Daily Times, 16th May
LAHORE: American intelligence sources say the military’s chief terrorist-hunting squad, operating in Afghanistan, is working on a secondary mission to secure nuclear arsenals if the Taliban or Al Qaeda overwhelm Pakistan.
The US has a detailed plan for infiltrating Pakistan and securing its mobile arsenal of nuclear warheads if it appears that the country is about to fall under the control of the Taliban, Al Qaeda or other extremists.US intelligence sources told Fox the operation would be conducted by Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the super-secret commando unit.
Fox cited a US intelligence official in Afghanistan as saying JSOC has been updating its mission plan for “the day President Barack Obama gives the order” to infiltrate Pakistan. “Small units could seize them, disable them and then centralise them in a secure location,” he said. daily times monitor
