Al Qaida Claims The Bomb

Dr. al-Zawahri claims that al Qaida is now a nuclear power. It's hard to imagine any possible deterent effect of the claim, but it does inspire rational terror. That is motive enough to lie about the subject in my view, but that nuclear experts are taking the charge seriously, though with a grain of salt, indicates what a complete failure the Bush Administration has been in pursuing seriously Cooperative Threat Reduction and non-proliferation.

Of course, the first warning that we may have could very well be a mushroom cloud over New York or Washington DC. Isn't it interesting how rhetoric that goes around, comes around?
