While newspapers carry stories about dirty bombs from time to time few readers know enough about these bombs to be scared. And scared they should be. The threat of a nuclear strike is more real than ever, and the government, while trying to do its best, is playing from way behind. Some experts even wonder if we should be spending less money on trying to prevent it, and more on trying to deal with one after it happens. This is an eye-opening investigation into the world of nuclear arms, radioactive machinery, and Al Qaeda terrorists. This book is filled with shocking revelations regarding huge security gaps, radioactive materials, missing nuclear arsenals, as well as the simplicity of technology needed to detonate what many experts have called "Weapons of Mass Disruption."
