Nuclear Attacks

Date: 07-20-05
Host: George Noory
Guests: Steve Quayle, Shane Conner, Richard Arnold

Experts on terrorism and nuclear weaponry, author Steve Quayle and Shane Conner of KI4U, Inc. discussed the reality of nuclear terrorism and how we can protect ourselves.

Quayle said that there could be as many as 4-5 dozen terrorist nuclear weapons within the U.S., and he warned that the anniversary date of the bombing on Hiroshima, August 6th, might be a time of an attack, since bin Laden has referred to "an American Hiroshima." According to Quayle's sources, the cities of Atlanta, Beaumont, TX; Boston, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Seattle, and Washington have been possibly targeted by al-Qaeda nuclear weapons.

Conner believes the US government has dropped the ball by not offering enough civil defense training to citizens. The rate of survivability is good after an attack, but only if people protect themselves from the fallout, he said. For instance, if someone sees a mushroom cloud, they should move perpendicular to the direction in which the wind is blowing. More tips are presented on this page from Conner's site.

Goodbye Scotty

James Doohan, best known for playing the engineer "Scotty" on the original Star Trek series, passed away today at the age of 85. Reportedly, Doohan has requested that his ashes be sent into space. The phrase "Beam me up, Scotty," referring to the transporter, will live on in the pop culture lexicon. First hour guest, Star Trek consultant Richard Arnold discussed the series and the death of Doohan. Doohan, he said, greatly enjoyed participating in the Star Trek conventions and took pride in the fact that a number of people told him they had gone into engineering because they were inspired by his character.
