This front page was just released. The copy of the story is not yet online. Apparently Osama purchased small portable nukes from rogue former KBG agents.


Stay tuned...

Indeed... that fact that the story is taking a while to reach the web is a bit telling.

A new book by an FBI consultant on international terrorism says Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist network purchased 20 suitcase nuclear weapons from former KGB agents in 1998 for $30 million.

The book,"Al Qaeda: Brotherhood of Terror," by Paul L. Williams, also says this deal was one of at least three in the last decade in which al-Qaida purchased small nuclear weapons or weapons-grade nuclear uranium.


However, your Supreme Skeptic Overlord reminds all of you to consider the source:

www.culturevulture.net...

Among the credits for author Paul L. Williams listed on the back cover of Al Qaeda: Brotherhood of Terror, is his role as ìconsultant on international terrorism and organized crimeî for the FBI. It is difficult to determine the type or quality of consultation Williams offers the FBI. Judging by the content of Al Qaeda, Williams seems to have done little more than compile newspaper clipping files and fact sheets from the FBI. Indeed, Al Qaeda is the sort of book one would expect to receive free of charge as inducement propaganda to a kooky sect or medical cause. It reflects FBI approved ìfactual information,î lot and lots of photographs of terrorists from FBI files and precious little else.

In the meantime you can order that story (happy-end included) from Amazon. The trick to cross the border with A-Backpack today should be further improved

Consider combining the title of this thread with the loose definition of "Terrorist" in the Homeland Security Act...

...I hope all of you college students out there have purchased flak vests as an accessory with your book-filled backpacks...
