And now let us return to the days of yore, February 11, 2004, when President Bush, made remarks on Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation.
President Bush actually said (no, really, I’m not kidding) some good things about how to prevent proliferation.
But, in light of what I’ve previously posted about Richard Barlow, I’m thinking that perhaps the US government might want to rethink how much it appreciates the efforts of the men and women of our intelligence community:
This picture of the Khan network was pieced together over several years by American and British intelligence officers. Our intelligence services gradually uncovered this network’s reach, and identified its key experts and agents and money men. Operatives followed its transactions, mapped the extent of its operations. They monitored the travel of AQ Khan and senior associates. They shadowed members of the network around the world, they recorded their conversations, they penetrated their operations, we’ve uncovered their secrets. This work involved high risk, and all Americans can be grateful for the hard work and the dedication of our fine intelligence professionals.
