LGF finds "bombshell revelation" -
little green footballs
Saddam almost got a nuke
A new BBC miniseries has a bombshell revelation, in every sense of the term: shortly before the first Gulf War, Saddam Hussein came “within a whisker” of purchasing a complete, off-the-shelf nuclear device from Abdul Qadeer Khan’s Islamic nuclear black market. This ought to be huge news. But it isn’t. It’s a tiny blip in a BBC show mostly about Libya.
There’s no transcript online, but you can listen to the audio here: Dirty Wars.
