This is scary

Recommended Posts

Not sure as to the validity of the claim but nonetheless still scary.

Usama Bin Laden allegedly has already purchased a number of nuclear suitcase bombs from Chechen organized crime groups and there have been reports that he has backpack bombs.

Some nuclear suitcase bombs may have been developed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War. There is a fear that some of the devices may be sold to terrorists. Russian scientists have testified they are "absolutely sure" suitcase bombs were created, though the Russian government has steadfastly denied their existence.

Former Russian National Security Adviser Alexandr Lebed in 1997 alleged that up to 100 portable bombs that looked like suitcases were unaccounted for since the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union. He said the devices have an explosive capacity of one kiloton — the equivalent of 1,000 tons of TNT — and could be activated by a single person, killing as many as 100,000 people.

U.S. officials have not denied the existence of such weapons, but have cast doubt on claims that some may have gone missing since the end of the Cold War.

"We have not seen any hard evidence of suitcase-sized nuclear devices unaccounted for or falling into the hands of terrorists or rogue states," former FBI Director Louis Freeh told Congress two years ago.

Now, THAT is fuckin scary!

Thats what the US should be focusing on, not a war with Iraq!

So, it is feasible that Al Qaeda can acquire suitcase nukes from the Chechen mob, and it is not believable they can acquire WMD from Iraq????

ps...this story is very old
