Don't get too excited about this:

THE HIROSHIMIC IMPOSTURE
Behind The Lines - Dr. Jack Wheeler
Thursday, July 14, 2005
So many of you have asked me about an alleged Al Qaeda plan called “American Hiroshima” – the multiple detonation of nukes smuggled in to the US – that I must respond, even though some very good friends of mine for whom I have high regard have been taken in by the fellow who’s making the claim.


That would be Paul L. Williams, who has been peddling this stuff for a long time. The funniest example is Williams’ claim that “documents captured in Afghanistan show that Al Qaeda had plans to assemble nuclear weapons with fissile material purchased on the black market.” A nuclear scientist friend of mine with all the requisite Pentagon security clearances could not stop laughing when I discussed this with him.


“I’ve seen those documents,” he told me, “and believe it or not, they are copied from an article in a science humor magazine called The Journal of Irreproducible Results. It was entitled “How to Build an Atom Bomb,” and these Al Qaeda-Taliban idiots didn’t know it was a put-on. It’s full of physics jargon and seems impressive – but when the article instructs you to make the shock wave focusing lens out of Playdough, you’ve got to be a retard not to get the gag. Living in an Afghan cave can do that to you.”

The rest of the article further debunks other claims related to this whole "American Hiroshima" theory.
