Tracking the Trade in Illicit Nuclear Weapons

David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, physicist,
and former UN weapons inspector, will join us for a discussion on the illicit
trade in nuclear weapons.  The nuclear blackmarket includes the trade in expertise, technologies,
components and materials.  The A.Q. Khan network operated
in over 30 countries, often exploiting loopholes in national export regulations,
but most of those involved have never been prosecuted. Nuclear smuggling has
continued unabated, and there are indicators that these networks are wider and
more pervasive than is often understood. Why is the illicit nuclear trade so
dangerous, why is it so persistent, and what can the US and
the international community do to thwart it?
