The Nuclear Suitcases Of Sheikh Osama Bin Laden - A Christmas Message From Daleel Almojahid
Pipieline News ^ | 27 December 2003

Posted on 12/27/2003 8:11:26 AM PST by Lando Lincoln

The Nuclear Suitcases Of Sheikh Osama Bin Laden - A Christmas Message From Daleel Almojahid

PipeLineNews - Editor's note: As we consider the heightened state of terror awareness, it may be instructive to read a sample of the type of "chatter" that has alarmed the intelligence gathering mechanism of the United States.

It comes from an Internet source called Daleel Almohahid which means roughly, Guide or Directive of the Jihad, in Arabic. Internet message boards such as this one have been increasingly cluttered with such ominous warnings.

This is a remarkable document. Many of the facts claimed by it are either not verifiable or provably incorrect - [nuclear yield figures, weight estimates, portability, etc] - still, if it contains nothing more than pompous boasting, it gives some insight into the Wahabi mindset and what we are up against in this Third World War which is being fought against Islamic fundamentalism.

We did nothing to change the content of this message, except a small amount of editing/formatting and a few clarifications which appear in brackets within the body of the message text.

For a short discussion about the nature of suitcase nuclear devices take the following link:

Do Suitcase Nukes Exist?

In the seventies Russian scientists were ordered to produce and

manufacture small nuclear bombs the size of suit cases by the (KGB) to

destroy the enemy's major targets in the war, like electricity

facilities and bridges, and so on.

These small tactical nuclear suit cases have a destruction power of

about 1000 tones worth of TNT, and that's about 10% of a conventional

nuclear bomb like the ones that America dropped on the cities of

Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

So if Al-Qaida was able to smuggle these suit cases into the United

States this means that its possible to destroy the Congress entirely

and everything as close as half a mile from it, and would eventually

spread out nuclear dust in all the region of Washington!.

These nuclear suit cases have the capability to kill up to 100,000

people from the nuclear dust it spreads, and the affected area will be

a ghost town for a long time to come.

These nuclear suit cases weigh from 30kg to 45 kg [65-100lbs] per suit case, it's

possible for any one to carry it on his back, and it just needs one

person to blow it up.

There is also another kind of nuclear suit cases that are made up of

only nuclear radiation waste, these kind of bombs just need normal

explosives to spread out the radiation that will eventually destroy

life in a wide area.

What does the American administration know and hiding from the

American public?

American Intelligence have noted that Osama bin laden has tried to buy

enriched uranium in 1993, but other intelligence discovered that Osama

Bin Laden was actually able of buying tactical nuclear weapons from

the black market and that's directly after the collapse of the former

Soviet Union. These weapons were smuggled out from the factory's and production facilities that have been closed with out a watching eye.

Other intelligence have told the US that bin laden was able of buying

more than 20 nuclear suit cases for an amount of 30 million US

dollars, and the Russian mafia was responsible for the smuggling of

these suit cases out of the former Soviet Union and they succeeded.

Other intelligence came out from a former Al-Qaida operative the

Sudanese Jamal Ahmad Al-Fadl that was held for the blowing up of the

two American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, he noted to the French news paper (express) that he looked for nuclear material on the behalf

of Al-Qaida in Sudan and was capable of finding what he was looking

for, after that he called a high Al-Qaida operative and sent him the

details of what he has found. Al-Fadl said that Al-Qaida was very

happy from what he has found and sent him 10,000$ and told him we will

continue the buying. And so they did!

In 1997, the American administration woke up from its sleep after a

press release from General Alexander Leped [Alexander Lebed] the adviser of the former

Russian President Bores Yalitsen [former Russian President Boris Yeltsin] speaking in an interview with an

American news channel saying (the Former Soviet Union has lost 100

small nuclear suite cases since the fall of the former Soviet Union

and that they don't know where they have disappeared to!!)

After that interview directly the Russians issued a statement saying

that General Alexander Leped was lying and accused him of stupidity

and that he was trying to have some political publicity.

But the strange thing in this story is that General Alexander Leped

was killed later on in a chopper crash in Siberia in 2002! And the

official statement from the Russian authority's to the cause of the

crash was that the shopper bulged into electricity cables due to bad

weather!!!

After the blessed attacks of 9-11 Osama bin laden was Quoted saying to

a Pakistani news paper (Al-fager)

"Al-Qaida has nuclear and chemical weapons and these weapons are there for defense purposes" and added we would use them against the United States if they use against us any sort of weapons like these."

American intelligence also knows that Al-Qaida has Nuclear

Capabilities, after Bin Sheba was detained and through interrogations

he confessed that Al-Qaida does in fact have a small arsenal of

nuclear weapons ready to be deployed and used.

When Taliban started its fast evacuation from parts of Afghanistan it

left behind it traces of paper that indicated to the American

intelligence that Al-Qaida has knowledge about nuclear and chemical

weapons. One of these papers that were found had the titled (the big

bombs) and it describes exactly how to produce a nuclear explosions in

an easy method. It was then certain to the American intelligence team

that Al-Qaida has probably been able of producing what's called ( a

nuclear radiation explosion bomb) which if deployed would make a huge

area a ghost town.

Why are we publishing all this to you?

We want the American people to start opining their eyes before it's

too late to how their government is lying to them every day, although

they know who Al-Qaida is! They know its Capabilities. America thought

that it can be one day the strongest power in the world and that no

one would be able to stand against her, but God has his ways also and

knows how to break a huge nation with a few small and weak followers.

Wake up Americans, your country was trying to be the police man of the

world, taking everything for granted as if every one on this planet is

its slave! But no, that will never be or happen, not now and not in a

million years to come.

America was made up with a huge army that would face and destroy huge

army's like her, but it could never win a war with ghosts that stand

everywhere and nowhere standing up for this so called great nation!!

Always keep in you're your mind that what goes around comes around.

Always remember how your great nation dropped nuclear weapons without any kind of sympathy what so ever on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing millions of children, men, and women, what a great

nation!! So don't be surprised if God decides to send you the same

revenge!! God is fair don't you think!

Praise to God almighty as we move closer to a new Islamic era whether you like it or not.

Yes, there were stories at the time that al Qaeda was taken in by a fake site on how to make a nuclear bomb. That certainly suggests either ignorance on the part of this writer or the desire to make up a threatening story.

I agree that this writer probably knows nothing and is dreaming a typical Islamic daydream of killing and vengeance. BUT the business with General Lebed is a bit more worrying. As far as I know, the nuclear suitcase story has never either been confirmed or disproven. It is, certainly, worrying, because there was a time when the Russian mafia might indeed have been willing to sell that sort of stuff to bin Ladin, and bin Ladin is known to have had several hundred million dollars when he left Saudi Arabia.

Purchasing these weapons is one matter, maintaining them over time is another.

We need to let these people flush the Saudi govenment like they want to. These idiots would then have a home they could congregate in & set up an AQ govt. We would then have a nation state as a target and could vaporize Riyadh, Mecca, and Medina as part of war against a nation.

This is the premise of the overall article. While it is something that every thinking person knows, it again reinforces the notion that these extremists will use or utilize any weapon they get their filthy mitts on. Meanwhile, we have the handwringing and lamenting of the Deans, Hillarys, Kerrys and their leftist brethren. These leftists would like nothing better than hunkering down in their root cellars with their French wine and brie while discussing such pseudo-intellectual topics as the spirituality of orgasm. All while hoping that the world understands that "war never settled anything". Pathetic lot, the left.

a little known fact is that we have radiation detection equiment in major cities to detect this. It is a big secret on where and how many places do this, but there was a "head up" in the medical literature about a man who received radioactive iodine for cancer of the thyroid being arrested not once but twice because he was radioactive...(unlike other radiation treatment, RA I 131 stays in the body a few days after you drink it).

Tiny Nukes-- the backpack threat

To: Lando Lincoln
Backpack nukes I know nothing about. I suspect that if Islam had a deliverable device they would have used it within a year of getting it.

But a dirty bomb yields to analysis. If you have enough radioactive junk to seriously contaminate, say, an acre of land to the point where people would be harmed from a three hour exposure, spread out thinly- then you scrape it all up in one pile a foot square, the dose rate from the material will go up by a factor of 40,000 or so.

How are you going to carry it around? Unshielded, it would kill you quickly. And if you shield it with a foot of lead on each side, the problem gets worse in that it would weigh tons and require a truck.

So a dirty bomb only works as long as the hysterical American media can frighten people- "The radiation rate in this block is well over 120 dpm/square meter!"

From a military viewpoint (area denial, casualties) the dirty part of a dirty bomb is not that significant.

Must be more then changing the oil every 6mo. on your mini nuke? What degrades and how would it be replaced?

At least 10 years ago I read a very good science fiction story about a terrorist group trying to make a dirty bomb. They were eventually done in by the handling and fabrication of the material. I believe they were trying to grind it into a powder for maximum dispersal.

Very hyperbolic.
The suitcase nukes are 5% the power of the WWII bombs, but are supposedly more destreuctive, killing more people in the US than the originals did in the high density of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and make them unlivable for longer.

Yes, they could wipe out Congress, or the Pentagon, or the Whitehouse, but they could not destroy a city, and would only convince all the American people that the only good Muslim was a dead muslim, and we do have the nuclear capability to make that come true.

Don't mind me, I was just brainstorming.

I believe the triggering mechanism needs periodic Mx. Also, there is no way to test these devices. If someone made 10 & tested one, they could assume the bombs worked...these morons can't do that. BAsed on the info, there is no way these islamonuts know what they have...bombs moved from the Russian mafia? Could be full of radioactive cow sh*t.

This is ridiculuous if such arms existed and were in the hands of terrorists, we'd be able to say with certainty whether the 7,342,783,111,235,198,001,177,199,364,354th digit of PI was odd or even. Therefore, heretofore and henceforth these weapons do not exist and they are not in the hands of terrorists.

Let' dispel this nonsense once and for all with a instructive post from Southack:

You can't detonate an old Soviet nuke from the 1970's. The whole concept of long-missing "suitcase" nukes being hidden away to be used at some point in the future by rogue terrorists is fundamentally (religious pun intended) flawed. Let me put this into layman's terms.

For a nuke to detonate rather than "fizzle," you've got to have a precisely shaped fissionable outer shell or globe and a precisely shaped core. Most nuke designs, especially the *smaller* (read: suitcase sized) ones also require a nuclear "trigger" (which is made up of a substance that emits large quantities of neutrons at high speeds...a fact of science that simultaneously causes the trigger to decay rapidly with a very short "half life").

So for the radioactive components of a nuke, you've got to have precise shapes, and you've got to detonate the device *before* the radioactive elements decay past a certain point. The "trigger" decays the fastest, and it is reasonable to say that most atomic triggers are going to be worthless after 120 days. The core typically decays much slower, and after some number of years will have introduced numerous atomic impurities into itself, and its remaining fissionable material will gradually cease to be over the "critical mass" threshold. The globe/shell typically decays the slowest of all, but even it will have impurities being introduced into itself over the years, impurities that *will* increase the likelihood of getting a "fizzle" rather than a boom.

But wait, there's more!

These radioactive elements wreck havoc upon the electronic components used to detonate the nuclear bomb. Every day that the wiring and circuit components are exposed to this radiation reduces the likelihood of the electronics working as designed. Ditto for the effects of long-term radiation on the convention explosive that are used to initiate the nuclear chain reactions.

So for these basic reasons and many others, nuclear warheads/bombs require an enormous amount of constant maintenance.

Nukes are *NOT* like old WW2 bombs that shrimpers pull up from the sea in their nets every now and again. You don't just ignore a nuke for decades and then think that it will go BOOM!

After 4 months without maintenance, you've got about a 50-50 chance of a fizzle instead of a BOOM.

Each day after that dramatically reduces the chances of the device working as designed. Even rust or normal metallic corrosion will greatly reduce the chances of such an atomic device being anything more than a dirty bomb.

And just for the record: Uranium and Plutonium *are* metals. They are also very brittle, another factor to consider.

So anyone running around claiming that they've got old "suitcase" nukes from the Soviet Union (deceased since 1989) is either patently uneducated on atomic weapons *OR* simply bluffing.

Even if they knew the codes to activate the device, if it is more than 4 months out of maintenance it will probably just fizzle and scare the crap out of every news anchor in NYC.

And this isn't the sort of maintenance that can be performed inside someone's garage, either.



Those who know, don't talk. Those who talk, don't know.

When an AyRab is weak, he blusters. When he is strong, he's silent.

Hey Laz....I'm certainly not an expert - but from what I know, I agree with Southack's post. Again, however, the premise of the article is that these extremists will use whatever weapon is at their disposal. To me, this supports the so-called Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive war on terrorism. To the kooks on the left, they just don't get it.

On another note, while I'm not an alarmist, I sense that the Administration is spooked about something. Maybe the flights cancelled from Paris, or maybe something else.

A search of Yahoo groups shows about 21 "Daleel"-related groups. As you said, he reincarnates his "group" every so often, so he will pop up again soon. That last one only lasted from about Dec. 6th (or so) to Dec. 25th.

For those who don't know, this "Daleel" site is one of the "disappearing" Al Qaeda websites that you hear our terrorist-trackers talking about.

Yup. Laz is right. They need constant maintenance. But that is the one thing that worries me. AQ may be evil, but not stupid. You'd think they'd know this. Question? Could they do the maintenance or repair? What about Islamofacists from Pakistan with nuclear talents?

Either they don't have them or can't get them to work--evidence, we haven't been nuked--or they're waiting for that special moment--like AQ has done in the past--waiting 2-3 years between major attacks. However, my gut tells me if they had them (working nukes), they'd of used them by now. It was one thing to wait every few years when they had a safe haven in Afghanistan, but it is another to wait while your ass is getting righteously kicked by the US.

I mean, while we're attacking them we could stumble upon their operations and put an end to it there and then. So better to use what they have now rather than wait and lose the asset. That window was in the Fall/Winter of 2001.

The Mk-54 Davy Crockett was designed to be fired from the M-388 recoilless rifle. Weighing only 23 kg the warhead, in its casing, was 400 mm by 273 mm. It was first tested in October 1958 as part of Operation Hardtack and yielded 10 tons, later developments increased that to 1 kt. 400 Mk-54 warheads were produced from 1961-65 and the last was withdraw in 1971.

The "use it or lose it" argument is probably being heard a lot in al-Quida circles. If they do not "produce" it's hard for the rest of the Muslim world to take them seriously, and the ardor of their financial contributors may wane

Please stop aiding this moron with the spreading of its intended fear mongering tactics. All are aware of its existence, interested parties can access its site. I don't understand why FR has to help spread this crap on a daily basis.

Stop promoting Daleel and his messages.

If not we are no better than Yahoo which we complain/don't understand why they do not prohibit or take so long to shut this islamic fanatic down.

And yes I understand it has been zapped from Yahoo for the time being.

>>...nuclear warheads/bombs require an enormous amount of constant maintenance

Well written post. VERY believable, and reassuring. Thanks!

I used to work at a semiconductor plant that hardened
electronics so it could better withstand radiation. I
TOTALLY agree the electronics in an old bomb would be
useless JUNK after just a year or two.

Your point, while having some validity, misses an important element. Not everyone is as knowledgeable of world events and happenings as some at FR. In fact, many among the masses scarcely know where Iraq is these days and, at best, they get their news from the Rathers, Brokaws and Jennings of the world. This site has many lurkers and first-time visitors. These types of posts are useful to the extent that it demonstrates the true dangers of the world and it reinforces the notion that there are those bent on our destruction. Some would believe, as the Deans, Kennedys, Hillarys, et al, are constantly preaching, that the War on Terror is a fabrication by the right, the Bush administration, etc.

I don't intend this to sound pretentious. We all learn something new everyday, hopefully. The choir usually knows the message of the preacher yet they attend anyway. And, they hope that the first time visitor returns.
