This is strange. It seems like there was a theory about a stolen nuke in NC, or was it SC not more than a year or two ago? It was reported right here on ATS. Let's do some digging. I swear it was a big deal.


Yep, You Zaphod and myself all were part of a thread just 2 years ago about a missing nuke. Senator Graham spoke of a scenario of a dirty bomb being parked in a shipping yard.
It's here on ATS somewhere.

I'm searching for the thread that took place after I joined in 2013, because the threat came up again. Except we all focused on a missing nuke that would make the scenario more likely.

This might be one of a couple of threads.. from 2009

Though this πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘† Thread was started due to an Article in Sorcha Faal. It's still interesting to read about our concerns then, and what's happening now.

Hey Modified Device ? Are you and Combat Master the same? The 2013 article I linked has the same Avatar lower on page 1

After they cleared four containers, authorities announced that there was no existing threat to the port Thursday, WCSC-TV reported.

The Coast Guard announced that the terminal would reopen and that a safety zone had been lifted early Thursday.

A suspect is being questioned in connection to the incident, according to the Coast Guard's Twitter account.

News says that they have detained the source of the report, someone on YouTube, which I assume would be George Webb.

Since Webb started this because 6 "Patriots" called it in to him, could this possibly have been done by people trying to discredit him and shut him up?
Perhaps he was getting too close to the Seth Rich truth.

But actually, I don't see how this could be Webb's fault. If someone called this information in to him, it would seem that he would be obligated to report it. It's not something to be ignored.

I heard on the radio earlier this morning, that it was called in by "CONSPIRACY THEORISTS".
I had a chuckle, a sip of coffee and a little Face Palm.

But yes, the right thing to do in this case would be to notify the authorities.

From what I have read some time ago there is no such thing as a 'dirty bomb in suitacase because a suitacase simply cannot contain enough ctirical mass material.

I am aware that what the articple referd to may not be a suitcase bomb but its relevant to put context into the discussion of a 'dirty bomb.'


You don't understand the concept of a 'dirty bomb'. There is no size requirement because there is no nuclear reaction involved. A dirty bomb is simply any kind of explosive device --- even a firecracker --- that is packagaed with some sort of radioactive material. The idea is, the bomb detonates and spreads the radioactive debris over some area thereby contaminating the area.

What would be the benefit of detonating a dirty bomb on board a ship?

The whole point of a dirty bomb is to contaminate an area by the explosive spread of radioactive material, thus making that area uninhabitable/unusable.

Unless you employ a very large explosion to widely disburse an enormous amount of radioactive material (which would be easily detectable by port-based sensors) the nature and structure of the ship itself will tend to limit the disbursal of the radioactive material to the confines of the ship itself.

Then of course all that needs be done is to tow the contaminated vessel to the deep ocean and scuttle it.

What's the point?

I think ATS is watched very closely. It's easy to write us off as crazies so no one listens to what we have to say...

Looks like it's all clear.



Unified Command determines no existing threat to the port. Terminal will reopen & safety zone has been lifted," the Coast Guard tweeted. "There were four containers where threat was posed at terminal in Charleston, SC. These have been scanned and cleared by authorities."
It said the source of the "original reporting source of the threat" has been detained for questioning.
Coast Guard Lt. JB Zorn said the threat was based on an anonymous claim shared by a man on YouTube.

The ship is used to transport it.....not detonate it.

Once you get it to where it's suppose to go, it's smuggled off and taken to where you would detonate it for maximum coverage.

Even so, to create a dirty bomb of sufficient power and "disruptive effect" you'd need so much radioactive material that interdiction would be almost a certainty.

Assuming of course that your device would arrive via standard shipping container (because, if not, why transport by sea anyway), the explosive power of the device would have to be enough to rupture the container (or what's the point, right?).

An explosion that large/powerful would require a large amount of radioactive material to ensure that the intended blast zone was radioactively contaminated enough to prompt health concerns (again, if the level of contamination is so low to be of no concern, because of the limited amount of material disbursed, what's the point?).

The radiation given off by that much material would set off alarms long before anyone would have a chance to off load the container.

I don't see how detonating one on a ship away from targets would be beneficial. If anyone's doing anything nefarious, they're probably gauging reaction timing for a possible future real one. However, consider the "CTer tip-off", it's probably more likely to be some overreacting nutball convinced of something after a lot of wonktacular mental gymnastics (remember when people were convinced that Malaysia flight was going to pop back up with one? Yeah...)

Never heard of "Flag Day" in the US. Heard of it for other countries, but not ours.

Sometimes the value lies in the fact that you did it at all, whether or not you did it well.

Regardless of the extent of the damage, the headlines will still be the same "ISIS/DNC/Al-Qaeda/etc detonates dirty bomb on US soil!"

it would only be a matter of time until event like this is real.......smuggle it from a port, and make the police go on a wild goose chase while it is being lifted off and carried to wherever

Shuts down the port for clean up and investigation while causing fear across the country, probably leading to more fear driven laws like the patriot act.

Now why would the FBI
LET ever one know a dirty bomb was in america?
would it be to scare you even more?
I would not be surprised if one blows up in US.
false flag!!!

they are doing to america what they did to other countries.
Make terror and destabilize them.
bye bye freedom.

Dry run for a real nuke...?

That day is coming, folks!

And it will be exactly like this... A freighter in a major US port.

Countries with nukes are perfectly safe from this kind of threat. That's the whole point of "deterrence", nobody will attack a nuclear armed country because of the threat of retaliation........oh hang on extremists don't care. Alright sane moderate countries won't launch nukes because they are deterred......oh hang on if they are sane......

Illogical deterrence nonsense.

In 1983, there was a made for TV movie called "Special Bulletin" which depicted a terrorist demanding recognition and had a nuke that they would detonate if demands are not met. It was made along the same lines of Orson Welles 1938 "War of the Worlds". It also took place in Charleston, SC.
Enjoy...

I use to have to work in this ship yard for maintenance on the cargo ships coming in.

They contain hundreds of containers , like those you might see on the back of a semi truck.

They have cranes that rapidly remove these containers and place them directly on a trailer pull by a semi, locked down and transported off the ship yard to various destinations or storage.

This happens in less than a minute per container.
