ZARQAWI NUKE PLOT... COMING TO AMERICA?

Recurrent intelligence reports say al Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi has obtained a nuclear device or is preparing a radiological explosive -- or dirty bomb -- for an attack, according to U.S. officials, who also say analysts are unable to gauge the reliability of the information's sources.

The classified reports have been distributed to U.S. intelligence agencies for several consecutive months and say Zarqawi, al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, has stored the nuclear device or dirty bomb in Afghanistan, said officials familiar with the intelligence.

Or perhaps the bomb is on its way to Washington D.C. or NYC? Wouldn't that be a much more effective psychological target for Al-Qaeda? Why waste the bomb in Iraq, when so much more physical and emotional damage could be done by detonating it on U.S. soil...

James over at OTB has some thoughts on this as well...
