    Terrorists attacking New York City with a crude nuclear weapon or a dirty bomb are among the main threats the FDNY is preparing for, the department's top disaster planner said yesterday. Chief Joseph Pfeifer told a panel of security experts the FDNY is rapidly transforming itself into a terrorism-ready force that is equipped to respond to such potentially catastrophic attacks. "It's the training we do that'll make the difference between who gets saved and who doesn't get saved," Pfeifer said at the Council on Foreign Relations on E.68thSt. The FDNY is particularly concerned about terrorists developing a crude nuclear bomb...
  • Al-Qaeda's WMD Strategy After the U.S. Intervention in Afghanistan

    The Jamestown Foundation ^ | October 21, 2005 | Robert Wesley
    With the loss of its Afghan sanctuary following the U.S. intervention in 2001, there was a question as to what role weapons of mass destruction (WMD) would play in al-Qaeda’s newly evolving strategy. Al-Qaeda has taken advantage of its recently assumed role as the ideological and strategic brain for the global jihad to create an environment from which a variety of jihadi elements can participate in acquiring and employing chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) weapons. Al-Qaeda has opened the door for its supporters to use CBRN weapons to further the goals of the global jihad. To this end, al-Qaeda...

    WASHINGTON — "Last Best Chance," a short movie about efforts by al-Qaida terrorists to obtain nuclear weapons to use against the United States and Great Britain, has drawn applause from a senior Russian official despite its portrayal of weaknesses in the security of Russia's stockpile. In the opening scene, gangsters offer an underpaid Russian scientist a bribe to help them steal a warhead from a poorly secured weapons site. "I think this movie should be distributed all over the world," Sergei Karaganov, foreign policy adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin, said Tuesday night after watching a screening of the 45-minute...

    Pre-Occupied With Miers, America Misses That Terrorists Get Nukes By Frank Salvato October 7, 2005 Yesterday President Bush tried yet again to refocus the nation on what is arguably the most important issue facing the world today; radical Islamist terrorism. But while most of the nation is mindlessly obsessing over why Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers' parents didn't get fleeced for a liberal Ivy League education, an issue that concerns the very survival of this country, and perhaps the free world took place and it did so with nary an eyebrow being raised. This week it was reported that recently...

    WASHINGTON – Saying "the chance that an overt or covert terrorist attack involving radioactive materials will occur is an unfortunate reality in the United States today," the Centers for Disease Control is putting a new emphasis on preparing the public and health-care professionals for nuclear terrorism. Amid extensive resources published prominently on the CDC website is a new two-page brochure that can be printed titled, "Radiological Terrorism: Emergency Management Pocket Guide for Clinicians." The brochure was posted yesterday. "CDC would play a key role in protecting the public health during and after an emergency involving radiation or radioactive materials," the...

    As the old cliché goes, it’s time to wake up and smell the Community Coffee (again). In an eerie type of irony, the United States will commemorate the fourth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in American history with another disaster of mythical proportions sitting fresh in our minds. Though ironic, the coinciding aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the memory of 9/11 should serve as ominous warnings to anyone who loves America. Why? In recent months, details of Osama bin Laden’s latest terror scheme--called ''American Hiroshima''--have been commented on by some in the new media and ignored completely by those...

    Al-Qaida may already have nuclear weapons hidden in major U.S. cities, says the author of "Nuclear Terrorism" and former Defense Department official. In response to reports last week that al-Qaida might hijack tanker trucks as a means of wreaking havoc in major U.S. cities, Graham Allison, director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and former assistant secretary of defense, said smuggling a nuclear weapons into a major city is not improbable. "While not likely, it is possible that al-Qaida is hiding nuclear bombs in one or several American cities today,"...

    The man who headed the Central Intelligence Agency's Osama bin Laden desk said he recognized al-Qaida's single-minded efforts to secure nuclear weapons for use against the U.S. nearly a decade ago, but multiple efforts to have the terror leader captured before Sept. 11, 2001, went unheeded. "We had found that he and al-Qaida were involved in an extraordinarily sophisticated and professional effort to acquire weapons of mass destruction," Michael Scheuer told CBS News. "In this case, nuclear material, so by the end of 1996, it was clear that this was an organization unlike any other one we had ever seen."...

    WASHINGTON – Recent al-Qaida attacks using primitive bombs and inflicting relatively small numbers of casualties have persuaded some that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network has been unable to secure weapons of mass destruction or has been unable to smuggle them into the U.S. and other key target countries. In the wake of a series of reports from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin about the nuclear terrorism threat, some skeptics of al-Qaida's ability to detonate nuclear weapons inside the U.S. most often suggest the problems with maintenance and technical attention. Others suggest Osama bin Laden may have purchased duds on the black...

    Intelligence gathered from captured al-Qaida documents and interrogations of captured operatives has provided the U.S. with some specific information about Osama bin Laden's favored dates for his decade-long plan for an "American Hiroshima" nuclear terrorist attack – and one of those dates arrives this week. One of the most frequently cited dates is Aug. 6, the anniversary of the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Saturday marks the 60th anniversary of that attack, so this Aug. 6 would have special significance, reports Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence newsletter that has broken several major stories tracking al-Qaida's nuclear terrorism...

    San Diego, California. August 6th, 11:36AM THE TECATE TRUCK was just like all the other Tecate Beer trucks that went back and forth daily at the border crossing, except that it was not owned by Tecate. The driver of that truck spoke fluent Spanish and the truck was always loaded with Tecate. In time the US border guards got used to it. The difference was that this truck had, at its center, a narrow, hollow space shielded with thin sheets of lead so that no ambient radiation would escape. It had cost The Base over $150,000 to convert the truck...
