Former Dutch Prime Minister: nuclear proliferation to Libya, Iran and North Korea through by the CIA tolerated Pakistani top spy Dr. Kahn.
by Henk Ruyssenaars
FPF - The Netherlands - August 9 - 2005 - "We were not allowed by the american intelligence service CIA to arrest Pakistani top spy Dr. Abdul Khan, whom we knew had been stealing nuclear secrets from us for years."
This was confirmed by the former Prime minister of the Netherlands Ruud Lubbers today, in an investigating program - Argos - on Dutch national radio.* In reality blaming the CIA for Pakistani proliferation of stolen nuclear knowledge.
The program was made in cooperation with Japanese TV, remembering the unnecessary atomic
bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.*
This news is - to say the least - as usual very underreported by the international mainstream 'information' . Dutch minister of Justice P. H. Donner was asked about possible CIA action concerning Khan, and said in parliament last year that 'nothing of the kind has happened, the CIA had nothing to do with it'.
A discussion in the pro neocon Dutch parliament, run by speaker mr. Weisglass, again concerning Donner's lies and the CIA activities has been announced, of which nobody expects anything, except more lies.
According to the often very outspoken former prime minister and former United Nations Refugee High
Commissioner* Lubbers: "Under the influence of the so called Cold War, all 'western' intelligence services were ordered around by the CIA, and were told to back off so the CIA could follow Khan's spy activities''.
For all those years the CIA wanted Khan to go on with his spying, which ultimately was used to get US ally Pakistan atomic weapons too, Lubbers said.
"Just let him go, we'll follow him and that way get more information", the CIA told the Dutch secret service, which for ages apart from the CIA etc.also cooperates with the Israeli Mossad. Dutch national airport Schiphol serves as Israeli/Mossad base in Europe. Dutch Attorney General Vrakking testified on Jan. 29, 1999, that the El Al security detachment at Schiphol was a branch of Mossad.
“Schiphol has become a hub for secret weapons transfers,” charged Henk van der Belt, an investigator working with the Bijlmer survivors. [after the crash of an El Al airliner, see Url.]. “Dutch authorities have no jurisdiction over Israeli activities at the airport.” A TV Amsterdam (TVA) report identified Schiphol ''as one of several European airports that allows El Al to transfer cargo without supervision.''

European firms were eager to do business*
The result of the CIA's handling and supervising the situation was clear to anybody involved, and resulted in the following, as described by Christopher Clary last year: " Khan skillfully maneuvered around international export controls. He later said, "My long stay in Europe and intimate knowledge of various countries and their manufacturing firms was an asset. Within two years we had put up working prototypes of centrifuges and were going at full speed to build the facilities at Kahuta."
The European firms were eager to do business: "They literally begged us to buy their equipment," Khan recalled. It was an impressive feat, something which Khan was well aware of. He boasted, "A country which could not make sewing needles, good bicycles or even ordinary durable metalled roads was embarking on one of the latest and most difficult technologies. We devised a strategy whereby we would go all out to buy
everything that we needed in the open market to lay the foundation of a good infrastructure." [http://tinyurl.com/9kptv ]
Khan - with his South African wife Henny with a British passport - understood at the end 0f 1975 when working at the Dutch Ultra Centrifuge project in the laboratories of Urenco ,that he was watched, and took a very long weekend of which he didn't return.
Regrettably, the fact that the CIA forbade the Dutch secret service BVD (now AIVD) to arrest or stop Khan in any other way, made him within some years the "Father of the Pakistani Bomb'. Khan is blamed - by the US - for selling nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya, a proliferation the CIA in this case is responsible for.
Lubbers - in 1975 minister of Economy: "When asked the CIA told us it would be enough to stop Kahn working at or visiting the Urenco centrifuge factory." A court in Amsterdam condemned Khan in 1983 in his absence to four years in jail for his nuclear spying, but the verdict strangely enough later on was annulled 'because of a procedural error' was the only explanation given.
In 1986, when Ruud Lubbers was prime minister of the Netherlands, he again tried to get the American
government and the CIA to 'do something' about Khan's dangerous activities, but was told the Americans and the CIA 'did not want to interfere'.
By not interfering and 'just following' Dr. Khan, he was helped by the US/CIA/NSA to become the rich Pakistani
proliferation hero he is now: the 'Father of the Pakistani Bomb.'
Another bitter fact in those days to remember, when commemorating the hideous war crime which totally unnecessary destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the same inhuman possibility which 'thanks' to the CIA and Dr. Khan, has spread.
Khan keeps a small menagerie of pets. Each day at sunrise, he takes a sackful of peanuts when he walks
into the wooded Margala Hills across from his home and feeds the monkeys. Declared Khan, the day
after his country exploded another nuclear device, "I am the kindest man in Pakistan. I feed the ants in
the morning. I feed the monkeys."
And the mainstream media feed us their lies...
