Muslims advised to leave U.S.; attack may be imminent
According to an article carried by Canada Free Press, Muslims in the United States were told to leave, without further warning, by Abu Dawood, one of the newly appointed commanders of the al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan.
“We cannot stop our attack just because of American Muslims…. The American Muslims are like a human shield for our enemy; they must leave New York and Washington.”
Dawood said that the attackers would this time have Western passports and Christian names.
An Al-Qaeda detainee reportedly told U.S. officials, after days of interrogation, that Osama bin Laden was planning to unleash a “nuclear hell storm” in America (http://www.canadafreepress.com/2006/paul-williams091806.htm).
Interrogators were told that al Qaeda had arranged to smuggle nuclear supplies and tactical nuclear weapons into Mexico and thence into the U.S.
Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir reports that nuclear weapons are already secreted within the U.S. (WorldNetDaily 9/17/06).
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has designated September as National Preparedness Month. There is still minimal information on www.ready.gov about nuclear weapons effects: none on preparing expedient shelter or personal radiation detectors. In 2003, DHS refused a citizen’s request to link to another government site that offers information on a homemakeable radiation detector.
Although we have no way of independently confirming or refuting the rumors cited above, there is no question that Americans lack the basic knowledge that could save their lives if a nuclear incident ever occurs.
