Why there is no official reaction to the article in Sunday Times Al-Qaeda woos recruits with nuclear bomb website?
Do officials really have nothing to say? Or are they afraid of something, for instance boosting public interest to the issue which will inevitably lead to rise of terroristic threat. Of course they must be afraid of public panic as many of the visitors of such al-Q websites now must be making riots setting fire to cars in France, Germany and Belgium. Now think, what if they've got dirty bombs? As I see, it's really very easy to make one right in the kitchen of your house. But where do they get needed elements? I don't know. But I know there've been information long appearing in the web illustrating Pakistani islamists to send away their Chechen faith brothers to make such dirty bombs (though moderators carefully remove it). Indeed, one could find the same instructions for dirty bombs on some Chechen sources. Were these the ones to be mirrored by al-Q?AN Al-Qaeda website containing detailed instructions in Arabic on how to make nuclear, “dirty” and biological bombs has attracted more than 57,000 hits and hundreds of readers’ inquiries. Terrorism experts are warning that the site could be boosting the organisation’s appeal to would-be assassins in Britain and abroad.
The manual, posted on October 6 on a forum titled Al-Firdaws, or Paradise, contains 80 pages of instructions and pictures of kitchen bomb-making techniques. It is divided into nine lessons under the overall heading The Nuclear Bomb of Jihad and the Way to Enrich Uranium, and is dedicated as a “gift to the commander of the jihad fighters, Sheikh Osama Bin Laden, for the purpose of jihad for the sake of Allah”.
The site encourages its readers to look for materials such as radium, which it says is an “effective alternative to uranium and available on the market”.
