Former President of Pakistan, “Pervez Musharraf,”:http://www.presidentofpakistan.gov.pk/index.php?lang=en&opc=2&sel=4&pId=10 on “CNN last month:”:http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1107/21/sitroom.02.html
bq.. BLITZER: How many nuclear bombs does Pakistan have?
MUSHARRAF: I don’t know.
MUSHARRAF: No idea.
BLITZER: A hundred?
MUSHARRAF: Well, I don’t know. I don’t know.
BLITZER: But you knew when you were the president.
MUSHARRAF: Oh, no…
BLITZER: You wouldn’t even know that as president of Pakistan?
MUSHARRAF: No, not at all. They don’t give me that figure. I mean, why am I concerned whether it is 98 or 89 or something? I am not concerned about the figures.
BLITZER: Let me…
MUSHARRAF: What difference does it make if we are 94 or whether it’s
54 or 94 or 150 or — what does that mean?
p. To be fair, I’m not sure there are that many leaders of states with nuclear weapons who know exactly how many they have.
