Department of Homeland Security Has Issued Guidelines for Cleaning Up After a Dirty Bomb

This should make us all feel better....the Department of Homeland Security has issued guidelines for cleaning up after a dirty bomb, or what they call an "improvised nuclear device."

The announcement follows the disclosure last month that the U.S. government has been monitoring radiation levels at more than 100 mosques, homes, businesses and other sites in and around the nation's capital and at least five other cities since Sept. 11, 2001. Law enforcement officials suspect terrorists have secreted nuclear or radiological weapons inside the country – part of al-Qaida's decade-long plot to detonate nuclear weapons in seven to nine major U.S. cities simultaneously in an operation it calls "American Hiroshima."

According to one source, Al-Qaida's prime targets for launching nuclear terrorist attacks are the U.S. cities with the highest Jewish populations, according to captured leaders and documents.

Maybe people will start to pay attention and take the threat seriously or not.
