From Paul L. Willams’ 2005 book The al Qaeda Connection:

Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, a German-trained metallurgist, began his career by stealing plans for enriching uranium to weapons-grade strength in gas centrifuges from Urenco, a top-secret atomic energy plane in the Netherlands. He had been employed there as a technician. Khan fled to his native Pakistan, where he set up his own nuclear testing facitliy — the A. Q. Khan Research Laboratories — near Islamabad. For the next twenty-eight years, he worked to build “the Islamic bomb” with the assistance of Chinese technicians and scientists. His efforts were subsidized by wealthy Saudi Arabian businessmen and the administration of Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

On May 28, 1998, thanks to Khan’s efforts and thievery, Pakistan officially joined the elite nuclear club of nations…with the successful testing of five atomic bombs beneath the scorched hills of the Baluchistan desert. This day has become Yaum-e-Takbeer, a national holiday, in which eerie light shows recreating the giant mushroom in the sky are presented throughout Pakistan. In towns and villages, celebrants worship the radioactive fragments from the blast as religious artifacts that can bestow spiritual powers upon families and country…

[Dr. Khan] is the only Pakistani to have received the highest civilian award of “Nishan-i-Imtiaz” twice — in 1996 and 1998. “His stature is so elevated and protected by the Pakistani government,” writes Rajesh Kumar Mishra of the South Asia Analysis Group, “that…anything said or done against this scientist is considered anti-Pakistan, anti-Islam, and intolerable.”

In the United States and western Europe, however, Dr. Khan became viewed as a rogue scientist, a nuclear madman, and an individual far more dangerous than Osama bin Laden or Ayman al-Zawahiri. Several years before the mushroom cloud appeared over the Chagai Hills, Dr. Khan, at the request of Prime Minister Bhutto, engaged in discussions with North Korean officials for the purchase of twelve to fourteen Nodong ballistic missiles. A deal was struck. In exchange for the six-hundred-mile-range, nuclear-capable missiles that would be modified to produce Pakistan’s Ghaudi missiles, Dr. Khan provided North Korea with the Dutch blueprints he had stolen for the enrichment of uranium. The deal enabled North Korea to emerge as the most formidable nation in President Bush’s infamous “axis of evil.”

All of which is proof that no matter how “westernized” or “democratically-minded” Benazir Bhutto may have seemed, she was in the end just another crazy Muslim. Mrs. Bhutto, if you know how krazy Muslims is, including the krazy Muslims that’s always trying to kill yo’ ass, and you still want them to have a nuke, then I’m sorry, girl, but you krazy too.
