    Al-Qaida leader Osama Bin-Laden tried to obtain nuclear weapons, according to his former bodyguard, Nasser al-Bahri. He dreamed of getting nuclear weapons, and Im sure that had he got hold of them, he would not have hesitated to use them, al-Bahri told Al-Quds al-Arabi on Wednesday morning. Al-Bahri, who is currently residing in Yemen, revealed to the London-based paper that he always carried bullets in order to kill Bin-Laden should the al-Qaida leader be arrested.

    Terrorists including al-Qaeda pose a serious threat to world security as they attempt to obtain atomic weapons material, Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, declared on the eve of a global summit in Washington to prevent a nuclear terror attack. President Obama will call on the leaders of 47 nations today the biggest gathering of heads of state by a US leader since the founding of the UN in 1945 to introduce tougher safeguards to prevent nuclear material ending up in the hands of terrorists. As far back as 1998, Osama bin Laden stated that it was...

    A new report by retired longtime intelligence officer Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, who served as chief of the CIAs Weapons of Mass Destruction Department, accuses the U.S. government of seriously misreading al-Qaidas operational objectives. Al-Qaidas reasoning, according to Mowatt-Larssen's new report from Harvards Kennedy School, runs counter to analytic convention that equates the ease of acquisition of chemical, biological or radiological weapons with an increasing likelihood of terrorist use i.e., a terrorist attack employing crude weapons is therefore more likely than an attack using a nuclear or large scale biological weapon.

Allegedly in contact with al-Qaedas North African affiliate, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Dr. Hicheur was arrested with his 25-year old brother (later released) in Vienne, France on October 8 after an 18-month investigation headed by Frances internal security service, the Direction centrale du renseignement intrieur (Central Directorate of Interior Intelligence - DCRI) (Le Monde, October 14).

    Nuclear Proliferation: Al-Qaida says it will use Pakistan's nuclear weapons against the U.S. if it ever gets the chance. We're not surprised. Nor would we be surprised if it eventually got the opportunity."God willing, the (Pakistani) nuclear weapons will not fall into the hands of the Americans, and the mujahedeen would take them and use them against the Americans." So says Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, al-Qaida's top commander in Afghanistan, where the terror group has found a friend and ally in the Taliban. If you think 9/11 was bad, just wait until al-Qaida gets a nuke, which is not as far-fetched...

    Al Qaeda says would use Pakistani nuclear weapons 21 Jun 2009 21:01:19 GMT Source: Reuters By Inal Ersan DUBAI, June 21 (Reuters) - If it were in a position to do so, Al Qaeda would use Pakistan's nuclear weapons in its fight against the United States, a top leader of the group said in remarks aired on Sunday. Pakistan has been battling al Qaeda's Taliban allies in the Swat Valley since April after their thrust into a district 100 km (60 miles) northwest of the capital raised fears the nuclear-armed country could slowly slip into militant hands.

    Muslims should not use weapons of mass destruction and possess them only as a deterrent, a top Islamic cleric says. Grand Mufti of Egypt Ali Gomaa said using such weapons would violate Islamic teachings as Muslims as well as non-Muslims could be killed. He issued the religious ruling, or fatwa, following reports that the use of such weapons was legitimate, the state news agency MENA said. His ruling comes just days before the visit of US President Barack Obama... Cairo has said it does not want to make atomic bombs and in the past has called for a region...

    Could our worst nightmare in the War on Terror could now be possible true? Does Al-Qeade or the Taliban have one or more bombs from Pakistan's Arsenal? I was thinking about how naive the Obama White House has been when it comes to the War on Terror, but the last 2 weeks has brought forth this major concern. It began some two weeks ago, when the Obama White House and State Department publicly became embittered at the fact that Pakistan's civilian leader would not tell them the location or in what condition Pakistan's Nuclear Arsenal happens to be and I...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 The Bush administration disclosed new details Thursday that suggest terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden may know much more about building nuclear weapons than originally thought. THE DISCLOSURE came in a Rose Garden ceremony marking the 100th day of the U.S. war on terrorism, when President Bush announced steps to freeze the assets of two groups accused of having links to terrorists. One of the groups, known as Umnah Tameer E-nau, or UTN, allegedly provided bin Laden with more than just financial support. UTN claims to serve the hungry and needy of Afghanistan, but it was the ...

    Barely a month before the 9/11 terror attacks, two Pakistani nuclear scientists, said to be close to disgraced Abdul Qadeer Khan, met up with al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and offered to supply him with atomic weapons, according to a newly released book Chaudiri Abdul Majeed and Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood, who held a series of senior posts in Pakistani nuke programme, went to Taliban headquarters in Kandahar in mid-August 2001 and spent three days with bin Laden who was keen on acquiring weapons of mass destruction, the book says.

Rosenberg (Washington, D.C., September 11, 2008) -- During his military tribunal at Gitmo, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM)-- al Qaeda's chief of external operations until he was captured in Pakistan -- admitted that he was not only responsible for the 9/11 attacks. He also the mastermind of "second wave" attacks and other mega-attacks in the United States, Israel and around the globe. In a written statement given to interrogators, KSM went on to confess no fewer than thirty-one separate terrorist attacks. Some had already been carried out....

    One recurring question that has been at the forefront of most intelligence agencies since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by al-Qaida on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon just 1 mile outside Washington concerns the ongoing efforts by terrorist groups to acquire weapons of mass destruction: chemical, biological and mostly nuclear. Each of the NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) weapons comes with a certain advantage and disadvantage -- for the terrorist, that is. Of the three sorts, biological weapons are quite possibly the easiest to safely reproduce in a lab, assuming one knows what to do. A...

    Dubai, 27 May (AKI ) - By Hamza Boccolini - A new video called "Nuclear Terrorism" has been posted on the worldwide web calling for jihadists to use nuclear or chemical weapons to strike the west. A simple jihadi propaganda video or a dangerous message to a sleeper cell in the west? That is the question raised by the video and no-one has yet claimed responsibility for it. "Strike civilians in the west without mercy using weapons of mass destruction" is one of the calls made in the 39-minute video. The question now being asked is whether the video is...
