DECEPTION: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons
The PCR Project and the Middle East Institute invite you to an Authors’ Briefing with Adrian Levy and Catherine Scott-Clark on DECEPTION: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons. DECEPTION chronicles the last 30 years in the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan, and particularly the circumstances under which Pakistan both developed a nuclear weapon and then sold the technology for it to Iran, North Korea, Libya, and others—with the full knowledge of the U.S. government. It is a dramatic story of deception on all sides, not least by four successive U.S. presidents who have proclaimed Pakistan to the American people as our staunch ally, while it has, in fact, been just the opposite. Indeed, the authors—who have built this story over a decade of reporting—make a compelling case that Pakistan is the greatest obstacle to U.S. and world security.
