    Am I the only one paying attention to the fact that he acquired these materials domestically? So much for Homeland Security.

Moreover, he had been purchasing the radioactive material for his bomb from an AMERICAN company. He began his purchases right after Barack Obama was elected president. Manuals detailing how to construct dirty bombs were also found at his home. This man essentially was a wealthy Timothy McVeigh. This story has seen very little coverage by the mainstream media. A few years ago, in East Texas, some KKK members were busted with a chemical weapon, which had been completed. That was hardly reported at all by the mainstream media either.

    Now we can question all day Iran's intentions, and arguments can be made on both sides until hell freezes over, but this guy was one of our own, and was not only planning a terrorist act with nuclear materials, but was well underway to making it happen. If not for a pissed off wife who killed him, we might very well be seeing the results of his planning on the news channels.

    America has its jihadists too. They just call themselves by a different name, but they are the same thing. While our leaders are telling us about the dangers of another 911 from overseas, they had better pay attention to what's in our own back yard. The greater danger, at this time, lies within our own borders.

    Article is here.

    We have one or two. Iran has a hole brigade of them. They are called the "Quds Force".

    There is no comparison here. Iran's actions are still far more troubling.

    Good point.

    The fact that a civilian got his hands on not one but TWO radioactive isotopes is SHOCKING to say the least.

    Having read a couple years ago about the amount and availabilty of isotopes in this world is sufficient to amke build a shelter. The Russian mafiais the greatest offender as far as I know. They will sell it to anyone.

    Oooh a dirty bomb made of thorium 232! I'm so scared. Well, not of radiation. I'd be more worried about its explosive capacity when it oxidizes rather than anything else.


    What explosive capacity?

    And no, you are incorrect, Inhalation is and equal concern for its toxicity. Ingestion as well, but it is indeed dangerous if inhaled.


    When it oxidizes it simply turns black.

    Here is my take. The guy was dangerous because he was definitely trying to make a dirty bomb. I really have no idea about the level of his technical knowledge or whether or not he could pull it off. There just isn't enough solid information on this guy or his motives, only that his wife is a decent shot. However it should be a wake up call to law enforcement. We talked about domestic terrorism a lot at the state and local level but it just wasn't treated as serious as it should be. The point here is that it only takes one, and we should be vigilant. The issue here is that domestic terrorists aren't simply very active, and rarely do they actually carry out acts of violence as compared to foreign terrorists.

    While I'm obviously concerned about domestic terrorism, I don't lay awake at night over it. I am however working with local and state law enforcement to dramatically improve their intelligence and information sharing at all levels, which will go a long way towards keeping up on domestic threats.

    In the end, Karma won.

    Agreed, and the fact that we now have an administration in place showing more in the form of weakness instead of steadfast resistance to this program moving forward in Iran is troubling.

    You make very good points. Fact is domestic terrorism is rare. Which makes being "vigilant" all that much harder. Intelligence gathering and information sharing are assuredly one of the most important aspects for this topic and numerous other law enforcement and homeland security issues.

    I'm not that concerned for several reasons.

    1) We don't actually know that happened. The only facts here are a raw story link and a whole bunch of "unnamed sources" that say the guy had jars "labeled uranium" and that he supposedly purchased them from an American company.

    2) Even if true, this isn't that shocking. You can buy tiny amounts of radioactive material from all sorts of places. Uranium Ore Nothing illegal or particularly terrifying about that.

    3) With the level of weapons knowledge that any individual or small group has, uranium is an incredibly ineffective weapon. It's only really dangerous in the hands of state actors or groups with similar levels of resources.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
