A terrorist attack using nuclear weapons is an imminent and immediate threat to the United States, said Harvard University professor Graham Allison during his lecture Monday in the School of Management.
Terrorists setting off a 10-kiloton nuclear bomb in Boston's Statehouse would vaporize everything within one-third of a mile, he said.
The lecture, part of the College of Communication's Distinguished Lecture Series, attracted hundreds of Boston University students as Allison addressed his new book, Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe.
COM Journalism Chair Robert Zelnick said he hoped the lecture would create public awareness and help students keep up with current events.
"Before 9/11, the criticism was that not enough attention was called to the danger of a nuclear attack," he said.
COM freshman Chris Grannon said the lecture was "extremely relevant to everyday life because terrorism is a big threat."
Allison, a professor in Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government declared the threat of a nuclear attack immediate, saying he believes Osama bin Laden wants to kill four million Americans, including two million American children, in order to balance out the ratio of Muslims killed by a "Zionist-Christian crusade."

World's rarest newspaper headline..."Psychic win Lottery"
If the Islamofascists had the capacity to do this, they would have done it long ago.
EXCUSE ME? We have NOT killed anywhere near that many muslims; if anything MUSLIMS have killed more muslims (and non-muslims!).
He may be accurate on the potential nuclear terror dangers, but he sounds like a bowelmove.org pinhead.
"Graham Allison, a professor at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and an adviser to John Kerry. Allison's indictment of the Iraq war..."
Wishful thinking on his part.
Harvard? This nut is teaching at one of our most prestigeous universities?
Ok, so now public awareness is raised. Now what?
Time to dig our fallout shelters?
Oh, that wouldn't work at all.
Because, see, if he killed four million Americans, we'd kill four-hundred million Islamics.
