You should clarify your thread title. Rep. Weldon states that security forces are operating on the assumption that a radiation bomb is inside the CONUS based on information recovered from a captured Al Qaeda power-that-was. the_reject

One thing we might keep in mind is that a "dirty nuke" can be assembled here - does not have to be imported.

And we wonder why some parts of the military want to keep things from Congress...... Idle banter like this serves no positive purpose. "operating on the assumption" is not what most people read in that release..... Just when I was convinced the Demokommies were the dumber of the two.....

We should be operating on the assumption that these dirty weapons are here within the CONUS right now. If the American people were to remove their head out of the sand and at the same time, there was more honesty coming from the government (at all levels) - and people were not ridiculed for "preps" and a bomb or other large scale attack occurred (water supply, food distribution, Critical Infrastructure attacks) there would be less panic and chaos. This would permit the government to spend resources on responding to the perpetrators instead of responding to a dumb down, panicked and chaotic public - with bank runs, food shortages, etc... The National Guard stated back in 1999: "A community that is informed and prepared is the best way of eliminating panic" The Us Navy War College, in a paper called - Taking Down America (I have a copy) stated: Human Decisions are one of the targets...if people are prepared for such events they are more likely to use common sense and good will to see the crisis through...We have met the enemy and he is us.
