al-Qaeda plot to use chemical weapons is foiled
« on: June 02, 2013, 12:20:55 AM »
From the BBC:

Quote
The authorities in Iraq say they have uncovered an al-Qaeda plot to use chemical weapons, as well as to smuggle them to Europe and North America.

Defence ministry spokesman Mohammed al-Askari said five men had been arrested after military intelligence monitored their activities for three months.

Three workshops for manufacturing the chemical agents, including sarin and mustard gas, were uncovered, he added.

Remote-controlled toy planes were also seized at the workshops.

Mr Askari said they were to have been used to release the chemical agents over the target from a "safe" distance of 1.5km (1 mile), reports the BBC's Rami Ruhayem in Baghdad. [Bold in original]

I don't go to many movies, but that sure sounds like something lifted from the plot of an action picture.

Why should we be expected to believe any of this?

News today is totally manufactured to put the Leftists in the most favorable light.

They can't find any news on Benghazi, but they accomplished this?  Don't make me laugh. :whistle:
