Pakistan Shows Little Appetite for Pursuing Khan

More than two years ago, Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan confessed and apologized for passing nuclear secrets to North Korea, Libya and Iran.

Since then, he has been under house arrest. A dozen of his aides were also detained, but they have all been released.

Pakistan says the Khan case is closed. And despite everything happening in Iran and North Korea, Pakistani security officials say Khan hasn't been questioned in months.
