Time Is Running Out
From the Times On Line comes the warning that seizures of smuggled radioactive material have doubled in the last four years. This is the stuff that "dirty bombs" are made from. Most of the incidents seem to have occurred in Europe, but I'm not sure if that means most of the activity is happening there or they're just doing a better job of intercepting.
Al-Qaeda has long made known its desire to make a dirty bomb and some of its captured leaders have confessed to the CIA that attempts have been made to smuggle such a device into the US. Meanwhile, the idiots in Washington continue with their usual "What Me Worry?" attitude of how to secure our borders and ports.
