I don't see a air attack.
What i see is a attack on a major seaport with a suitcase bomb ether on a ship (cargo container) or attached to the bottom of the hull.
From Thread: Nukes in US detectable?

"A container on a boat..."
Not On a boat, but Under one!
Utilize the bulk of the metal hull and seawater to shield the device from radiation sensors.
Perhaps you could even arrange to have the ship carry a load of kitty litter or bananas to "mask" the leakage even futher.
For an Aerial assult, use high altitude helium balloons with a GPS-controlled release system. A knowledge of meteorolgy could allow you to drop a 1-2 ton payload (weight of the device, not its yeild)on a number of coastal cities while safely offshore.
Fly high enough, 80,000-100,00 feet, and you'd likely avoid detection or interdiction.

Not sure what I feel about this. We've all heard rumors now for a number of years about an alleged jihadi plot called "American Hiroshima" that would set off suitcase nukes in one or more American cities.
I seem to remember that this was supposed to happen in 2005, maybe even '06. The debateably valid WorldNetDaily was a big trumpeter on this scenario.
Now we have someone else detailing what he sees as Al Qaeda's "American Hiroshima" plan. And perhaps this person is the most worrying because he knows his stuff.
It's Daniel Hill, the converted Muslim who warned of both the first WTS bombings and of 9/11
Hill fought alongside the Afghans against the Soviets. And he also has been deep in the fanatical Muslim world providing intelligence to the U.S.
It was Hill who converted to Islam as a young U.S. Army paratrooper stationed in Beirut in 1958. It was Hill who learned fluent Arabic. It was Hill who joined the Mujahedeen Freedom Fighters in Afghanistan and fought the Soviet invasion there in the 1980s. It was Hill who personally met Osama bin Laden. It was Hill who used information from Islamic extremists to warn Rescorla that terrorists would use the underground parking garage for a car bomb attack on the World Trade Center. It was Hill who asked the U.S. government to assist him in an assassination attempt on bin Laden in 1998 (the request was rejected). And it was Hill who warned the FBI just weeks before Sept. 11, 2001, that his Mideast contacts told him "something big" was about to happen in the United States, in New York, Washington, D.C., or Philadelphia — maybe all three.
This time, terrorists will detonate a series of Russian-acquired suitcase nukes while flying in small airplanes over a selection of U.S. cities, namely NY, DC, Chicago, Vegas, Houston and Miami.
Take this warning for what you will. Hill said the attack is "imminent." This article was published on Sept. 5. I will concede though that the "attack was imminent" in both 05 and 06 as well, so you know...
