Nuke Scare: Obama Warns of ’Loose Nukes Being Detonated in Manhattan’, Plays War ’Mind-Games’ with World Leaders
With deliberately-placed words, Obama dropped his own ’bomb’ on the press at the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague, raising the prospect of terrorists detonating nukes in Manhattan.
When asked about his position on Russia and the recent Ukrainian Crisis, Obama answered that Russia’s influence was localized to their region, and doesn’t represent a threat to the United States. He then resurrected the specter of terrorism.
"They don’t pose the number one national security threat to the United States," Obama said. "I continue to be much more concerned, when it comes to our security, of the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan."
Obama’s nuclear ’warning’ comes on the heels of the report that world leaders played an interactive nuclear war game "designed to test their responses to a terrorist atomic ’dirty bomb’ attack".
The Independent writes:
The German chancellor grumbled at being asked to play games and take tests with the Prime Minister, US and Chinese presidents around a table with dozens of heads of state at a nuclear summit in The Hague.
Her complaints were overruled because Mr Obama was keen on the idea and in on the surprise.
In the war game, played out by actors in a series of short films, a terrorist attack with an atomic "dirty bomb" takes place in the financial heart of an unnamed but Western metropolis. "It could be the City of London, or Wall Street, Milan or anywhere", summit leaders were told.
As the scenario unfolded, it emerged that the terrorists are from an unidentified global terror network and they have stolen nuclear material from an unidentified country that had poorly secured its radiological and nuclear stockpiles.
The bomb is being built in a clandestine laboratory with stolen uranium. It is an improvised explosive device but deadly and the clock is ticking, the leaders were told. Hundreds of thousands of people could be about to die.
"They had to give an answer on their own, in real time. It was like a test. It put them on the spot. Should they inform the public or keep them in the dark," said a diplomatic source.
"Should they work with other countries or stand alone to try to thwart or minimise the attack? How should they make the cold calculation of how to get a more sustainable human cost in terms of deaths?"
US officials said that the unconventional approach had been designed to give a "scare you to death" shock to make leaders seriously think about the security of nuclear materials.
Red Ice raised concerns last year with a special report, "Red Ice Extra: Insight", examining rumors of a nuke in Charleston, South Carolina, as referenced by Senator Lindsey Graham.
Insight - A Nuke in Charleston, SC?
A military source, unknown to us, recently reported to Infowars a secret transfer of nuclear weapons from a base in Texas to the East Coast of the United States. Rumors are now that Charleston in South Carolina might be the target of a false flag nuclear event around the 12th anniversary of 9/11. John Kale, our correspondent who is in Charleston, reports to us via video.[...]
Reports of an underwater explosion in the Atlantic came last October, as well as "suspensions from top generals within the military establishment".

Tensions with Russia, lax nuclear security, missing warheads, missing Boeing 777’s and Obama’s ’warning’: These puzzle pieces, when assembled, should trouble those who seek to raise awareness of, and thwart, false flag nuclear incidents.
