Pakistani Says Army Knew Atomic Parts Were Shipped - Associated Press
Pakistan gave centrifuges to North Korea in a 2000 shipment supervised by the army, Abdul Qadeer Khan, the architect of Pakistan’s nuclear program, said on Friday. Dr. Khan said in a telephone interview that the uranium enrichment equipment was sent from Pakistan in a North Korean plane loaded under the supervision of Pakistani security officials. His claims stood in stark contrast with his 2004 confession that he was solely responsible for spreading nuclear technology to Iran, North Korea and Libya. But Dr. Khan has since renounced that confession, saying he made it to avoid implicating other Pakistani officials.
