While Obama was out partying again and blaming Republicans, Al Qaeda in Iraq was busy. Really busy finding some more of that non-existent WMD.
Jihadi insurgents rampaging across Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research from a university in the country’s north.
Iraq sent an urgent letter to the United Nations appealing for help to “stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad.”
Nearly 88 pounds of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq’s UN ambassador told UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the letter obtained on Wednesday.
“Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Mohamed Ali Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials “can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”
“These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts,” said Alhakim.
Just as with ISIS’ seizure of chemical weapons facilities, Obama Inc, the UN and the media keep assuring us that there’s nothing to worry about.
A US government source familiar with the matter said the materials were not believed to be enriched uranium and therefore would be difficult to manufacture into a weapon.
“Believed”. Nothing to worry about. I’m sure that a terrorist group with billions of dollars that specializes in suicide bombings won’t figure out a way to kill people with it.
Obama responded to the crisis by fist-bumping with a metal gorilla and having a photo of himself taken with a guy wearing a horse’s head.
America is now a Peter Sellers movie.
