0130 – 0330 Streaking and\or skinny dipping in Vaduz City Square
Back in June in Vaduz, Tinner had mentioned that Khan had taken two prototype rotors for the P-2 centrifuge from his stock in Pakistan and planned to use them for manufacturing the advanced version for Libya, and possibly Iran.
For the meeting with the Tinners, Kinsman chose Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, the tiny principality of about sixty square miles bordered on its west by Switzerland and on the east by Austria, for the meeting with the Tinner family.
But in Vaduz, the final price tag went up dramatically.
Mad Dog, who was using a cover name of Jim Kinsman, was in Vaduz to supervise the sessions.
But the early meetings were only the preliminaries to Vaduz.
They also explained again, as they had in Vaduz, that the most complex components for the centrifuges had been manufactured by the Tinners at their own factory in Switzerland.
On the morning of June 16, when the Tinners drove the short distance to a quiet hotel in Vaduz, the intention was to keep them there as long as necessary to extract as much information as possible.
WITH THE NEW PARTNERSHIP BOUGHT and paid for, the Vaduz debriefings ended on June 25.
Kinsman brought a team of CIA experts and a nuclear weapons specialist from the national laboratory at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to Vaduz for the meetings.
