There have been some changes to the timeline focusing on the nuclear supermarket run by Pakistani nuclear scientist A. Q. Khan. Primarily, I took the three categories covering various officials that had worked against the Khan network, British customs agent Atif Amin, US intelligence analyst Richard Barlow and former CIA NOC Valerie Plame Wilson and grouped them into a special meta-category called Counterproliferation Officials Working against A. Q. Khan Network.

New Categories in A. Q. Khan Timeline

Four new categories have been added to the A. Q. Khan Timeline. They are:

Britain, which details the nuclear proliferation network’s activities in Britain (they bought a lot of stuff there) and British investigations and knowledge of it.

The Netherlands, which details the nuclear proliferation network’s activities in the Netherlands (Khan worked there and stole secrets at the start of his career) and Dutch investigations and knowledge of it.

The United Arab Emirates, which details the nuclear proliferation network’s numerous activities in UAE and UAE investigations (shut down) and knowledge of it.

Obviously, there is a lot of material that is still to be added here, but we have made a decent start.

There is also a category called Atif Amin, who headed a British customs investigation into the network in 1999-2000. Like just about every other investigation into Khan, it was frustrated.

New Categories Being Implemented


Okay, you talked me into it. If we’re going to discuss the projects, we need categories to organize the discussion. Otherwise the whole thing becomes a big mess. The categories are in the system. I’m cheating and adding all the categories to this single post. They will display in the sidebar. You won’t be able to miss it: it will be by far the single biggest menu over there.

There is also a “Books We Read” and a “Miscellaneous” category. The first one gives us a chance to talk about the books we’re reading. The second one is, well, miscellaneous. Think off-topic chats over coffee.

Put it to use, folks!
