Pakistan Admits Rogue Scientist Aided Iran

“ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) – Pakistan’s information minister acknowledged Thursday that a rogue scientist at the heart of an international nuclear black market investigation gave centrifuges to Iran, but he insisted the government had nothing to do with the transfer.

It was the first time the Pakistani government has admitted that Abdul Qadeer Khan actually gave material to Iran, although it has said in the past that his criminal group sold technology and blueprints to several countries.

“Dr. Abdul Qadeer gave some centrifuges to Iran,” Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “He helped Iran in his personal capacity, and the Pakistan government had nothing to do with it.”

I want to know who else he met with. Are we certain that he did not pass this information along to groups or individuals.
