“Nuclear and radiological materials are of particular concern because of their potential to harm large numbers of people and disrupt the U.S. economy."
-- U.S Customs and Border Protection
Nuclear terrorism is a real threat.
The danger of a terrorist acquiring nuclear materials is one of the most urgent and serious threats to global security. In fact, in the last two decades almost 2,500 incidents of trafficking radioactive material have been reported to the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) by member states.
Today’s terrorists don’t need special nuclear materials, such as uranium and plutonium, to create chaos. A small quantity of radioactive material that is routinely and safely employed in medical and industrial applications can cause significant radiation contamination to a wide area when part of a dirty bomb.
