U.S. ‘not technically capable’ of detecting WMD –

Terrorists are teaming up with narco-traffickers to try to sneak their operatives and weapons of mass destruction into the U.S. because they may sense vulnerability.

“It’s a fairly trivial process to shield that bomb or that material so that it’s not picked up by even radiation detection,” says Laura Holgate, now Senior Director, WMD Terrorism & Threat Reduction at the National Security Council.

Holgate was interviewed several months ago while she was the Vice President for Russia/NIS Programs at the Nuclear Threat Initiative.

The Nuclear Threat Initiative produced a movie several years ago called “Last Best Chance.” The story is fiction, but every scene in the movie is based on “two notebooks full of documented facts,” says Holgate.
