No surprise in this account. The ONLY nation we know of that actually accepted Khan's presentation was Libya and that was conditional. Saddam turned him down, Iran used him for what it needed, Korea did the same. I would like to know the total story, but we do know that Libya's acceptance was not what Khan wanted financially, that Iran was screwed on the P-1 centrifuges and that Khan got caught and is now under "house arrest' (ha, ha) in Pakistan. The "Great Proliferator" was Ronald Reagan who encouraged, allowed and supported the development of the Islamic Bomb in return for the use of Pakistan as a base to launch attacks on the Soviet Union by what became Al Quaeda. In the end, the "Khan" (spell that Pakistani) nuclear weapons proliferation industry turned out to fail of it's own perfidy. Thank God.
