Found this to be interesting.
Another thing: Here is a simple fact. After the Gulf War, the inspectors that went into Iraq only got a few of the calutrons that the Germans had
sold to Saddam Hussein. He hid the rest, which have been operating some 11 years since the Gulf war ended. In the few calutrons we got, there were
residues. Tests of those residues showed weapons grade U235. So in 1991, Saddam Hussein was already using his calutrons to produce weapons grade
U235. Any fool with some U235 can rig a "gun-assembly" type weapon; all you do is explosively drive two hunks of U235 together very sharply. That
gives you a nice nuclear explosion; the first U.S. atomic bomb dropped on the Japanese during WW II was a gun assembly weapon.
So in 1991, Saddam Hussein may have had sufficient U235 already made for from 7 to 12 nuclear weapons. If so, and running his calutrons for 11 more
years, he will have enough now for perhaps six dozen or so nuclear weapons. So it isn't necessarily just chemical and biological weapons of mass
destruction that he has; he can also have a few nuclear weapons already assembled and ready to go. If so, then at least a few may have been spirited
into the U.S. clandestinely, and conveniently hidden in some of our largest population complexes such as New York, Los Angeles, etc.
Unfortunately for decades this country has been largely left "wide open". Simply look at the container situation, where through our ports there pass
many many thousands of containers all the time. Only about 2% of those are ever inspected. They then get loaded on trucks in the containerized
system, and delivered to their destination in the U.S. The paperwork is checked to be sure it's correct, but only about 2% of the containers are
ever checked at all.
