more khan nefariousness

I should have read my talking points before the last two posts. Seems Salon has a new article out today suggesting that the Pakistanis official(s) involved in outing Khan might be playing toward a more shadowy end game. It seems Pakistani intelligence personnel aren't always on the opposite side of the Al Qaeda they're tracking.

The author, Husain Haqqani, described as a visiting scholar and "advisor to former Pakistani Prime Ministers" can be viewed as either exceptionally well connected or someone with an axe to grind re the current PM--or both.
