Summary
"The turbulent nation of Pakistan, where Osama bin Laden is far more popular than George W. Bush, possesses a Nuclear arsenal built with technology from the United States and Europe and financed with the help of America's allies in the Muslim world. Its dictatorial president, Pervez Musharraf, faces widespread civil opposition, and militant extremists threaten his life every day. The nuclear weapons programs in North Korea and Iran, as well as Libya's now-defunct atomic effort, relied heavily on expertise and materials provided by the nuclear smuggling network headed by Pakistan's national hero, A.Q. Khan. The United States - from Carter and Reagan, through Bush I, Clinton, and the current president - and other Western governments knew all along that Pakistan was first developing and then exporting nuclear technology, yet consistently turned a blind eye in order to gain Pakistan's cooperation during the Cold War and, more recently, in the war on terror. As a result of this Faustian bargain, nuclear technology has been allowed to spread far and wide, dramatically increasing the chances that terrorists or unfriendly regimes will someday get their hands on an atomic device."--Jacket
