Al Qaeda plotting “dirty radioactive IEDs”

NATO security chiefs warned member states of nuclear roadside bombs in 2009


 

Jihadi groups may be close to producing “workable and efficient” biological and chemical weapons, according to classified American cables obtained by Wikileaks and shared with The Telegraph. Security chiefs at a NATO gathering in January 2009 warned member states that al Qaeda was preparing a program of “dirty radioactive IEDS”—essentially makeshift nuclear roadside bombs. Beyond making a large explosion, such bombs would contaminate the area for several years. The cables, which chronicle the international struggle to stop the spread of weapons-grade nuclear, chemical, and biological material, also say that al Qaeda documents from 2007 show that they’ve made “greater advances” in bio-terrorism than was previously believed.

  1. The only consolation out of this idiocy is, they will also die from radioactive exposure on handling this stuff. Hopefully, they will die first before they manage to victimize so many. Oh Allah what kind of "schizophrenic" madness does serial killers/murderers and mad followers of Prophet Muhammad are spreading? Is "Peace" be upon him means may death be upon him? Is it Religion of Peace or Religion of Death? Is it Religion of Love or religion of Hate? More and more the picture these extremists present to the world is of Islam a religion of none reason and the absence of critical thinking.

    • Considering that suicide bombers are a regular part of their arsenal, I'm not sure how much of a condolence even that is.

      Fun/Scary thought for the day: Take one suicide bomber, add one deadly disease with a long incubation time during which it can be transmitted easily. Mix and place in an airport… you don't even need to get him on a plane.

      • Shhh….. they are watching and monitoring! They all end up infecting themselves, their relatives, friends, and family. You can't control disease, more likely they themselves will suffer more than those people they wish to infect.

    • You've never read the Bible have you…..

      • what does the bible have to do with anything?

        • If people are going to claim the Koran is all blood and violence, they should read their own Bible….because it says the same.

  5. This is utter rubbish….rubbish from the bin out behind a hospital.

    Another attempt at fear from the 'mushroom cloud' group.

    • all the nuclear material floating around on the black market and yet the idea of so inconceivable you call idea of them weaponizing it "rubbish"? oh right Islam is the religion of peace, therefore Muslims are not capable of violence in any way. I;m interested to know what version of reality you live in Emily.

      • A 'dirty bomb' is made from leftover radioactive waste from a hospital garbage bin. Not harmful.

        It is not a nuclear device like Hiroshima.

  7. This is exactly what al-Qaeda has told us they are trying to do, they have declared war on us even if we don't recognize it, at some point we may have to fight back, but at least it pisses them off that we've virtually ignored them thus far.

    • Except none of that is true.

      bin Laden said he'd break the US financially, and he's done that.

      And it has nothing to do with us.

      • You are delusional.
        Muslims can't resist killing each other, they consider killing civilized people a great victory.

        • Racist idiot.

  10. ghawd, one question….is it a built in ideal religion goes hand in hand with killings of innocent life loving law abiding human beings? or has the world gone topsy turvy looney bins? …. last time one checked religion such as in feudal times was to assist the poor with food and shelter and compassion and kindness now it is synonymous with spreading of death and terrorist bombings…or are the leaders promoting this by not saying anything which is complicity, a philosopher friend once mentioned…please muslims and islamists answer this question….many of us question the sanity of it all! ghawd….we are just trying to get by, pay our bills, live peacefully, obey societla laws and rules respect others, why all the noise? there are therapists and psychologists if one is angry but to kill others now with and by other means? ghawd! s e e k h e l p!

    • Maybe some of them did seek help. What happens if the "helps" themselves are way mentally and morally sicker than them?

  12. My Granddaughter,( soon to eight ) said that the reason these Bad people from a far away land want to hurt us is cause they are ''jealous'' cause we have nice stuff, and they have to live in a dirty place, with no clean clothes and their houses are all dirty and stuff…that is the reason they want to hurt us…Jealousy,,

    • Well at 8, everything is simple eh? LOL

      • Agree, but you know what ? Part of what she said could very well be true…sad …but could be true ..

        • Except that it's not.

    • "When I gave food to the poor, they called me a saint. When I asked why the poor had no food, they called me a communist"

      Perhaps ask your grand-daughter to think about why they have to live in a dirty place, with no clean clothes, etc..

      • Considering Pakistan, it might be due to their screwed priorities? Nuclear weaponry first, before anything else? Terrorism is big business, the higher ups are not doing it for free, only the lives of the stoogies/idiots of the bottom ranks are freebies. I have heard not even that, there are cases where in martyr's were promised that their families receive financial compensations/aids after their deaths. Too bad they are way too dead to see whether those promises are nothing but just that, after all saliva does not cost them a cent.

      • Thwim…Good one,, I will most certainly ask her, It will be interesting to get an opinion from a '' I'm a big girl now '' perspective…never know, we Adults might learn something….stay tuned……
