UK, June 10, (Pal Telegraph – By Peter Eyre) It became apparent that someone spread a rumour that the vessels sailing to Gaza recently were possibly carrying one of the British (acquired from South Africa) stolen battlefield nuclear bombs. For some strange reason Chris McGreal of the Guardian newspaper published an article on the 24th of May 2010 revealing how Israel offered to sell nukes to South Africa during the apartheid era. What he failed to reveal was that Israel struck up a deal with South Africa to move its technicians down to the high-security weapons research and development facilities at Pelindaba. It was at this location that the Isaeli technicians managed to covertly give themselves nuclear weapons but also under the table gave South Africa its own nuclear capability.
It was during this time that a decision was made to ship all nine bombs to Chicago for de commissioning. However, our dear “Iron Lady” Maggie Thatcher decided that it would be a good idea to maybe acquire a few of the weapons for possible use against Iraq in the event Saddam did not toe the line.

Unreliable source at best,
And dont say traceability or plausable denial, this couldnt have happened without the US knowing as it was the supposed end destination of the Nukes, and the USA provided the Fissionable material in the first place, the very plutonium etc that started the Israeli Nuclear programme.
