Blame it on Rio!
ONLY now is someone taking into consideration the possibility of a terrorist attack at the Olympics using a DIRTY BOMB detonation?
"dirt·y bomb - - noun: - - a nuclear weapon improvised from radioactive nuclear waste material and conventional explosives."
"A dirty bomb or radiological dispersal device (RDD) is a . . . radiological weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives. The purpose of the weapon is to contaminate the area around the dispersal agent/conventional explosion with radioactive material, serving primarily as an area denial device against civilians"
From the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter:
"UN sends experts to Rio to guard against ISIS dirty bomb attack"
"The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has loaned hi-tech radiation monitors - including personal detectors and portable scanners - for use on the ground throughout the Olympic Games opening in Rio on Saturday, August 6 - in case ISIS tries to set off a dirty bomb attack."
Experts as described at the last minute under the auspices of the UN and not organic Brazilian assets? Poor planning!
