WikiLeaks: A nuclear bomb hidden in Europe

The mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said al-Qaeda would set off a “nuclear hellstorm” if Osama bin Laden is ever captured or killed, according to U.S. government documents that were leaked just last month by Wikileaks. He told this to the Guantanamo Bay interrogators conceded in the classified files released by the WikiLeaks website.

His nuclear threat was revealed in Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, one of several media outlets which have published the classified assessments of detainees at Guantanamo.

The German weekly Der Spiegel, also citing WikiLeaks, said that Sheikh Mohammed had told his interrogators he had set up two cells for the purpose of attacking Heathrow in 2002.

The aim was to seize control of an airliner shortly after take-off from Heathrow, one of the world’s busiest airports, turn it around and crash it into one of the four terminals.

But legal experts doubt the credibility of these “Guantanamo confessions”, as the “advanced interrogation methods” used, famously including torture, are likely to make the subjects say anything in order to stop being tortured. Among the confessions are also some of the few existing examples of evidence that al-Qaeda members were actually involved in planning the attacks of 9/11.

    I’ve spent a lot of years studying these guys and I can tell you if they had a hidden nuke, and they might but I doubt it, they will not hesitate to use it. These are some seriously bad people!

    They haven’t got a nuke! No way!

    …er….what’s that odd shaped cloud out there dear?…I think it might be arrrrrrgh!

    They may or may not have. What I can say categorically after 10 years working in cargo at Heathrow is that enough radioactive material has ‘gone missing’ from Heathrow cargo sheds to make several small nuclear bombs.

    Not that the Government or The British Airports Authority would ever confirm that of course.

    According to them it is merely ‘misplaced’…their words not mine.

    Anyone got a fallout shelter going cheap?

    If you listen closely you will note that they caught Osama by what this guy “did not” tell the interrogators. As I said back during the discussions of “enhanced interrogations” aka torture, you get more information by standard interrogation and interview techniques which includes listening to what the people are telling you, or not telling, and the words they are using to tell you the information.
