The purpose of this presentation is not to frighten, but to inform. We are all aware of the devastation that can result from any nuclear detonation, and now we face this threat from Islamic terrorists who reportedly have smuggled atomic weapons into our country and intend to bring in more in an operation they are calling "American Hiroshima". Intelligence information from captured al Qaeda documents, computers, and operatives indicates that al Qaeda has targeted 9 American Cities for nuclear attack to coincide with the August 6, 1945 attack on Hiroshima, Japan. The documents also suggest a September 11th date to coincide with the 911 attacks. They do not specify the year of the intended attacks, but intelligence reports from various sources say al Qaeda already has already smuggled from 7 to 70 nuclear weapons into the country across the Mexican border. American intelligence experts believe the number to be closer to 7 than 70 but admit the threat is very real.
The plan calls for 2 separate waves of attacks timed several days apart with the intent to kill 4 million Americans. They may want to duplicate the 3 day interval between Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It's been reported that during that interval, al Qaeda may call for the surrender of America to Islam by denouncing Christianity and Judaism as well as our Constitution. Al Qaeda has been developing this plan for the past 10 years. The cities targeted are: New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Boston and Washington, D.C. New York and Washington top the preferred target list for al-Qaeda leadership.
To the left, you see a picture of what we commonly imagine when we think of a nuclear explosion. On the right is a photo of a nuclear detonation approximately the size of what the al Qaeda terrorists are planning to use on our country. On this page you will find information, pictures and videos of nuclear tests conducted by the United States, but almost all of these tests were at least 10 times larger than the small 2 to 4 Kiloton weapons al Qaeda is smuggling into our country. The reason for this is that no video and few photos are available of any nuclear tests that small. In fact there have been only a handful of tests done that yielded less than 10 Kt., and those tests were done to research battlefield nukes where US troops would be in close proximity to the blast. For the past 40 years, nuclear weapons have generally had yields from 10 to 50 Megatons each. One Megaton is the equivalent of 1000 Kilotons.
The point I want to make is that al Qaeda's "suitcase nukes", are very small nuclear weapons with very small yields under 5Kt, there isn't even much of a "mushroom cloud" which soon blows away. Nuclear weapons by today's standards make these "suitcase nukes" look like "popguns". Not that they won't do a great deal of damage, they will. One could destroy most of Downtown Los Angeles, or a sizeable portion of lower Manhattan, but wouldn't have much effect beyond that area. Additionally, these would likely be "ground blasts" rather than the usual "air blast" which increases the radius of the blast area. Much of a ground blast would be blocked from attaining a wide radius by the buildings and terrain. They will not destroy an entire city as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki blasts did which were roughly 10 times larger and detonated at 1800 feet above ground.
FROM JOSEPH FARAH'S G2 BULLETIN
Al-Qaida's U.S. Nuclear Targets
Al-Qaedaలime targets for launching nuclear terrorist attacks are the nine
U.S. cities with the highest Jewish populations, according to captured leaders
and documents. Osama bin Laden is planning what he calls an "American Hiroshima," the ultimate terrorist attack on U.S. cities, using nuclear weapons already smuggled into the country across the Mexican border along with thousands of sleeper agents. (More)

"America's Hiroshima": America's Date with Disaster
Reports are slowly filtering out about a plan by Islamics to detonate several nuclear bombs around the continental United States. Osama bin Laden has named this attack "America's Hiroshima". His logic for giving his plan this name is that the United States is the only world power to use an atomic weapon against an enemy and based on that, it is legal and within Islamic law for him to use such weapons against the American people.
