The news report that ISIS Has Seized 88 Pounds Of Uranium In Northern Iraq is quite disturbing. Reports I’ve seen are focused on whether the nuclear material can be used to make a nuclear weapon. The issue that worries me, though, is whether this material will be used in radiological dispersion devices, AKA “Dirty Bombs.” Use of these devices in key areas of our society, such as Wall Street and the nation’s capital, would create social and economic chaos on a level not before seen in this country; beyond that of even the terrorist attacks of 9-11-2001.
