    Did they ever locate the missing nukes in Russia?

    Al-Qaeda Nukes Dispersed Across U.S., Letters Assert
    The FBI is looking for the mailer of 25 letters claiming that al-Qaeda has dispersed 160 remote-controlled nuclear weapons at secret locations around the United States, CBS News reported on Tuesday (see GSN, March 22).

    "They alarmed a lot of people,” FBI Special Agent Andre Zavala said of the Chicago-postmarked letters, in which the writer purports to be al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

    “The al-Qaeda organization has planted 160 nuclear bombs throughout the U.S. in schools, stadiums, churches, stores, financial institutions and government buildings,” says one of the letters, received in recent days by lawyer Tracy Rizzo. It adds, “This is a suicide mission for us.”

    “It was clear the writer wanted to scare me,” said Rizzo, one of eight people around Chicago to notify the FBI of the communications. “Yes, it frightened me.”

    Authorities in California, Florida, Oregon and Texas reported similar mailings.

    “There are items in the letter that lead us to believe it is a hoax,” Zavala said. “There are several demands documented that aren’t fully coherent.”

    He added: "The FBI investigates every element. We can't take that chance."

    The author could be sentenced to between five and 10 years in prison for every mailing (CBS News, March 29).
