While the event has only a tangetial connection to Japan-- via the role Dr. A. Q. Khan might have played in instigating the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's as-yet-unproven highly enriched uranium (HEU) program, the purported discovery of which unraveled the 1994 Agreed Framework that had been keeping the DPRK's plutonium program under lock and key -- the release of Dr. Khan by Pakistan's Supreme Court seems a slap in the face of global efforts at non-proliferation.

Ejaz Haider of the Daily Times of Pakistan does a heck of a job putting the release in perspective.
