US Trying to Take Control of Pak nuclear arsenal, Government Silent

Special AHMEDQURAISHI.COM Report

Pakistani authorities have enough evidence that implicates US diplomats and trainers in spying on Kahuta, one of the prime nuclear facilities in the country.

What is stunning for most Pakistanis is that elements in the elected government, and especially the Interior Ministry, appear to be facilitating the Americans despite protests from police and intelligence officials.


The issue brings into question, once again, the role of Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik.  A trail of
internal ministry documents sharply bring Mr. Malik’s role into focus, especially in a case where his ministry appears to have permitted US defense contractors to conduct suspicious activities on Pakistani soil without informing Pakistani intelligence agencies.  Those activities have included allowing at least one US defense contractor to conduct a large scale recruitment of retired Pakistani military officers.

In 2003, the government of former president Pervez Musharraf allowed the Americans to establish a police training facility within the police college at Sihala, a few kilometers away from the Khan Research Laboratories, one of Pakistan’s premier nuclear research centers.


The Commandant Police Training College Sihala, Mr. Nasir Khan Durrani, wrote a letter on Aug. 15 to senior Pakistani police officers drawing their attention to the suspicious activities of American ‘trainers’ at Sihala.  Mr. Durrani is widely respected within the officer corps of Pakistan’s police service.  Some of his ideas, like Rescue 15, were implemented nationwide.


Durrani’s letter was not without basis.  In his report, titled,
Agency wants survey of site to assess equipment, Mr. Ansar Abbasi, editor investigations at The News International, revealed that there was some evidence that radiation measurement equipment has been installed by the Americans at the training facility.  He reported that US diplomats have been caught making frequent visits to the facility, attempting at one point to get into the high security perimeter around Kahuta. Amazingly, someone from FIA, the interior minister’s former employer and a lead civilian spy agency, helped release the arrested American diplomats.


The suspicions of Mr. Durrani, Commandant Police Training College Sihala, turn out to be legitimate.  Mr. Durrani might have expected to be rewarded for keeping a vigil on the country’s vital interests.  To his surprise, instead of a citation, Mr. Durrani was reprimanded by the Federal Interior Ministry.


The US Embassy in Islamabad, under a new policy of aggressively countering what it alleges to be ‘anti-Americanism’,
responded to these accusations but conveniently kept silent on the alarming incident of the arrest of US diplomats in July as they tried to survey the area around Kahuta.


The evidence is piling up that the present ‘elected’ government in Islamabad is racing against time to plant enough Americans inside Pakistan to counter the Pakistani military and the country’s strong intelligence setup. [See the video

American interference in our nuclear program is not new, in fact they have been at it since the early 70’s and 80’s. This reminds of an article I read on The News, titled “How a jilted Karachi woman saved Pak N-program” and has some interesting revelations. After failing to sabotage the nuclear plans of Pakistan, the US is now after our nuclear arsenal. And now that Pakistan’s situation is deteriorating day by day, the US has good reason to say “Hey, since those nuclear assets are no longer safer, why don’t you hand them over to us ?” This is the time, voices must be raised, action should be taken, otherwise the last remaining source of pride and hope for Pakistan will also diminish and the country will cease to exist.
