I severely protest the distribution of clear US-military propaganda
distributed at RADSAFE again. This is not even a forwarding of some
propaganda, because no source is given. 

I do not know, what BCCI means. No independent country in this world is
obliged to give any whatever information to the USA until it has been
established by international law to be provided to international bodies. The
further comments that Abu Dhabi has "failed" to "provide the USA with
information" is therefore absolutely unacceptable. 

Would anybody on RADSAFE please stop this US propaganda.

"U.A.E. Foreign Affairs Minister Sheik Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan

The al-Nahyan family-owned country of Abu Dhabi should be compelled to give
up the records it has on BCCI before being allowed to purchase nuclear
technology. BCCI was neck-deep in the A. Q. Khan network along with other
black market nuclear technology and conventional arms dealers, drug
traffickers and money launderers. After BCCI's collapse, its international
headquarters, records and remaining officers where removed from London to
Abu Dhabi to prevent US and other investigators from gaining access.

According to the Executive Summary of the Report to the Senate Committee on
Foreign Relations by Senator John Kerry and Senator Hank Brown,December
1992  (

"From November, 1990 through the present, Abu Dhabi has failed to provide
documents and witnesses to U.S. law enforcement authorities and to the
Congress, despite repeated commitments to do so. Instead, it has actively
prevented U.S. investigators from having access to vital information
necessary to investigate BCCI's global wrongdoing."

Neither Abu Dhabi, nor the al-Nahyan family should be trusted with nuclear
technology if they aren't willing to come clean on what it knows about
BCCI's operations.
