ISIS Planning US Nuclear Attack In Next 12 Months: Report

Tyler Durden's picture

Three weeks after the first supposed attack by Islamic State supporters in the US, in which two ISIS "soldiers" wounded a security guard before they were killed in Garland, Texas, the time has come to raise the fear stakes.

In an article posted in the terrorist group's English-language online magazine Dabiq (which as can be see below seems to have gotten its design cues straight from Madison Avenue and is just missing glossy pages filled with 'scratch and sniff' perfume ads ) ISIS claimed that it has enough money to buy a nuclear weapon from Pakistan and "carry out an attack inside the United States next year."

In the article, the ISIS columnist said the weapon could be smuggled into the United States via its southern border with Mexico.

Curiously, the author of the piece is John Cantlie, a British photojournalist who was abducted by ISIS in 2012 and has been held hostage by the organization ever since; he has appeared in several videos since his kidnapping and criticized Western powers.

John Cantlie

As the Telegraph notes, "Mr Cantlie, whose fellow journalist hostages have all either been released or beheaded, has appeared in the group’s propaganda videos and written previous pieces. In his latest work, presumed to be written under pressure but in his hall-mark style combining hyperbole, metaphor and sarcasm, he says that President Obama’s policies for containing Isil have demonstrably failed and increased the risk to America."

Cantlie describes the following "hypothetical" scenario in Dabiq :

Let me throw a hypothetical operation onto the table. The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank, so they call on their wil?yah in Pakistan to purchase a nuclear device through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region.


The weapon is then transported overland until it makes it to Libya, where the muj?hid?n move it south to Nigeria. Drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible.


The nuke and accompanying muj?hid?n arrive on the shorelines of South America and are transported through the  porous borders of Central America before arriving in Mexico and up to the border with the United States.


From there it’s just a quick hop through a smuggling tunnel and hey presto, they’re mingling with another 12 million “illegal” aliens in America with a nuclear bomb in the trunk of their car.

Cantlie continues:

Perhaps such a scenario is far-fetched but it’s the sum of all fears for Western intelligence agencies and it’s infinitely more possible today than it was just one year ago. And if not a nuke, what about a few thousand tons of ammonium nitrate explosive?


That’s easy enough to make. The Islamic State make no secret of the fact they have every intention of attacking America on its home soil and they’re not going to mince about with two muj?hid?n taking down a dozen casualties if it originates from the Caliphate. They’ll be looking to do something big, something that would make any past operation look like a squirrel shoot, and the more groups that pledge allegiance the more possible it becomes to pull off something truly epic.


Remember, all of this has happened in less than a year. How more dangerous will be the lines of communication and supply a year on from today? If the West completely failed to spot the emergence of the Islamic State and then the allies who so quickly pledged allegiance to it from around the world, what else of massive significance are they going to miss next?

One can, of course, debate just how much the West "failed to spot the emergence of ISIS" considering it was not only the CIA which initially trained the terrorist organization in Jordan in 2012, but according to recently declassified Pentagon documents, the US was well aware the outcome its attempt to overthrow Syria's Assad would have on the region, in the process "creating" ISIS, aka al Qaeda 2.0.

In other words, even the "hypothetical operation" involving a nuclear attack on US soil would implicitly have the blessing of the US government. Which, considering the way the stock market surges every time the US economy deteriorates further on its way towards recession, probably means that a mushroom cloud appearing in some major US metropolitan area is just what the E-mini algos would need to send the S&P500 limit up.

Finally, we leave it up to our readers to decide for themselves just who is behind the production of the Islamic State's magazine Dabiq, whose latest issue, #9, is shown below. One thing is clear: unlike the Greek finance minister and the European Commission, ISIS knows all about purging metadata after posting a pdf to avoid identification of the original author.

Nice, inflict yourself intentionally so that you can get the sympathy votes from your allies (UK, Canada) and patriotic citizenry sheeps to go crush your master's (Israel) enemies.

"John Cantlie"! Hilarious. That's almost as good as "Josh Earnest".

I Can'tLie. The name really made me laugh. 


An interesting question, does Mr. Cantlie have any family that were in the press after his 'abduction?'

Didnt you just say the CIA created it? Wesley Clark (former commander of NATO) said the our allies, meaning Irsael, created it.
Talk about what people can do about the TTP you fucking fruity ass brainwashers.

...and this nuclear attack will come by way of Canada, Mexico or the Carribean so the MIC must send troops and build bases on all these sovereign countrie's soil.

propaganda #101

Of course, the obvious step of shutting down our borders is out of the question ...

When it happens the CIA will orchestrate it flawlessly. The media will drink the cool aid and the war machine will have its new battle cry. The bankers and the Fed will have created cover to continiue the rational for more QE and thus enrich themselves and next year we can honor the fallen soldiers on Memorial day again. Rinse and Repeat.

We already know ISIS is a creature of the US and Israel.  Who do they want to target?

I would guess New York or Chicago, for maximum impact and to cover up some financial crimes.

But then, maybe there is a city filled full of bad goyim that they would like to be rid of in this manner?  OK City II: Nuclear Bugaboo, perhaps?

If Dillinger had published glossy, photo filled descriptions of his impending crimes he'd still be alive today.

I'll bet money the guy on page 8 is an Irsaeli. Classic.....

So better prepared

It depends on what the definition of is is.

Jeeeze ANOTHER stand-down false flag?  ISIS was CREATED by the USA gov't

Perfect name: "Can't Lie" - it MUST be true! Except that hes part of the Isis, Site Intellignce, Rita Katz, CIA plot for Gulf War 3.0. Be afraid shitizen!

Hey I thought the NSA bulk collected everything on the planet? You mean they cant stop a boston bomber, cant track "self radicalized" Americans and now are going to get beat by people that fight in pajamas and sandals?

I'll believe it isn't a false flag the day 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. hits a couple million degrees.

Fucking Zionists who now control the MIC in the USA would be the biggest beneficiaries of any attack within the U.S., as it stands now and for some time (and will for the long term).

Israeli Zionists literally set MENA ablaze, and their "Pearl Harbor" allowing them to set current toppling of major MENA governments into motion began with the 9/11 attack (engineered by Israeli controlled proxies).

People think these types desire wealth above all else, but they desire wealth only as a tool to purchase and concentrate ultimate power over future global events, and to shape history, above all else.

Trogdor's picture

Hey - watch it - those people in pajamas and sandals are able to operate, transport, supply, and maintain the most advanced weapon systems in the world .... far better in fact than armies that have been training for years on those same weapon systems.  Those pajama and sandals wearin' turrurists are the idiot savant miracle workers of warfare!  They can't read, but dammit they can squish trained armies like bugs and run diagnostics on targeting systems with all the controls and instructions written in English!  If Can't-Lie is telling us that they're going to manage to smuggle a highly sophisticated weapon system thousands of miles across an ocean into the US and deploy said sophisticated system flawlessly without any help from any government that might a)make sure their progress wasn't impeded in any way, and b) make sure that the weapon system was placed in the most propaganda-effective place - well, we gotta believe him! He can't lie, after all! /s

The only way I'd ever believe that a "terrorist" organization actually managed to get a nuke into the US is if they set it off in D.C. while Capitol Hill and the WhiteHouse were infested with the resident pond scum... and then I'd wait to see who walked out of the smoke and proclaimed themselves the "savoir"....

Evil Peanut's picture

I would take this seriously considering that the hacker named Guccifer released emails from military and intelligence officials that discussed setting off a false flag nuke in Pennsylvania to rally the sheeple to their causes and bend them to their will. The elites will do absolutely anything to stay in power and remain at the top of the food chain.

More info here


‘Guccifer’ told the Times that a city in Pennsylvania, leading to speculation that it will be either Pittsburgh or Philadelphia, will be targetted

Theosebes Goodfellow's picture

Blah, blah, blah. Look, Obama, (and any subsequent US president), can nix this shit in the bud by simply stating that the day a nuclear device is detonated in the US or one of its terrirotries the US will explode nukes over Mecca, Medina, Islamabad and Teheran. It doesn't matter whose bomb it was. Everybody gets payback. Period. That'll cut this BS to the quick. MAD, bitchez.

I really really hope no banksters are harmed in this 'ISIS nuke attack'

"Guccifer – the Romanian hacker who accessed private email accounts of numerous top government & military officials as well as the Bush & Rockefeller family – is quoted in the New York Times as predicting a nuclear attack on Chicago sometime in 2015."

We're not even halfway through the year. Plenty of time left.

@ Evil Peanut: Quite right, which is why 'ISIS' is such a transparent tool:  "Perhaps such a scenario is far-fetched but it’s the sum of all fears for Western intelligence agencies..." < The writer could not be so naive.  The psychopaths feed on this stuff.  Where no threat exists, they invent one!  From Al Qaeda to Global Warming (environmental Al Qaeda), false flag agents are stock in trade!  MIC insiders likely tingle with anticipation.  The stage is set for demolition.  All that's needed is cover: an excuse.  The pathological environment where psychopaths thrive is only temporary, and they know it, so they always think big, prolong the agony, make the most of and off it while it lasts, and leave behind a trail of devastation and heartache. So much could be avoided!  So much is unnecessary!  One can only hope that sane heads will take action to pre-empt the worst chaos. Given the apparent purge among military brass, who among the initiated is left to know and care and make a difference?

Evil Peanut's picture

@Lore a complete purge of the federal government would be a great start indeed

TruxtonSpangler's picture

Patriot act isnt required any longer thats why there is bipartisan support to repeal it. Now there is qualified immunity for telecoms that voluntarily (get paid) to give big bro all their data. Patriot act not needed. BTW FireEye is the first company to sign up on the gov teet for this qualified immunity. Any data that passes through their appliances is fed to gov. Think of the implicatiopns...

Lemme see here.  The mag is "theirs" (as in not mine) all the dudes got their index fingers up, but I guess that's for sniffing their pits and has nothing to do with the "One" Allah ... but we're told different by Our Fearless Leaders, so it must all be about the lack of Charmin Double Soft 3-Ply Tissue, the cover on their mag states that "Allah Plots" but that must simply refer to commercial zoning restrictions on baby back rib shacks, John Kerry is idolized (WTF?), all this time nobody's invaded, shot, rocketed, or whatever the Country Formerly Known As Palestine (and before that, The British Mandate and Protectorate of/for Palestine, thanks reptilian overlords and Prince) our friends/neighbors/pals/enemies/good buds/vetted comrades/great guys who we would love to have as sons in laws who we (the West) appear to be arming and fighting at the very same time (long of military arms and ammo biz, short of pork producers) are the ones and the same threatening the West/US/the guys who they keep saying ought not exist, with nuclear annihilation and if I didn't know any better, I'd simply guess that the mag's fear porn in this case was published on behalf of some benefactor with a hidden agenda of tightening security somewhere by taking Granny Oldsnortch who cannot stand out of here wheelchair at the Buttfucknwhere regional airstrip in Upyonder Maine for a full physical examination including enema and colonoscopy because she was very evasive when asked to name who Nicolas Tesla's greatest beneficiary linked to the Illumination of man by AC power.
But nonetheless, I remain somewhat confused and will devote the rest of the day to personal introspection particularly because there remains no doubt in my mind that our forgiveness with Iran will lead to another nuclear race in the ever so stable Middle East that certainly will never impact we, the sponsors of Peace and Serenity.

Don't worry.
Shit'll buff out

PS  It was these guys that Barry was referring to when he gave that speech at the wine and cheese platter deal in SF about them "clinging to their Guns and Korans", was it not?

DC!!!! Oh please please please!!!! After all, there lies the Pentagram and it "lost" a cool trillion-ish just prior to 9/11. Isn't that a finacial crime? Not to mention all the financial crimes the criminal gang commits on a daily basis.

Probably happen while the criminal gang is in recess anyway. Am I evil?

They'll never nuke Manhattan. There are more Jews there than in Israel. The Zionists wouldn't allow their ISIS toadies to do it. No they'll pick a city with a majority goyim population. Can't be hurting fellow tribesmen, even if for a good cause.

Every day that goes by, there are a lot less of them. Part of their problem.

Has anyone ever taken a poll to see how many Americans believe 9/11 was done by .gov? Maybe over 50%? Would be interesting to know.

And did anyone notice the size of the pressure cooker that they blew up yesterday at the DC Mall? It sure wouldn't have fit in the Tsarnaev brother's backpacks. Just sayin. Although there were others who had backpacks that big.

Damn, more WMDs!!!!   Does Colin Powell have more pics? well, I guess in this day and age we don't need them.

Quickly, just send the troops!!!!   I know this time is real, they wouldn't fool us twice, right?

Billy the Poet's picture

At least Powell had the decency to disappear from public life after selling out his country.

Kayman's picture


I always thought Powell was set up as the only credible Bush/Cheney mouthpiece.

And I often wonder if all these lying c--ksuckers ever wonder if they had left Saddam and Assad alone- at least that way they had a defined target.

Democratic nation-building in the Middle East is like fucking for virginity. 

Billy the Poet's picture

Powell did seem to be just about the only person in the Bush administration who, despite any wrong doing, actually had a soul.  Cheny, Rumsfeld and Rice were automatons and Bush himself was transformed from a man of slighty above average intelligence into a mumbling, bumbling idiot.

As for nation building, the real goal is simply to maintain regional discord. The elites use the "let's you and him fight" method to good effect both at home and abroad.

Not Too Important's picture

And those of us who believed that, turned out wrong.

Fuck Powell. If he had real balls, he'd apologize for his lies and all the deaths he helped cause.

He's a disgrace to his uniform, his country, and God.

Well forgive me for saying that Powell was perhaps the least scummy of a bunch of slimy scuzzballs. I feel like I've failed my nation, my family but worst of all I've failed you.
