A CPAC Feed and “The Nuclear Jihadist”
Romney’s speech tomorrow will be as interesting as McCain’s, and both will generate an enormous amount of commentary and analysis which can be followed via Kithbridge. (Wouldn’t it be interesting if the former governor of Massachusetts announced that he and the former governor of Arkansas had decided to compete all the way to St. Paul and then throw the winner of their duel all their support for the nomination? About a 5% chance of happening, but it would liven things up.)
Tomorrow’s radio show is dedicated to an extended interview with Douglas Franz and Catherine Collins, authors of the new, riveting and very important book Nuclear Jihadist:The True Story of the Man Who Sold the World’s Most Dangerous Secrets…And How We Could Have Stopped Him.
This is the true story of A. Q. Khan –the Pakistani scientist who stole key nuclear technology from Europe, oversaw the building of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, and then sold the know-how and many parts to Libya, Iran and who knows who else. It is an alarming tale of the world we live in, and deserves a wide, wide audience and a close read. Not only does it provide a comprehensive but readable introduction to Pakistan and its political history since independence, it is also a primer on proliferation and the rogue states’ many efforts to obtain the ultimate weapon of terror.
