No one in the Department of Energy takes these threats seriously. The amount of maintenance it takes to keep these bombs in working order is sunstantial. It also very unlikely that they could maintain these weapons without being discovered.

While I agree that the borders should be closed for security reasons, many believe this entire "Sky is Falling" hypothesis is simply about pushing an agenda to close the borders. Creating boogey-man stories is an age-old trick to get create panic to get what you want.

The real fear of nuclear attack on U.S. soil is actually water-borne. A tanker on a ship or a trawler which has allowed the terrorists to maintain the device until detonation. Nuclear terrorism probably is inevitable, but not as descibed by Farah.

yup , I agree with you , however,the likelihood of smallish dirtybombs is disturbing ,...the moonshiners learned how to retrofit heavyduty springs on vehicles so they'd appear normal,large SUVs[Chevy Suburban] don't get stopped all the time as they make their way into cities ,...BTW , I saw a beer truck,independant distributor's name scrawled on the cab door,flying down Broadway right past a NYPD precinct car,clearly WAY OVER the speed limit,not stopped
