"It was a North Korean plane, and the army had complete knowledge about it and the equipment," Dr Khan said.

"It must have gone with his (Musharraf's) consent."

Correspondents say that the allegations are highly controversial and could prove extremely embarrassing for the army and Mr Musharraf.


Yea that's gotta burn a little. Pakistan, a supposedly "close ally" in the War on Terror, transported nuclear material to North Korea. The American Chronicle article summed it up in a nutshell:

LAHORE: Political uncertainty, deals with militants, judges movement, army's falling morale, and AQ Khan's so-called network about the alleged selling of nukes technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea raises new concerns among the world leaders about the possible theft of Pakistan's nuclear assets by religious extremists which might be resulted in real threat to the United States and the West. However, Pakistani officials have assured time and again over the safety of its nuclear weapons.
