BBC TV and the Guardian of London reported that the Bush
Administration thwarted investigations of Dr. A.Q. Kahn who confessed to selling atomic
secrets to Libya, North Korea, and Iran.
The Bush Administration has expressed shock at the disclosures that Pakistan, our ally
in the war on terror, has been running a nuclear secrets bazaar. In fact, according to
the British News Team sources', Bush did not know of these facts because, shortly after
his inauguration, his National Security Agency defectively stymied the probe of Kahn
Research Laboratories. CIA and other agents could not investigate the spread of Islamic
Bombs through Pakistan because funding appeared to originate in Saudi Arabia.
According to both sources and documents obtained by the BBC, the Bush Administration
Spike of the investigation of Dr. Kahn's Lab followed from a wider policy of protecting
key Saudi Arabians including the Bin Laden Family. [Greg Palast]
