Imagine all the cases where no one is caught and therefore went unreported. If you wonder why there’s so many people concerned about open borders in the United States, this might be a good start.
On a more serious note, it was warned about several years ago that if a nuclear device was to ever go off in America, resulting in entire cities destroyed and millions of lives lost, the trail will lead back to the Kremlin. Matter of fact, we’ve been warned several times of the plans China and Russia have for America, yet allow ourselves to continue being sold New Lies for Old.
The, Russian mafia, for example is a KGB-controlled gang. The Kremlin uses gangs as fronts for strategic operations. It’s also evidenced in Red Cocaine, where drug cartels have been infiltrated by Russia and are now used to subvert America in one aspect via doping. While every gang might not be under Kremlin control, the ones that are given material like this should be highly suspect. Materials like this are not left in grandma’s basement, but rather, are under close watch of Russian security experts. It’s no accident that these materials simply wind up “lost”. It’s also been claimed that Chechen terrorists acquired Soviet nuclear weapons for al Qaeda. Author Paul L. Williams in his book Osama’s Revenge had once mentioned that al Qaeda has nukes already within the United States, and are plotting an American Hiroshima.
If you still have doubts or can’t stop chuckling at these claims, you can always reference JFK’s interview with Time Magazine, where he mentioned the Russians had a nuclear device blocks away from the White House — and that was decades ago.
Moldovan authorities have teamed up with the FBI in push to prevent nuclear material falling into the hands of extremists in the Middle East and Africa
Criminal gangs with Russian links are operating a thriving black market in nuclear materials in eastern Europe, often with the explicit intent of connecting sellers to Middle Eastern extremist groups including Islamic State.
Authorities working with the FBI have interrupted four attempts by gangs to sell radioactive material in Moldova. The latest known case came in February, when a smuggler offered enough radioactive cesium to contaminate several city blocks, specifically seeking an Islamic State buyer.
The most serious case came in 2011, when a man expressing hatred for the US tried to sell bomb-grade uranium to a Sudanese buyer.
However, successful busts were compromised by striking shortcomings: Key suspects got away; prison sentences were surprisingly short; and gang leaders may have escaped with the bulk of their nuclear contraband.
The Moldovans say the breakdown in cooperation between Russia and the West means that it has become much harder to know whether smugglers are finding ways to move parts of Russia’s vast store of radioactive materials – an unknown quantity of which has leached into the black market.
“We can expect more of these cases,” said Constantin Malic, a Moldovan police officer who investigated all four cases. “As long as the smugglers think they can make big money without getting caught, they will keep doing it.”
“In the age of the Islamic State, it’s especially terrifying to have real smugglers of nuclear bomb material apparently making connections with real buyers,” says Matthew Bunn, a Harvard professor who led a secret study for the Clinton administration on the security of Russia’s nuclear arsenal.
The most serious case began in the spring of 2011, with the investigation of a group led by a shadowy Russian named Alexandr Agheenco, “the colonel” to his cohorts, whom Moldovan authorities believe to be an officer with the Russian FSB, previously known as the KGB. A middle man working for the colonel was recorded arranging the sale of bomb-grade uranium, U-235, and blueprints for a dirty bomb to a man from Sudan, according to several officials. The blueprints were discovered in a raid of the middleman’s home, according to police and court documents.
“He said to the informant on a wire: ‘I really want an Islamic buyer because they will bomb the Americans,'” said Mr Malic, the investigator.
The ringleader, the colonel, got away. Police cannot determine whether he had more nuclear material. His partner, who wanted to “annihilate America,” is out of prison.
