Khan Says He Only Offered Libya And Iran "Advice" On Nuclear Weapons.   McClatchy (6/5, Shah) reports, "A.Q. Khan, the renegade nuclear scientist from Pakistan who once admitted helping Iran and Libya obtain nuclear-weapons technology, said Tuesday that he'd only introduced those two 'rogue' regimes to Western businessmen who provided the technology and the know-how for their fledgling nuclear-weapons program." In a telephone interview with McClatchy in Islamabad, "his first with an American news organization, Khan also said that others in Pakistan who'd aided him had gotten away 'scot-free' while he'd become a 'black sheep' for offering advice on nuclear weaponry." But "Khan's protestations of innocence didn't impress Western experts." In the interview, "Khan denied that he'd done anything but offer 'very small advice' on where to acquire the technology." Khan "has no doubts why he and Pakistan have been singled out for international condemnation. 'Muslims were the only religion which threatened the Western civilization. They hate Muslims; they hate Islamic culture. Every Muslim is a terrorist' he said."

      Khan also spoke to the Washington Post (6/5, A10, Rondeaux, 696K). The Post notes the scientist "publicly disavowed his confession, telling reporters that it was coerced." Khan "struck a defiant tone about his role in the development of nuclear technology, denying any wrongdoing and saying he would never talk to US or IAEA officials about his work."
