Oh, _that-s_ where those weapons of mass destruction were! I love how the neo-cons who flog Isreal as the only democracy in the Middle East have studiously ignored them acting, well, just like the Soviet Union with gulags and everything.
Vanunu was kidnapped in 1986 by Israeli agents in Rome, after he revealed to the world evidence of Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program.
A technician at the Dimona nuclear reactor in the Negev desert for nine years, Vanunu came to oppose Israel’s weapons program. In 1986 he gave pictures from Dimona and an interview to London’s Sunday Times that exposed the extent of Israel’s nuclear arms arsenal.
He was sentenced to 18 years jail for treason.
Vanunu has always maintained that he had only confirmed what the world already knew.
So you got your good nuclear friends Pakistan who sell to North Korea, and your good nuclear friends who sold to South Africa (back before they became a regieme which became somewhat unpredictable). Geez, we can’t find these nuckular weapons anywhere.
