Wikileaks: “Nuclear weapons at Kleine Brogel”

Among the thousands of secrets disclosed earlier this week by Wikileaks is the confirmation that NATO has nuclear weapons stationed at the Kleine Brogel airbase in Limburg Province.

Peace-campaigners have suspected for years that Kleine Brogel was being used to store nuclear weapons.

Nevertheless, successive Belgian federal governments have always refused to discuss the issue.

The information comes from a secret telex sent from the American Embassy in Berlin to the State Department in Washington in November 2009.

The telex also talked of NATO having nuclear weapons stationed in Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey.
