How Credible Are WND's Nuke Warnings?
Topic: WorldNetDaily
World O'Crap reports on the latest alarmist claims from WorldNetDaily that Osama bin Laden's gonna nuke us all, and soon.

WND's main source for the claim that al-Oaida has smuggled comes from Paul L. Williams, who 1) is trying to sell a book and 2) has been making smiliar claims for months (as WO'C noted).

WO'C also details the factually challenged history of Juval Aviv, who makes the claim in a July 9 WND article that "terrorists will try to carry out an attack on the United States within the next 90 days." Turns out there are questions over whether he was the "former Israeli counterterrorism intelligence officer" he claims to be and was a source on stories that later turned out to be false.
