Conservative News Update:
In an episode of 24 from 2007 (season 6, episode #10), a former Soviet Officer sold suitcase nuke bombs to Muslims to attack the US. He said “We will finally do what we always wanted (nuke the US), but the Arabs will take the blame”.
This is based on a real statement according to JR Nyquist’s well known article – Is Al Qaeda a Kremlin Proxy?
Related to this, in 1998 I asked a former Russian intelligence official how Moscow might successfully pull off a surprise nuclear attack against the United States without suffering a devastating retaliation. He replied without hesitation, saying: “If you ever hear that Arab terrorists have attacked an American city with nuclear weapons don’t believe it.” The attack, he said, would be from Russia.
