Well, the poisoning of former KGB/FSB official Alexander Litvinenko should serve as a wake up call to Americans, especially when the surrounding facts are looked at.
The first question: What does Alexander Litvinenko have to do with the possibility of a nuclear weapon being detonated on American soil?
Nothing directly. Indirectly? Far too much. After all, the former KGB agent once voiced the following enlightening comments:
"When Putin spoke on the anniversary of the founding of the All-Russian Extraordinary Commission (CheKa, 1917) on December twenty, he began his address to his colleagues with a reference to the way former KGB personnel had pretended to be politicians, infiltrated the leadership of the country, and seized power."
Said another way, it seems that Litvinenko was alluding to the idea that the KGB had become a powerful entity unto itself. And corruption in Russia (former Soviet Union) is something that the rest of the world, United States included, should be very concerned about.
Here's what you need to know though about al-Zawahiri ... he has a rich past with ties to the KGB.

This of course makes him an enemy of America and a Muslim terrorist.
Thus, it seems that we have reports from someone in the know that the KGB (currently the FSB) is corrupt.
However, the fact that this corrupt unit has ties to Ayman al-Zawahiri is perhaps a little too much to bare, considering that Osama Bin Laden was reported to be plotting nuclear attacks on U.S. cities. Just because Bin Laden is gone doesn't mean these plots to attack America with nukes have gone away.
Immediately makes you wonder about those friends of his, doesn't it?
In accordance with this, British officials told ABC News that Litvinenko's "murder was a state sponsored assassination orchestrated by the Russian security services." They came to this conclusion based on "forensic evidence and intelligence reports. . ."
Then, of course, there's the fact that Russian businessman Andrei Lugovoi has now been charged with the murder.
A businessman? Well, that doesn't support the whole conspiracy theory on Russian corruption, does it?
It does if the businessman was affiliated with the KGB until 1996 (ninth department of the KGB - a bodyguard unit). Though he denies the murder and having ever been in the FSB, a former employer named Badri Patarkatsishvili had the following to say.
"There is no such thing as a former KGB agent."
Does that apply to Ayman al-Zawahiri?
After all, beyond the fact that the Russians have nuclear weapons, the scientists to teach Iran how to make their own, and the manpower to help in numerous ways, there's also another thing to be concerned about.
Simply put, those damned dead drop sites.
Without going into too much detail (read the article on dirty bombs and nuclear suitcase bombs at SecretsofSurvival.com for much, much more) there is a plethora of evidence supporting that during the Cold War, Soviet spies brought suitcase nuclear weapons into the United States and hid them. That's right, they hid them. Now think about it: Who would know where these might be?
Former KGB agents (again, some say that there is no such thing as former KGB agents). Guys like al-Zawahiri? Maybe, but only if he reached elite levels in the organization. However, even if he didn't, he may have ties to those that do. The terrible possibilities are endless.
First, close the Mexican border entirely. Radical Islamists can cross that border also and some have been caught. You can bet a lot more have gotten across in recent years.
Second, better shut down Canada's border also. Third, search all cargo ships entering U.S. ports and that includes every container ... actually, these searches need to take place several miles off shore, before a cargo ship ever comes near our ports.
Then there's those damn satellites and international flights high above us every day and every evening...
With all that said, you probably realize the logistics of these kinds of steps are just not likely to happen. Are we going to ground all international flights for searches before they leave their departing nations? Are we going to police foreign satellites as they streak around the earth 24-7? Are we going to stop cargo shops several miles off shore for extensive searches?
Otherwise the odds are against us. America just has too many enemies.
And with so many liberals attacking any mention of God, and Jesus, in the public forum, don't expect to see any nationwide repentance. There won't be any repenting coming from the White House.
All we can expect is the judgments of God. Better read your Bible if you want to make sense out of all this -- before it's too late.
