Claims that the Arctic Sea – the Russian ship apparently hijacked and missing for two weeks – was carrying a nuclear weapon bound for Osama bin Laden are being investigate by agents for the British intelligence service MI6, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
The ship was found today 300 miles off the West African coast and the crew was safe, but a team of specialists in locating nuclear substances was dispatched from Moscow to the scene.
This whole episode stinks of a "rogue" intelligence operation. The article mentions "Bin Laden's" recent claim that he would soon have a nuclear device in his hands. Since we know Bin Laden is dead, and that 911 was an inside job, this situation appears to be "setting the stage" for some sort of staged incident.
Importantly, it does not matter if nuclear material was really stolen here- those that are running the operation only need a credible story to cover for the new attack.
It's very difficult to know what is really going on, but it pays to be vigilant. Let us hope that those in the intelligence community, who think 911 was a bad idea, can act to prevent another one.
