Thousands of classified American cables obtained by the WikiLeaks website and passed to The Daily Telegraph detail the international struggle to stop the spread of weapons-grade nuclear, chemical and biological material around the globe.
At a Nato meeting in January 2009, security chiefs briefed member states that al-Qaida was plotting a program of dirty radioactive IEDs, makeshift nuclear roadside bombs that could be used against British troops in Afghanistan.
The briefings also state that al-Qaida documents found in Afghanistan in 2007 revealed that greater advances had been made in bioterrorism than was previously realized. An Indian national security adviser told American security personnel in June 2008 that terrorists had made a manifest attempt to get fissile material and have the technical competence to manufacture an explosive device beyond a mere dirty bomb.
Alerts about the smuggling of nuclear material, sent to Washington from foreign U.S. embassies, document how criminal and terrorist gangs were trafficking large amounts of highly radioactive material across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
While it is likely much easier to transport these types of materials throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, there are no doubt attempts to achieve the same in North America. If Assistant Director Hollar is to be believed, then weapons of mass destruction have already been found entering the United States at our ports.
Theres also the issue of the 2000 mile unsecured southern border.
Another story buried under the information rubble of the Egyptian protests was that of leading Muslim cleric Said Jaziri. The controversial figure is known to oppose American values and called for the killing of Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard because he drew pictures of the prophet Mohammed. As it turns out, Cleric Jaziri was recently caught being smuggled into the United States over the Mexico-US border. Perhaps Jaziri was seeking asylum as he claims, but the point is that 100 other extremists may have made it across. All it takes is one with a dirty bomb or suitcase nuke.
This threat is real, its present, and it can be realized at any time. Were not talking about the Cuban missile crisis here, where both parties involved knew each others capabilities and had the ability to negotiate peace. Were talking about factions determined to strike targets for whatever sinister goals make up their agenda - be they Islamic extremist in nature or something else.
Alex Thomas at The Intel Hub suggests that we could be looking at the possibility of a false flag attack orchestrated by shadow elements within top Western nations - something that has happened throughout the last hundred years for various reasons and includes everything from assassinations of Presidents and Monarchs (Archduke Ferdinand, et al.) as well as staging attacks that eventually took nations to war (Gulf of Tonkin, et al.) :
This appears to be some sort of pathological mind game that certain elements of our government are using on the people, almost as if they are getting us ready for the reality of a nuclear attack in America.
Whatever the case may be, understand that any major American city is a potential target, and any such attack on US soil would lead to complete and total chaos throughout the United States and the rest of the world resulting in the real possibility of worst-case scenarios: food transportation systems being frozen, banking systems out of service, emergency personnel being unavailable, and even global war, to name just some.
A real patriot, so the Administration will certainly ask that he be "reassigned".
I’m not sold on this guy’s mistake.
He either screwed up and let the cat out of the bag or he misspoke. He seemed very unsure of the accuracy of his comments.
I’d say it’s 50/50.
Bad stuff has been found in San Diego and elsewhere.
This port officer can hardly contain himself when being asked a direct question.
I got a thing from Fox News on this ...they are covering it
