Some pretty good info on them suitcase bombs, I thought the triggers lasted 7 years not 1 or 2. This makes it very interesting indeed, if true then he cant use them because the half life of the trigger is not "capable".

Osama wants nukes: Cdn intel

By JIM BRONSKILL


OTTAWA (CP) - Canadian spies have been pondering one of the more chilling questions of the post-9/11 era: Does Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida have briefcase-sized nuclear weapons?

A newly obtained intelligence report examines the intriguing notion and concludes that whatever the answer, the terrorist network is intent on acquiring nuclear means. The assessment revives concerns that emerged as early as 1992 when Stanislav Lunev, a former Russian military intelligence officer, claimed his country's intelligence services had lost many of the portable, backpack-style devices, which weigh about 55 kilograms.

Canadian Intelligence Warns of bin Laden's Nuclear Intentions

Canada's intelligence service has concluded that Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida network have one priority: obtain briefcase-sized nuclear weapons.

The Canadian Press reports this week that a newly published intelligence report is not sure if bin Laden has obtained such weapons. But the Islamic terror group is clearly trying to do so.
