"Barlow was relentless in exposing what he saw as US complicity, and in the end he was sacked and smeared as disloyal, mad, a drunk and a philanderer. If he had been listened to, many believe Pakistan might never have got its nuclear bomb".
This may help explain why. The whistle blower was smeared and discredited, and helped sweep U.S. actions under the table.
