While we are all fixated on the Hurricane Katrina, and rightfully so, it bears mentioning that we need to be aware of the threat that Al-Qaeda poses during this time of recovery for the Gulf Coast. The scale of misery and destruction that Katrina has wrought can only be matched by a nuclear attack on American soil which experts tells us could happen at any moment. The situation on our southern border is not going to be fixed all by itself and given the amount of time the President and Congress will be sending on Katrina and the Supreme Court, it will be a miracle if any political capital will be left to spend on a little problem like 500,000 illegal immigrants a year waltzing into our country.
Recently we have heard reports about the increasing violence of the Mexican drug trade coming north of the border courtesy of the MS-13 gang or Mara Salvatrucha. MS-13 was founded in
"The al-Qaeda, from what we understand, has been meeting with them in
Given the expertise that MS-13 has in smuggling illegal immigrants across the border without detection, one can only imagine how many terrorists might be already in the
On top of all that, news comes an interview with the author of a new book about al-Qaeda’s nuclear ambition, “The Al Qaeda Connection” by Dr. Paul L. Williams, that lays out exactly how the terrorist group will and possibility has brought nuclear weapons to the
RM: Is there any indication of when Bin Laden intends to use the arsenal?
PW: Bin Laden can't sit on these weapons for years. They require constant maintenance. At any given time, a tactical nuke exudes a temperature in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that they are prone to oxidation and rust. Moreover, the triggers that emit large quantities of neutrons at high speeds decay rapidly and have short half-lives - - most would become useless without maintenance in less than four months. The nuclear cores also are subject to decay and over the course of several years would fall below the critical mass threshold. Though the shells that encase the cores are the most durable parts of the weapons, they, too, are subject to contamination. The tritium used to compensate for the required amount of conventional explosives to compress the fissile core within the compact devices is less of an issue since it has a half-life of 12.3 years. Taking all things into consideration, the attack should occur within the very near future. The bombs which bin Laden began building in 1992 are for the American
According to those calculations, the attack could come any day going forward including today. Folks you have all seen the chaos that
The “wonderful” folks on the left like to cry about where OBL is and why we have not caught the leader of al-Qaeda. Well I think we will better served if we catch this man, Adnan el-Shukrijumah. Adnan el-Shukrijumah is thought to have been handpicked by OBL to lead his next attack on American soil. He is a pilot and has received training as a nuclear technician. The terrorist was last seen in
He has been known to have met with all of the biggies in the al-Qaeda organization. He used to serve as the imam of the Farouq Mosque in
