Jeff is lucky to be out of town. It’s bad form to crow about one’s own work, but those of us gathered around the campfire while he’s in Seoul can certainly do it for him.
Monday’s New York Times carries a story by Broad and Sanger about the Swiss Family Tinner, how the CIA flipped the Tinners to bring A.Q. Khan low, the sabotage of Iran’s (and Libya’s) centrifuge programs, and how the Swiss authorities were swayed to destroy the evidence in the Tinner case. It’s a good, juicy piece that ties a number of things together.
Some of it should sound familiar, too.
