The warning, posted Oct. 12, was part of an ongoing Internet conversation titled ”New Attack on America Be Afraid.” It mentioned NFL stadiums in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland, where games are scheduled for this weekend. … Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said there was no intelligence that indicated such an attack was imminent, and he said the alert was ”out of an abundance of caution.”- suntimes
Does “abundance of caution” mean, “we just wanted to scare you”? Here’s the thread with the threat. It isn’t loading, but I was able to view some parts of it:
Originally Posted by radicumOk, I’ve been reading about suitcase nukes to see if they are even real, and this is the deal:- Only the most advanced nuclear weapons programs in the world can even make such a thing. the US and Russia are the only ones likely to have ever done so.- There’s only one source in the world that said Russia had these and that some disappeared. He frequently changed the details and wasn’t backed up by any independent research or weapons inspectors, or Russians, or Americans.
However this solitary, unproved source is still used to justify almost all talk about the “missing Russian suitcase nukes.”
– If Russia ever did make them, which there is no hard evidence of at all, the nukes would have had very poor shelf lives due to the very short half life of materials used to make such a lightweight weapon. They literally would have lasted only a few months, so their use as a long term threat doesn’t fit nuclear physics.
tldr: portable nukes aren’t real.

The problem is that people like myself who believe that the government is behind the attacks and are just using Islamic terrorists as patsies, believe that terrorists using a small nuclear device isn’t out of the question if the government is funding the show. You’re definitely correct, however, in that without US assistance, they will never have a nuke of any kind, so if one goes off, you know who to blame.

http://www.canadafreepress.com/2006/…iams091606.htman interview w/ Abu Dawood, the newly appointed commander of the al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan
Abu says: “He is an American and a friend of Muhammad Atta, who led 9/11 attacks five years ago. We call him “Jaffer al Tayyar” [“Jafer the Pilot”]; he is very brave and intelligent. Bush is aware that brother Adnan has smuggled deadly materials inside America from the Mexican border. Bush is silent about him, because he doesn’t want to panic his people. Sheikh Osama bin Laden has completed his cycle of warnings.”
“My only problem with it is that it’s a Canada Free Press exclusive which is a crazy right-wing publication with little to no integrity. The writers seem to be legit but the newspaper itself isn’t. …”
