The first question: What does Alexander Litvinenko have to do with the possibility of a nuclear weapon being detonated on American soil?
Nothing directly. Indirectly? Far too much. After all, the former KGB agent once voiced the following enlightening comments:
"When Putin spoke on the anniversary of the founding of the All-Russian Extraordinary Commission (CheKa, 1917) on December twenty, he began his address to his colleagues with a reference to the way former KGB personnel had pretended to be politicians, infiltrated the leadership of the country, and seized power."
Said another way, it seems that Litvinenko was alluding to the idea that the KGB had become a powerful entity unto itself. And corruption in Russia (former Soviet Union) is something that the rest of the world, United States included, should be very concerned about.
Of course, that's just the half of it.
Before collaborating with al-Qaeda, al-Zawahiri was the second and last "emir" of Egyptian Islamic Jihad. Further, he was the leader responsible for, in essence, leading the Egyptian Islamic Jihad into al-Qaeda.
This of course makes him an enemy of America and a Muslim terrorist.
Thus, it seems that we have reports from someone in the know that the KGB (currently the FSB) is corrupt. However, the fact that this corrupt unit has ties to Ayman al-Zawahiri is perhaps a little too much to bare, considering that Osama Bin Laden was reported to be plotting nuclear attacks on U.S. cities. Just because he's gone doesn't mean these plots to attack America with nukes have gone away.
Further, the news of this alliance - that al-Zawahiri might actually have friends within the Soviet secret services - is a scary proposition for all too many reasons. However, just in case you need to hear more on that Soviet corruption, read on.
Murder in a Teapot On January 26th, ABC News reportedly published "Murder in a Teapot". In sum, this is what was reportedly said regarding Alexander Litvinenko's mysterious death (yes, the same guy that said the KGB was corrupt and fingered al-Zawahiri as a former KGB agent). Radioactive Polonium-210 was placed in a teapot and this tea made it to Litvinenko as he met with some Russian buddies of his.
Immediately makes you wonder about those friends of his, doesn't it?
In accordance with this, British officials told ABC News that Litvinenko's "murder was a state sponsored assassination orchestrated by the Russian security services." They came to this conclusion based on "forensic evidence and intelligence reports. . ."
Then, of course, there's the fact that Russian businessman Andrei Lugovoi has now been charged with the murder.
A businessman? Well, that doesn't support the whole conspiracy theory on Russian corruption, does it?
It does if the businessman was affiliated with the KGB until 1996 (ninth department of the KGB - a bodyguard unit). Though he denies the murder and having ever been in the FSB, a former employer named Badri Patarkatsishvili had the following to say.
"There is no such thing as a former KGB agent."
Does that apply to Ayman al-Zawahiri?
After all, beyond the fact that the Russians have nuclear weapons, the scientists to teach al-Qaeda how to make their own, and the manpower to help in numerous ways, there's also another thing to be concerned about.
Simply put, those damned dead drop sites.
Without going into too much detail (read the article on dirty bomb and nuclear suitcase bombs at secretsofsurvival.com for much, much more) there is a plethora of evidence supporting that during the Cold War, Soviets spies brought suitcase nuclear weapons into the United States and hid them. That's right, they hid them. Now think about it: Who would know where these might be?
So what's the answer if even an iota of all this is true? First, close the Mexican border entirely. Second, pray for Homeland Security. Third?
