A 14-lesson manual compromised of over 250-pages of text and illustrations, which provides lectures of the history, chemical and physical properties, instruction, and application of nuclear radium bombs, electromagnetic bombs (E-bombs), and classical explosives and rockets, was recently distributed to members of jihadist e-groups.
Each lesson, prefaced by the statement: Nuclear weapons and rockets might be based on technology of last centurys mid-forties, but the crusading helpers of the devil, curse of Allah upon them, are bent on depriving the Mujahideen of this weapon, seems to have been translated from myriad sources into Arabic, as a means that the author uses to transmit his understanding that the strategic balance of forces in the military field of the mujahideen will not change without a significant scientific advance. In addition, the lessons are steeped in extensive theoretical background of the weapons, accompanied with step-by-step procedures for their composition.
The E-bomb, in particular, is ascribed a special status by the author, as the [most] powerful and effective design of nuclear bombs, which is composed of a tube, coiled wire, C4, and an x-ray generator. Further, the author stresses: In any case, a nuclear weapon is a bomb of special qualities, and it requires means to transfer it to its final destination: either it is placed within a plane, or inside a missile. Hence is derived the importance of studying missiles, as a means of transporting and launching [nuclear bombs].

--I think we are missing a few steps here---

Yes, they will need to take over a country advanced enough to produce nuclear weapons. Pakistan is a prime candidate. Of course, they already have Iran.
A fellow can pick that stuff up and the local Ace Hardware, can't he? Or, failing that, the nearest Home Depot, right? What?!
Explain to me again why we don't nuke them first.
Federals meaning Mexican police or military who cover the drug/illegal/slave trade routes into the US, not US officials. Sorry, too many rumrunners.
How to make a nuclear bomb:
First, obtain a shaped plutonium or enriched uranium core surrounded by a properly machined explosive sheath that when detonated will compress the core to a sufficient density that detonation occurs, then ...
Exactly my thought ... 250 pages ? Does this "Nuclear Weapons for Dummies" have a bright yellow cover ?
