Slain Neo-Nazi in Maine Hated Obama, Wanted to Build a "Dirty Bomb"


www.securitymanagement.com

A Maine man who was shot and killed by his wife last December had some of the components and instructions to build a dirty bomb, according to a leaked Washington, DC, law enforcement intelligence report.

The report from the Washington Regional Threat and Analysis reports that the FBI found "radiological dispersal device components and literature and radioactive materials" at the Dublin, Maine, home of 29-year-old, James Cummings, who may have had ties to white supremacist groups.

WikiLeaks, a popular Web site that leaks confidential government documents, posted the document online January 19.

The report says Maine authorities detected radioactivity emanating from four jars labeled "uranium metal" as well as found two jars of thorium. Upon further analysis, the four jars of uranium metal held depleted uranium 238 while the jars of thorium contained thorium 232. The FBI comments included within the report say literature on constructing dirty bombs was found as well as information relating to cesium-137, strontium-90, and cobalt-60.

Depleted uranium, thorium, cesium-137, strontium-90, and cobalt-60 are all radioactive isotopes. (Clarification below)

Cummings obtained the four jars of depleted uranium online from a company in the United States that was left unidentified in the report.

He also possessed "four one-gallon containers of 35 percent hydrogen peroxide, lithium metal, thermite, aluminum powder, beryllium, boron, black iron oxide, and magnesium ribbon" as well.

The 35 percent hydrogen peroxide is a necessary precursor to peroxide-based explosives. Lithium metal, thermite, and aluminum would create a stronger explosion, according to the intelligence report.

James Cummings' 31-year-old wife, Amber, told police that her husband was angry over the election of President Barack Obama, mixed chemicals in their kitchen sink, and spoke of dirty bombs. FBI comments within the report said an application to the National Socialist Movement was also found in Cummings' home.

The Bangor Daily News reports a tradesman that worked in the Cummings' house confirmed his affinity for white supremacists ideas, saying he was fond of Adolf Hitler and prominently displayed the Nazi flag inside his home.

Amber said she shot her husband after years of mental, physical, and sexual abuse.

This story first broke at the end of February according to the date of the original link but the first I ever heard of it was last night on the Rachel Maddow show.

It seems this abusive right wing neo-nazi trust fund baby (no smears all true) furious over the election of President Obama, purchased depleted uranium over the Internet from an American company. He had accumulated all the makings of an explosive device and was stockpiling low grade uranium and was trying to get ahold of far more potent cesium-137, strontium-90 and cobalt-60 before his wife had enough of his abuse and shot him.

No one is replying to you because there is already a thread about this.

It is doing very well also or the way you described it "more posts on that thread than flies on poop".


Dont get angry because nobody replies to your post, go check out the existing one and reply to someone elses.

Oh I am not angry... but if there is another thread on it the mods are falling down on their job, mine should have been shut down already.

Personally I haven't seen the other one... please supply a link.
