    Members of Congress have warned about the dangers of suitcase nuclear weapons. Hollywood has made television shows and movies about them. Even the Federal Emergency Management Agency has alerted Americans to a threat — information the White House includes on its Web site. But government experts and intelligence officials say such a threat gets vastly more attention than it deserves. These officials said a true suitcase nuke would be highly complex to produce, require significant upkeep and cost a small fortune.

    The USCCB Committee on Migration sent a delegation to the U.S./Mexico border region to study the plight of unaccompanied minors and human trafficking victims. The ever-growing problems with these populations are some of the gravest and many times most overlooked symptoms of the broken and out-dated immigration system currently employed by the United States. The delegation met with a broad cross-section of agencies and individuals involved with or knowledgeable of these populations to gain critical insights and to understand their needs. The delegation also met with Church officials, government officials, community-based organization, and other with important perspectives. Programs established to...

    Since September 11, 2001, the speaker of the House has been required for security purposes to take government planes for official business. The White House rightly called "silly" recent criticism of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's desire to have a plane that could fly to her San Francisco district nonstop, which would be larger than the plane her predecessor used. But this flap raises a more serious issue--that of presidential succession. Pelosi takes a military plane because the speaker of the House is second in line to succeed the president, behind only the vice president. That's what drove the Department of...

In comments during a visit to Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California this week, Chertoff said the foremost concern for the nation's security now is the threat of a larger chemical, biological or nuclear attack. Chertoff joins the growing list of public officials – including President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Chertoff's predecessor at Homeland Security, Tom Ridge – who have strongly hinted that nuclear terrorism...

    We hear the chilling news about the possibility of suitcase nukes inside our borders, we hear that 10, maybe even 20 of our cities may be at risk. The risk we face is nothing compared to what the Islamic World faces if terrorists choose to escalate the war on terror. We currently have Poseiden Nuclear Submarines on patrol in the Indian Ocean. No terrorist could ever find them, much less destroy them. A single sub can unleash 50 missiles with pinpoint accuracy, each with a warhead bigger than the sum of even 20 suitcase nukes.

    Reports are slowly filtering out about a plan by Islamics to detonate several nuclear bombs around the continental United States. Osama bin Laden has lovingly named this attack “America’s Hiroshima.” His logic for giving his plan this name is that the United States is the only world power to use an atomic weapon against an enemy and based on that, it is legal and within Islamic law for him to use such weapons against the American people. According to reports obtained from captured Al Qaeda agents and documents they were carrying, several nuclear devices may have been brought across the...

White men in gray business suits and military uniforms, after much deliberation, decided that the United States could not give the Japanese any warning, that although it could not concentrate on a civilian area, it should seek to make a profound psychological impression on as many inhabitants as possible. They argued that it would be cheaper in American lives to release the nuclear genie.</p>

In this snippet, he reveals that JFK told him in 1961 that the Soviet Union has a nuclear bomb in its embassy in Washington, DC. In my book, this counts as a major revelation, yet there are several factors that indicate that this piece was created in a way that minimizes its impact. And that's exactly what happened: minimal impact. A sitting president told a White House reporter that...

New evidence suggests they did – and that Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorists network is determined to find them and use them with the help of bribed Russian spies or special forces soldiers who have maintained their secret locations for all these years.

    SupplySideInvestor ^ | 11-12-01 | Jude Wanniski
    <p>Since 1945, there have been only two nuclear weapons used in anger, both of them by Uncle Sam when President Harry S Truman decided he would rather have 100,000 Japanese dead than another million American servicemen -- which was the outside estimate of what it would take to invade and occupy Japan. The next big war was the “Cold War,” where the United States and the USSR each had enough nukes – mounted on Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and in long-range submarines and bombers -- to blow each other up several times over. During the Cold War, the United Kingdom, “Red” China, France and India all joined the Nuclear Club. We now know for sure that Israel also developed a nuclear capability in the late 1970s and at least was able to publicly announce in 1981 that while it did not have one assembled, it had all the materials necessary to whack one together at a moment’s notice. When Israel then bombed Baghdad’s nuclear power plant in June 1981 to upset any thoughts Saddam might have of matching Tel Aviv’s capability, Saddam began Iraq’s nuke program, assembling the materials necessary to whack one together at a moment’s notice. After the Gulf War in 1991, it was determined to everyone’s satisfaction, after being able to look over the records, that Saddam never did get the nuke he wanted. Since then, Pakistan did become the first Islamic nation to successfully test a nuke, which it of course it did to match India’s, as they glare at each other across Kashmir, a predominantly Islamic province within the Indian state.</p>

    Boris Berezovsky has claimed that Chechen rebels possess a nuclear weapon. “It is a small portable device which had not been used until now for only one reason: because some necessary element was missing,” the exiled Russian oligarch told Komsomolskaya Pravda, citing “credible sources.” Berezovsky said he wrote a letter to Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) about this danger last autumn. Asked to respond to Berezovsky's claims about a Chechen nuke, a security official told the newspaper, “We do not believe it necessary to comment on statements, especially delirious ones, made by people who are on the international wanted list.”...

    Canada's intelligence service has concluded that Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida network have one priority: obtain briefcase-sized nuclear weapons. The Canadian Press reports this week that a newly published intelligence report is not sure if bin Laden has obtained such weapons. But the Islamic terror group is clearly trying to do so. "The assessment revives concerns that emerged as early as 1992 when Stanislav Lunev, a former Russian military intelligence officer, claimed his country's intelligence services had lost many of the portable, backpack-style devices, which weigh about 55 kilograms." The Candian report, issued in June 2004 report was headlined:...

    According to the new book "Osama's Revenge", by Paul Williams, who was interviewed by Linda Vester yesterday, Bin Laden purchased 80 suitcase nuclear bombs from the so-called Russian Mafia. Furthermore, he says many of these bombs have already been smuggled into the USA and are dispersed around the country. Given their love for syncronization, there won't be any warning, but rather dozens going off at the same time all over the country. A rather frightening thought. People in Israel and the UK are also major targets, obviously. Williams goes on to say that he has confirmed all of this with...

These two matters are linked, for as I previously wrote in TCS, Uzbekistan sits in the middle of a dangerous nest of nuclear, ex-nuclear, and aspiring nuclear powers, including its former ruler, Russia; its neighbor Kazakhstan; nearby Pakistan, and China.
