Nuclear Attack on D.C. Inevitable, Senate Committee Told


"The blast from the 10-kiloton bomb — similar to the bomb dropped over Hiroshima during World War II — would kill up to one in 10 tourists visiting the Washington Monument and send shards of glass flying the length of the National Mall, in a scenario that has become increasingly likely to occur in a major U.S. city in recent years, panel members told a Senate committee yesterday."

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs was told yesterday that a nuclear attack on Washington D.C. was "inevitable" and would likely occur in the next twenty years.

"The scenarios we discuss today are very hard for us to contemplate, and so emotionally traumatic and unsettling that it is tempting to push them aside," said Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent and committee chairman. "However, now is the time to have this difficult conversation, to ask the tough questions, and then to get answers as best we can and take preparatory and preventive action."

Ashton B. Carter, co-director of the Preventive Defense Project at Harvard University, said the likelihood of a nuclear attack on U.S. soil is undetermined, but it has increased with the proliferation of weapons by Iran and North Korea and the failure to secure Russia's nuclear arsenal following the Cold War.

As we all know a nuclear attack on the United States would allow all of the "national crisis" legislation the Bush administration has passed to come into effect, basically a declaration of martial law would be inevitable, all power would be concentrated in the executive branch, Congress would not be allowed to investigate the attack for six months, FEMA camps would open up for "dissidents" and "terrorist sympathizers," elections would most likely be cancelled, and the remaining constitutional protections not yet undermined by the Bush administration would be thrown out entirely.

News stories like this should scare the hell out of those of us who know the truth about 9/11 and the very likely possibility that the elites who plotted 9/11 are busy planning the next one before the 2008 elections.

Spooks ..

Yeah,this could be pretty bad news Ashton B Carter is like a super-spook or something ..
He's even been to North-Korea about the same time Rumsfeld sold them 2 nuclear reactors when
he was a board-member of ABB .

There seems to be a contradiction

in the statement: "the likelihood of a nuclear attack on U.S. soil is undetermined, but it has increased..." If it is undetermined, how can it increase?

I can explain that :)

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know. There's another way to phrase that and that is that the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. It is basically saying the same thing in a different way. Simply because you do not have evidence that something does exist does not mean that you have evidence that it doesn't exist .[Osama Bin Laden is] either alive and well or alive and not too well or not alive.I don't know what the facts are but somebody's certainly going to sit down with him and find out what he knows that they may not know, and make sure he knows what they know that he may not know..

It's neocon-lingo, don't expect it to make any sense ..
