So, it seems that Pakistan, our staunch ally in the War Against Terror and Things that Go Bump in the Night, has actually been selling nuclear secrets to anyone who would pony up -- including, perhaps among others, the North Koreans, Libyans, and Iranians.

Now, this might set some of you to wondering how serious the leadership of Pakistan really is about aiding us in our cause. But worry not. They are blameless. Incredible as it may seem that Dr. A. Q. Khan, director of the country's nuclear labs, would decide to sell this strategic information entirely on his own, without the approval or even the knowledge of high-ups in the national government, it appears to be so.

How do we know? Because the higher-ups in the government say so. Ask President Musharaff, and he will tell you himself -- it is so. And if that's not good enough for you, you can also ask Dr. Khan. Now that he has received a complete, unconditional pardon from Musharraf, he is entirely free to tell you the exact same thing.

Well, that puts an end to that. Doesn't it?
