From A.Q. Khan to … DSK?


One of the most striking changes to Newsweek in recent months has been the influx of celebrity authors. The current issue alone contains contributions from Gordon Brown, Cindy McCain, Betty White, and A.Q. Khan, the Pakistani scientist who sold nuclear secrets to Iran, Libya, and North Korea; he penned an article titled, “I Saved My Country From Nuclear Blackmail.” The New Republic has obtained a copy of the table of contents for Newsweek’s next issue:
