    Lubbers: CIA stopte vervolging Khan

    De Amerikaanse inlichtingendienst CIA heeft in 1975 en in 1986 de arrestatie van de Pakistaanse atoomspion Khan tegengehouden. Dat heeft voormalig premier Lubbers gezegd in het VPRO-radioprogramma Argos.


    Translation:

    Lubbers: CIA stopped the legal prosecution of Khan

    The American inteligence service CIA stopped legal proceedings in the Netherlands against the Paki nuclear spy Khan in 1975 and 1986.

    Er naar gevraagd sluit hij niet helemaal uit dat er dubbele agenda's waren, met het oog op de kille verhoudingen tussen oost en west. India, dat door de VS werd beschouwd als een bondgenoot van de
    Sovjet Unie, beschikte immers al langer over een atoombom.

    Translation:

    When asked, he (Ruud Lubbers) does not rule out an American double agenda, given the frosty relations between East and West. India was regarded as an ally of the Soviet Union, and India already had nuclear weapons.

    Good excuse for supplying centrifuges to Pak (AQ kHAN).
    Using this same logic maybe Iran should also have nukes
    to balance shiite with sunnis.
