Author Paul Williams: Al-Qaida 'Definitely Has Nukes'

America is facing a nuclear attack from al-Qaida terrorists living in the U.S. or crossing our all but unguarded borders, warns Dr. Paul Williams in his chilling new book "The Day of Islam: The Annihilation of America and the Western World."

Remarkably, just hours after NewsMax.com conducted an exclusive interview with the author, U.S. authorities announced the arrest of three terrorists who planned an attack on New York City's JFK airport — which read as if details surrounding the plot had been taken directly from the pages of his book.

Williams, a former FBI consultant and an expert on the subjects of al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden, also is the author of "Osama's Revenge," "The Next 9/11," and "The al-Qaida Connection." He has long maintained that the menace posed by this sinister group of murderous terrorists is both real and widespread.

In his interview with NewsMax, Williams discussed al-Qaida's successful efforts to obtain nuclear weapons for use against the United States.

NewsMax: Does al-Qaida have nuclear weapons?

Williams: They definitely have nukes. There's no doubt about it. There's positive proof. As I wrote in my book, in the first three months of Operation Enduring Freedom — the Gulf War — our troops found in a cave outside of Khandahar in Afghanistan a canister filled with Uranium 238 [the basic ingredient for a nuclear bomb] and in Turnak Farms [where at one time 1,800 members of al-Qaida lived and worked] they found jars and jars and jars of yellow cake [pure uranium, dried].

The most alarming thing of all involved a Pakistani operative who was driving over the Allenby Bridge between Jordan and Israel in a shabby Volkswagen mini-bus. The Israelis stopped him and in the back of the Volkswagen was a plutonium implosion device, the most sophisticated of all nuclear weapons. According to the Mossad people I spoke to, it was in excess of 10 kilotons.

It could have taken out all of Israel in the blink of an eye. If one of these babies went off with 10 kilotons, first of all you'd have the conventional explosion, which if it occurred at the site of 9/11, would take out all of lower Manhattan.

From that would come a fireball that would be about 750 feet in diameter — the core would reach a temperature of 10 million degrees Celsius, which means in the blink of an eye everything would disintegrate. After that would come juggernaut blasts ripping through the city with winds in excess of 640 miles per hour, and after that would come the mushroom cloud and the radioactive fallout that would spew into the five boroughs of New York, into Connecticut and New Jersey. The end result is that millions would be dead.

NewsMax: What is the possibility that there is a store of nukes here in the United States?

Williams: There's no doubt about that. Before 9/11 a guy by the name of Sheik Kabbani, the president of the Supreme Islamic Council of North America, appeared before the Senate and the House and said that over 48 nukes were here. There was also a Waziristan summit meeting in Pakistan in April 2004. Attending it were the leading planners of the next 9/11. Included was one Sharif al Masry, and Adnan el-Shukrijumah, the next Mohammad Atta, and a terrorist from Brooklyn.

They all confirmed that nuclear weapons had been developed by al-Qaida with the help of scientists and technicians from the A.Q. Khan Research laboratories. The most chilling thing, they said was that all of the weapons had been forward deployed to Mexico and transported over the border into the U.S.

This story was reported in a little tiny paragraph in Time magazine. It was buried in there. The fact that nuclear weapons had been developed [by al-Qaida], and the researchers at the A.Q. Khan facility had confirmed that, and transported to Mexico and then into the United States — you couldn't get a bigger story than that.

NewsMax: Doesn't this indicate the seriousness of the problem with our borders?

Williams: It's madness. The borders are not just open. People say the "porousness" of our borders but that's not accurate — our borders are wide open.

Is he selling books or telling truth?

We report, you decide.

A healthy skeptical question would be - if they had here, why hadn’t they used them?

“Is he selling books or telling truth”?

...sounds like he’s going to sell a lot of books either way. Anything to wake up the idiots in this country that have forgotten/have head in the sand about 9/11.

If A-Q had a nuke they would have to use it immediately.

The possibility of detection by a hostile (to A-Q) is very high, and Israel or the US or maybe England would go all out to “neutralize” it if they thought there was one.

A-Q would also need to look out for every other nutcase bunch of radicals, who would want the asset for their own projects.

In short, I don’t buy the premise based on the operational requirements of owning one.

Loved the “Star Wars” theme. Not sure about this, though.

Williams is making the rounds again. Same story. Pops up a couple times a year.

Well, there's a shocker.

I don’t agree as we see what has happened with the lack of action regarding the North Korea and Iran nuclear programs.
No one will act until something goes bang.

From 2002, there was a thread on FR but I can't find it, so here's a link to an FNC story...

Navy SEALs Inspecting Radioactive Ship Off New Jersey

Norfolk, VA was on the ship's intinerary after NJ.

Question for some of you technical guys out there. If one wanted to detect Plutonium while driving around in a vehicle, what type of detection device would one use? Would it be a neutron detector? Are they portable?

Here’s a chilling hypothetical. What if we found out the nukes existed and were being kept in Mecca?
