Skip to comments.Al-Qaeda 'planning for nuclear attack'
Posted on 11/13/2006 11:51:01 PM PST by MadIvan
Al-QAEDA is determined to acquire the technology to carry out a nuclear attack on the West, a senior Foreign Office official warned yesterday.
She said that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network was trawling the world for the materials and know-how to mount an attack using nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
The latest warning echoes the remarks last week of the MI5 director-general, Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, that future terror attacks in Britain could involve weapons of mass destruction.
Asked if she had any doubt that al-Qaeda wanted to obtain the materials to carry out a nuclear attack on the West, the Foreign Office official told reporters at Westminster: "No doubt at all".
She said that terrorists were seeking the means to mount a range of attacks using chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear devices.
"We know that the aspiration is there, we know attempts to gather materials are there, we know that attempts to gather technologies are there," she said.
The latest warning comes as the government is preparing to make security a key theme of its legislative programme for the next parliamentary session, to be set out in the Queen's Speech tomorrow.
OK, Nancy, you've told us W has been doing it wrong for five years--where's YOUR plan to fight Al Qaeda?
There's nothing to worry about. Reports like this are just the neocons using their "scare tactics"!
she doesn't answer to "nancy" any more...you have to call her madame speaker to get a response
One thing we have been doing is setting up radiation monitors at ports. etc.
I was at a place where they were testing them (big things that container trucks drive under. The guy had a paper cup of liquid, would get in his car and drive through, get out and tweak some dials - drive through again, etc. It was amazing that this stuff that he was carrying (bare hands, street clothes, etc.) was enough to set off the sensors.
Surrender! The Democritters have been telling us all along that this is their plan. Amazing that now the election is over, the MSM is reporting the truth about what Freeper's have known all along. The Muslims want to kill us.
The Dr. Doolittle approach?
You know, "Talk to the animals...."
Yea and the ecomony is so good there aren't enough skilled workers for all the jobs available as reported tonight on the radio !
"Rise early and slay them first."
I wonder if Nancy thinks this is overkill, since Al Qaeda isn't really that big a deal.
Some unidentified person says Al Quaeda wants to bomb us. Now that's what I call News.
This could be all settled if she and other liberal women join the harem of Bin Laden(or whoever is in charge now.) Nuke for liberal harem, sounds like a bargain to me.
NANCY! FORGET ABOUT BUSH! ....SAVE US!!!
they aint getting any WMDs from Iraq anytime soon thats for sure!
What concerns me is that even after a >9/11 attack, who would we attack? Is there a possiblity that our hands would be tied because we couldn't pinpoint a responsible nation? Al Queada is in many countries - if a cell in London pulls it off, are we going to bomb London? Personally, I'd like to get rid of all of these creeps, but I am afraid we would take that attack and hold more memorial services, especially if Dims are in charge.
You mean "Shrieker of the House"?
Interesting, cause "BLAIR SAYS IRAN AND SYRIA CAN BE 'PARTNERS FOR PEACE'..."
Her plan is clear; Withdraw the troops, leave Iraq, Iran, N.Korea, and terror alone, and die happily thereafter. But not before some daily fundraisers to boost Hillary Presidential campaign first.
