Even if it was made into a "dirty bomb" are we not capable of reading the uranium signature given off from every bomb to identify who originally made the bomb. We then would be able to trace it right back to us.
Air Force officer in Alaska dies in likely suicide
Alaska (AP) — The officer who commands an air force wing in Alaska has died of a gunshot wound that likely was self-inflicted, authorities said Monday.
Brig. Gen. Thomas L. Tinsley suffered a gunshot wound to his chest late Sunday night and was pronounced dead within a half hour, said Col. Richard Walberg, who assumed command at Elmendorf Air Force Base after Tinsley's death.
His previous 22-month assignment was executive officer to the Air Force chief of staff, Gen. T. Michael "Buzz" Mosely who resigned in June under pressure in an agency shake-up.
Mosely, the Air Force military chief, and Air Force Secretary Michael W. Wynne, the agency's civilian head, were held accountable for failing to fully correct an erosion of nuclear-related performance standards. One concern was a cross-country flight in August of a B-52 carrying armed nuclear weapons.

You need some more tinfoil for your hat.
I'd really love to know where you guys all go to get so bat# paranoid. You're no different than the guy I had in my ambulance last week who swore up and down that the police officers he'd been throwing chairs at were little green men coming to steal his brain.

It has been more then an year since the incident took place.
After this time has passed, I have a feeling that we are never going to learn the full story about it.
At least, I hope we don't get to know it through a very large mushroom cloud.
If a nuke goes of in the U.S. and it's traced back to the U.S. Government (specifically, this missing nuke), nothing will happen. The blogosphere (including ATS) will be crying out for the Truth but the mainstream media will call those Truthers "conspiracy theorists". The U.S. Gov't will blame it on some mysterious terrorist organization and start a war against Iran even though Iran has nothing to do with the nuke. They'll probably stop the Presidential elections, make Bush the defacto leader impermanently, and instate martial law while their at it.
