Chinese Proliferation To Pakistan?/Test Obama-XIV/G2-X
When the 44th president took air force one heading on his first trip to Asia on November 12, 2009, American journalists dropped a bombshell into the global news media. When Obama landed in Japan on the following day, the Washington Post (by R. Jeffrey Smith and Joby Warrick) published an article titled “A nuclear Power’s Act of Proliferation.” After confirming the authenticity of the material by the Post independently, China did provide the crucial help for Pakistan to develop the nuclear weapon. The materials were provided by Simon Henderson who maintained correspondence with Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan. These materials indicated that there was a secret nuclear deal approved by Mao Zedong and Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in the middle of 1976. In 1982, Deng Xiaoping approved the case by allowing Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan and the others to fly aboard a Pakistani C-130 to Urumqi with highly unusual cargo: enough weapons-grade uranium for two atomic bombs. Interestingly, on 17 November 2009 when both the Chinese and American Presidents held their press conference in Beijing after nearly two hours of talks, no single question was allowed to be asked by journalists.
