Al-Qaida has smuggled tactical nuclear weapons and
uranium into the U. S. across the Mexican border and is
planning to launch a major terrorist attack using a
combination of nukes and dirty nukes, according to an
interview with Osama bin Laden's biographer, Hamid Mir,
in WorldThreats. com.
The information confirms reports previously published in
Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin and in a new book by Paul L.
Williams, "Dunces of Doomsday."
"I came up with this conclusion after eight years of
investigation and research in the remote mountain areas
of Afghanistan and Pakistan. I traveled to Iraq, Iran,
Sudan, Syria, Uzbekistan and Russia and met dozens of
people," Mir said. "I interviewed not only al-Qaida
operatives but met scientists and top U. S. officials
also. I will have the details in my coming book. At least
two al-Qaida operatives claimed that the organization
smuggled suitcase nukes inside America. But I have no
details on who did it. But I do have details about who
smuggled uranium inside America and how."
Mir claims his information is based not only on what
al-Qaida operatives, including bin Laden and Ayman
al-Zawahiri, told him, but also upon his own independent
research as a journalist. Mir says his upcoming book, a
biography of bin Laden, will disclose al-Qaida's nuclear
"As far as I know, they smuggled three suitcase nukes
from Russia to Europe," Mir says about al-Qaida. "They
smuggled many kilos of enriched uranium inside America
for their dirty bomb projects. They said in 1999 that
they must have material for more than six dirty bombs in
America. They tested at least one dirty bomb in the Kunar
province of Afghanistan in 2000. They have planned an
attack bigger than 9-11, even before 9-11 happened. Osama
bin Laden trained 42 fighters to destroy the American
economy and military might. Nineteen were used on 9-11,
23 are still 'sleeping' inside America waiting for a
wake-up call from bin Laden."
Mir said al-Qaida operatives told him that tactical
nuclear weapons were smuggled over the Mexican border
before Sept. 11, 2001.
Mir said again he believes al-Qaida may use its nuclear
arsenal after the U. S. attacks Iran in an effort to stop
its nuclear weapons program.
"This is my opinion," he says. "No al-Qaida leader has
ever admitted that they are working with Iran. I also
think that, maybe, the Iranians will organize some
attacks inside America and you will accuse al-Qaida."
Asked why al-Qaida hasn't used nuclear weapons it already
possesses, Mir said: "They are waiting for the proper
time. They want the U. S. to be involved in a mass
killing of Muslims, so that they will have some
justification. That is what I was told by a top al-Qaida
leader in the Kunar Mountains of Afghanistan."
Mir made similar comments in an earlier interview with G2
Hamid Mir's credibility skyrocketed when he accurately
predicted in G2 Bulletin last month the imminent release
of a new recorded communiqu from bin Laden through
al-Jazeera, the Arabic TV network. Two days later, bin
Laden's tape was the focus of international news
"If you think that my information and analysis about bin
Laden's location is correct," said Mir, "then please
don't underestimate my analysis about his nuclear threat
