Countdown To The Next Strike

Very good piece here.

Publicly, most government officials do not believe or at least will not confirm they believe Al-Qaida or other terrorists groups have acquired atomic weapons. Privately, as one senior intelligence official told me, “there is growing concern the ultimate nightmare might be true.”

Interesting indeed. Postulating the worst case, that terrorists ( aka cowards ), possess a nuclear device and manage to use it on American soil. I imagine the 3rd world will become radioactive slag rather quickly. We have already used such weapons before, do the cowards think we won't respond?
