'Tangible proof' al-Qaida deploying nukes (Bombshell presentation)
WorldNetDaily ^ | 4/25/06 | WorldNetDaily.com

Posted on 04/25/2006 6:50:43 AM PDT by demkicker

A terrorism symposium featuring leading experts will begin with presentation of "tangible proof" al-Qaida not only has developed an arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons but also has begun to deploy them for use in its jihad against the United States and Israel.

Paul L. Williams, author of "The Al Connection" and "The Dunces of Doomsday," will present his findings at the National Press Club in Washington at the conclusion of a public debate with Wall Street Journal correspondent Richard Miniter on al-Qaida's nuclear weaponry.

The debate, Friday at 10 a.m., will be moderated by Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard and regular contributor to the Fox News Channel. The public is invited to attend.

The organizers say the event is timely, "with increased anxiety over demands for a pullout from Iraq, the nuclear developments in Iran and North Korea, the failure of our government to secure the borders and our country's fledgling, incomprehensive effort at homeland security."

Epstein believes the majority of Americans disapprove of both the "cut-and-run policy" proposed by many leading Democrats and the "compassionate conservative" approach of the Bush administration, favoring instead a "firm and decisive military action with no apologies to Russia, China, France, Germany, Saudi Arabia or the United Nations."

"I am convinced that the threat we are currently facing from radical Islam greatly surpasses that which was posed by the Third Reich," Epstein said.

Anyone interested in attending, Epstein added, should contact America's Truth Forum at its website or by calling 866-709-3474.

The event offers the following speakers (continued):

If they had them, they would have used them.

I've read Paul Williams' books and I think he's got too much time on his hands. If any of this information he's revealing is true, he's be in a dark dungeon somewhere, courtesy of Langley.

Al Qaeda's Suitcase Nukes: A Monumental Debate at the National Press Club, Sponsored by America's Truth Forum

A debate between Richard Miniter, Fox News commentator and author of "Disinformation: 22 Media Myths That Undermine the War on Terror,” and Paul L. Williams, Ph.D., award-winning journalist and author of "The Al Qaeda Connection," and "The Dunces of Doomsday," on the subject of al Qaeda's possession of suitcase nuclear weapons will take place on Friday, April 28, at 10 a.m. in the Murrow Room of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

The debate will be monitored by Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard and co-host of "The Beltway Boys."

The importance of the debate has been heightened by Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and other al Qaeda operatives in custody who testify to Osama bin Laden's plan for an American Hiroshima, an event that calls for the detonation of seven tactical nuclear weapons in seven major American cities in the near future. These plans have resulted in bin Laden's acquisition of a fatwa from Saudi clerics that permit the terrorist group to kill ten million American civilians.

The clash between these two leading counter-terrorism experts is sponsored by Dr. Hugh Cort, a physician and prominent political activist, and Jeffrey Epstein, president of America's Truth Forum.

Following the debate, there will be a brief press conference in which Dr. Paul Williams will release startling, newly discovered information concerning al Qaeda's nuclear arsenal.

The debate will be held in conjunction with the Truth Forum's Symposium on the Roots of Terrorism at the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington, Va. The two-day event also includes a Friday night VIP reception with former CIA chief James Woolsey at 7 p.m., and a line-up on Saturday of such noted speakers, authors, and terrorism experts as Dr. Harvey Kushner, Robert Spencer, Ken Timmerman, David Horowitz, and many others.

you are wrong,

they had the ability to hijack an airplane years ago, but they waited and planned, I believe documented five years or more to carry it out at the right time, so they could hijack multiple planes and drash into multiple targets simultaneously.

One small tactical nuke in one major city, big problem; but the US would survive.

Three or four tactical nukes set off one day (one week, etc)at a time would effectively end the US as we know it.

Never underestimate the enemy.

The response to this would be multiple air bursts (ie. one thousand times larger than the tac nukes) over Pakistan, North Korea and anyone else even suspected of supplying the materials to Al-Qaeda. It would be the end of the world as we know it. The death toll would be over one hundred million.

SO WHAT? with the US economy devastated and the country in chaos.

In case you missed it, it is the avowed intention of the Islamofascists to see the US economy devastated and the country in chaos.

So what if they then get nuked, don't you see they still win. What you think rationally as them losing, they see as winning. They have NOTHING to lose we have EVERYTHING to lose.

If it ever happens it will be game set and match to them.

General Tommy Franks is on record as stating that in the event of a WMD attack on the United States by terrorists, that the most likely and immediate result would be an imposition of martial law, suspension of the Constitution, and we would have a military government for the duration.

Now there is a silver lining to that, and one needs only to think about Mary McCarthy and her ilk to figure out what that means.

Could be he hasn't yet figured out a way to deploy them, but I heartily agree with you that THEY WILL.............

You have studied this situation well and yes I too believe this is their plan, and with the help of our beloved elected having done little to stop the enemy advance into our nation, I too see this as a very real possibility.

I would like to be more optomistic but I believe our beloved elected have underestimated the enemy.

yes it would have a silver lining, but the a$$holes like McCarthy that contributed to us getting there, will also in a way get what they were aiming for.

If Bin Laden pulled off something like multiple nuclear bombs going off it would be the end of the USA as we know it. In that case I would hope that enough of the country remains intact long enough to completely and totally eradicate our enemies off the face of the earth.

there are many on this forum, that see it happening as an eventuality, the question becomes not IF, but WHEN.

For those that see it as WHEN, the questions is SOONER or LATER.

I believe it will be the first opportunity the Islamists get to bring a plan together.

And they will have many opportunities since we as a country are asleep at the switch.

Unlikely. Sadly, deterrence has little effect on these death-lovers. They have to be rooted out, one by one, and given their wish.

no here you are wrong.

The us economy is built upon the ability to freely spend money, ergo branch banks, ATMs, checks, credit cards, etc.

What would be your first thought when it happens, right after where are the kids and are they safe? It would be:food, water, shelter and MONEY.

You and 100 MILLION other citizens think AT THE SAME TIME, I need to get some cash.

Especially when they are doing a city a day - is your city next, would you flee, need some gas and food, need money.

You really need to think this through.

The Pentagon announced TODAY the formation of
a new 500-man elite fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces.



These Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas boys will be dropped off into Iraq and have been given only the following facts about terrorists:
1. The season opened today.
2. There is no limit.
3. They taste just like chicken.
4. They don't like beer, pickups, country music or Jesus.
5. They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt.

The Pentagon expects the problem in Iraq to be over by Friday.

I agree that this would not be the end of the US, as it would further unite the states, eliminating the political poles. However, it would cause a massive depression, global for that matter.


What could end the US, is if Russia and China decided to take the opportunity to divide the world amongst themselves. We are the ONLY obstacle to them. Islam is simply the useful idiots, the equivalent to early 20th century anarchists.

"If they had them, they would have used them. "

I hope this is so. On the other hand, most of these terrorist groups are a little bit like the fire ants I encountered in south Texas. You'd never get bitten by ONE ant. They'd wait until the whole swarm was on your foot (or wherever) and chomp down all at once. AQ and other terrorist groups like to hit multiple targets at the same time. It's possible that even if they have one or two nukes, they're waiting for three or four--or more. (Worst nightmare scenario.)

I think it depends on what you mean by "as we know it." I think the human spirit in general and the American spirit in particular is incredibly resilient. I do not believe even several nuked cities will cause the country to be destroyed.

The principles upon which the nation was founded - although atrophied by modern society - still exist, and are cherished by many. And they don't depend on gleaming cities to exist or flourish.

I hope my opinion is never tested, since I live in LA and would have to watch the drama play out on a celestial television. :-)

sink,

I was not even thinking of suitcase nukes. The batteries, electronics and neglected tritium refill, would have looooong since rendered them useless.

No I am speaking of a full up plutonium nuke with a shotgun trigger, like the high schooler mocked up for his science fair project (which got him a visit from the feds).

You are not accepting that these guys are facilitated by STATES antithetical to the US.

No suitcase nuke, they will use REAL nukes.

When I say "As we know it" I mean we'd be facing complete military control of the government, suspension of basic liberties out of necessity, martial law, suspension of the Constitution for the forseeable future, In short we would be living in a police state for the rest our lives, and probably for the lives of our great grandchildren.

You're quite right about their goals and their conditions for victory. Destroying the US economy and a significant portion of our energy infrastructure would effectively toss us back into the early nineteenth century.

Our foes are already there. They want things that way - more primitive, if possible.

If they are allowed to win, we're looking at a new Dark Age.
