  •  Osama's Revenge (none)
    I just made a post in the open thread but not sure where people are about and posting right now. Anyway, I just made the mistake of reading Paul S. Williams' book Osama's Revenge and it scared me to death. Williams claims that Qaeda has dozens of suitcase nukes and that the sleeper cells are already in the United States ready to unleash coordinated nuclear attacks that will effectively destroy several major cities and kill millions of people. While the book is scary, it does often come off like a sensationalist piece of scaremongering. Does anyone know where I can find good info on the thread posed by suitcase nukes? Better yet, someone tell me this guy is a debunked crackpot! Seriously, that book freaked me out.
    •  What are they waiting for? (none)
      If Al Qaeda has so many nukes, why are they sitting on them?  Wouldn't it be more becoming of a terrorist to set off The Bomb?  And why use a comparatively elaborate scheme on 911 to attack the US, when they could have just detonated a nuke in Washington DC--no suicide required, just an alarm clock?

      It just makes no sense, and IF Al Qaeda did posess nukes, and Bushco had knowledge of it, they would milk it for all the political gain the world.
