Nuke-Smuggling Network Called Out of Retirement


www.newsmaxworld.com

Scientists, engineers and financiers involved in the A.Q. Khan nuclear-smuggling network are being contacted by several governments in an effort to lure these specialists out of retirement.

The development is raising concerns among U.S. intelligence agencies about the revival of the proliferation network that was thought to have been shut down years ago.

Two U.S. intelligence officials and other U.S. officials with access to intelligence reports said information compiled over the

There are many things that don't smell right, not only about the claims of these countries seeking this "nuclear network", but also the circumstances surrounding the network itself.

For one thing, I'm not so sure that these claims are completely believable, especially seeing how the US intelligence sector is down-playing the role of our allies, such as Brazil, yet implicating almost all of the "Axis of Evil". How convenient.

As far as the network itself, it just stinks and I'm sure that we aren't being told most of it. These guys weren't prosecuted and I highly doubt that it is because of the reasons stated. It sounds good on the surface but after thinking over it for a minute, it doesn't make too much sense.

Could this group be American, British and/or Israeli sponsored? Could there be an effort to allow a country such as Burma or Sudan to get a hold of a small nuclear weapon? These countries, with the exception of a couple, wouldn't have the delivery mechanism to pose any real threat, other than a a large-scale terrorist attack that would serve only to benefit the agenda of TPTB. Could these recent claims be an attempt to explain one of the countries obtaining a nuclear weapon? It doesn't seem too far fetched, IMO.

I tend to believe the former over the latter and here is why. If they were just trying to scare us, it would seem that they would likely focus on one particularly country. Also, they wouldn't be so vague, rather they would more likely say something like "so-and-so" was trying to acquire nuclear materials. It just doesn't seem like they would give such a vague generalization, without pointing out any serious threat. At least that's my opinion.

If a country like Sudan obtained a small nuclear weapon, just think how easy it would be for an operative to smuggle it across the Mexican border and detonate it in a major American city like Houston, however I doubt TPTB would allow that to happen, as it the blame would be on them for not securing the border and it just may disrupt their agenda, such as NAFTA. With that being said, nothing really surprises me anymore and TPTB could really tell the public anything and have them buy it.

I'm assuming you've seen the mini subs that carry coke from south America to the north whats to stop one of those sailing up one of the U.S rivers and detonating a devise in a major city? also big time cartels often pay high up members of DEA and other agency's to make sure they get no hassle shipping drugs. i know one of the major routes is through Florida then to Africa were it's sent to Spain/gibraltar and distributed throughout Europe. this involves DEA, IRA, south American suppliers, CIA, MI5, ETA and local authorities of all the locations involved. whats to stop someone using one of their routes to get a WMD into any western country?

Yeah, it smells like a very convenient story. Calling them out of retirement just like they did Osama. Way too convenient.

Why would they even release something like this to the MSM if not to instill fear and garner support?

Would you want the bad guys to know you're on to them?

Do you think a story in the MSM might stop them? Ha.

Wonder how long they've been "retired" too. Maybe since oh about 2007
The last time we went round and round with Iran and N. Korea? Oh wait...I see it was the go-round before that, circa 2003-2004. Was there any activity by them in 2007?

There are still missing around 192 nuclear weapons that we know of.
This includes the approximately 100 1 kiloton briefcases from Russia.

I always wondered why it's such a big deal that these "evil" states want to develop these weapons themselves when any big player in crime already has had such weapons offered to them. If there were really imminent needs to nuke countries they could've bought them from crime-bay

Apparently, they aren't the bad guys. According to the article, the US government "befriended" them (in a way).
