Dangerous Duo? Inspectors Check if Russian Gave Nuke Aid

A rogue Russian nuclear scientist working with a Middle Eastern government to develop a nuclear weapon sounds like a plot from 24, but it could be reality. The New York Times reports that inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency are investigating allegations that a Russian nuclear scientist helped Iran conduct complex experiments, in order to help Iran eventually detonate a nuclear weapon. The agency believes that the scientist was not working on behalf of the Russian government.

European and American officials say the new document allegedly showing the Russian's assistance adds to existing evidence that Iran has conducted nuclear experiments. Iran says the document is a forgery, and that it has not conducted experiments related to nuclear weapons.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russians got paid to assist Iran in building atomic weapons. Hopefully countries with nuclear weapons can find effective ways of securing valuable and dangerous information held inside the minds of scientists.

This doesn't surprise me. I don't know why, but I have never bought into the U.S.'s "good relations" with Russia (like the Bush/Putin relationship).

Um, scary. Why did I just hear about the Palin investigation, something about some sport, and an increase in the sale of safes on the radio this morning, but not this?
