WikiLeaks: Al-Qaida Close to Producing WMDs

This isn't completely unexpected, but the realization that the terrorist groups are gaining access to more and more "workable and efficient" biological, chemical and nuclear weapons is very sobering:

"Al-Qaida on brink of using nuclear bomb"

Al-Qaida is on the verge of producing radioactive weapons after sourcing nuclear material and recruiting rogue scientists to build "dirty" bombs, according to leaked diplomatic documents.

A leading atomic regulator has privately warned that the world stands on the brink of a "nuclear 9/11".

Security briefings suggest that jihadi groups are also close to producing "workable and efficient" biological and chemical weapons that could kill thousands if unleashed in attacks on the West.

Thousands of classified American cables obtained by the WikiLeaks website and passed to The Daily Telegraph detail the international struggle to stop the spread of weapons-grade nuclear, chemical and biological material around the globe.

It had to happen sooner or later.

The briefings also state that al-Qaida documents found in Afghanistan in 2007 revealed that "greater advances" had been made in bioterrorism than was previously realized.

An Indian national security adviser told American security personnel in June 2008 that terrorists had made a "manifest attempt to get fissile material" and "have the technical competence to manufacture an explosive device beyond a mere dirty bomb".

Alerts about the smuggling of nuclear material, sent to Washington from foreign U.S. embassies, document how criminal and terrorist gangs were trafficking large amounts of highly radioactive material across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

After describing numerous incidences of weapons-grade nuclear material and cargoes of uranium and plutonium being transported across various borders, the article concludes:

Tomihiro Taniguchi, the deputy director general of the IAEA, has privately warned America that the world faces the threat of a "nuclear 9/11" if stores of uranium and plutonium were not secured against terrorists.

Agan, this scenario will happen at some point. I just wonder if we'll be here to see it.

Folk, with this and

It looks like we're entering the end game. Well, we know there are lots of twist and turns....but this is so "in step" with prophecy its kind of "in your face".

Indeed. We're watching this all evolve in real time. Its just amazing. The accuracy and predictability of biblical prophecy sometimes leaves me speechless.
