An ISIS Dirty Bomb?


This sounds like the plot of a Hollywood movie: “In the backwaters of Eastern Europe, authorities working with the FBI have interrupted four attempts in the past five years by gangs with suspected Russian connections that sought to sell radioactive material to Middle Eastern extremists.” The article also mentions that the seller in the last foiled attempt specifically sought a buyer in ISIS. While it’s probably good that these plots are being foiled, this article gives an interesting perspective into perhaps counter-productive methods used by the police and FBI to curtail these schemes, but allowing kingpins to get away…Worth keeping an eye on Moldova, a country that tends to be forgotten.
