General Information
A.Q. Khan -- a rogue Pakistani scientist - has done more than any other person or country to spread nuclear weapons around the world. Name a nuclear hotspot -- and Khan's clients are there. Iran. North Korea. Libya. And perhaps the deadliest potential customer.a terrorist network. willing to make its own nuclear jihad.
This is the story of one man's deadly legacy that spread around the world. How he managed to get away with it for so long . and how the nuclear seeds he helped plant could explode anytime, anywhere.
A.Q. Khan has changed the rules of the nuclear game forever. The first nuclear age was about great powers facing off against each other. It was terrifying, but at least everybody knew the rules.
In the second nuclear age, in the age of A.Q. Khan, there is no return address and so there is no deterrence. The bomb could come in a backpack, in a briefcase, in an oxcart. In the second nuclear age, we're seeing the privatization of the atomic bomb. The outsourcing of the bomb. It's a much more frightening world.
Award Winner - This film has won an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for broadcast journalism. Aired on April 20, 2006.
