A.Q. Khan, Physicist Turned Nuclear Proliferator, Mulls Political Run in Pakistan

He's started a new party and called his country a banana republic

Abdul Qadeer Khan, still lionised as the father of Pakistan's atomic bomb despite his fall from grace in 2004, may have some appeal ahead of elections due next year.
