Armageddon

Someone’s blockbuster plot is assembling itself in Pakistan. Officials are openly talking about the possibility of a coup, or of radicals within the military taking over the country’s nuclear arsenal.

As usual Seymour Hersh has elicited some striking off-the-record comments.  From a “Special Forces advisor”:

We are playing into Al Qaeda’s deep game here.  If we blow it, Al Qaeda could come in and scoop up a nuke or two … The Pakistan military knows that if there’s any kind of instability there will be a traffic jam to seize their nukes.

That’s a nice image for the elevator pitch.
