Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry today issued a statement rejecting claims from the Atlantic Magazine that they were afraid the US might attempt to seize their nuclear weapons, saying that the whole story was “pure fiction.”
The reports came in a Jeffrey Goldberg and Marc Ambinder article titled “The Ally From Hell,” which condemned Pakistan for hosting Osama bin Laden and accused them of sponsoring “terrorists who attack American troops.”
The article speculates that the US might be planning to steal the nation’s nuclear weapons to prevent them from being stolen by someone else. The Foreign Ministry insisted they should not underestimate Pakistan’s ability to defend itself.
Likewise, officials dismissed the idea that their nuclear arsenal was being handled in an insecure manner, citing reports earlier last week which claimed that Pakistan was moving nuclear weapons in the government equivalent of UPS vans, an idea the Foreign Ministry termed an effort to “mislead opinion.“

Well he won't be last person to describe Jeffrey 'concentration camp guard' Goldberg's writings as 'pure fiction"…..
Actually, I think any thinking person would approve of US plans to try to steal those nukes, so long as the attempt is not actually made but is 'loudly' leaked to the people in charge of them. In fact I think we should have plans, wargaming, to steal our own nukes. Nothing prepares a defense like a serious threat.
We also should be planning to try to steal Israel's nukes.
Goldberg is full of it. When are they going to realize that Pakistan is suffering more because of this factious war on terror, dreamed up by terrorists themselves. It's Pakistan that has an ally from hell. Such idiots should be taken to some distance planet until they evolve into better form of life.
