MSNBC is reporting that the UN has released info that says Egypt performed nuclear experiments that could lead to weapons within the last few
"VIENNA, Austria - The U.N. atomic watchdog agency has found evidence of secret nuclear experiments in Egypt that could be used in weapons programs,
diplomats said Tuesday.
The diplomats told The Associated Press that most of the work was carried out in the 1980s and 1990s but said the International Atomic Energy Agency
also was looking at evidence suggesting some work was performed as recently as a year ago."
Though Egypt is nominally a US ally, there are strong fundamentalist elements within its military... and Egypt, itself, was the home to the modern
fundamentalist movement in the 40s and 50s.
