Do It Yourself WMD

Sort of puts the whole “where are the WMD?” in perspective. The answer appears to be wherever you can gather a bunch of chemicals and some intelligent terrorist.

AMMAN, Jordan (CNN) – Jordanian authorities said Monday they have broken up an alleged al Qaeda plot that would have unleashed a deadly cloud of chemicals in the heart of Jordan’s capital, Amman.

Among the alleged targets were the U.S. Embassy, the Jordanian prime minister’s office and the headquarters of Jordanian intelligence.

The plot would have been more deadly than anything al Qaeda has done before, including the September 11 attacks, according to the Jordanian government.

Jordanian authorities said the attack would have mixed a combination of 71 lethal chemicals, which they said has never been done before, including blistering agents to cause third-degree burns, nerve gas and choking agents.

The Jordanian intelligence buildings are within a mile of a large medical center, a shopping mall and a residential area.

“And there is no one combination of antidote to treat nerve agent, choking agent and blistering agent,” the scientist said.Funny how NewsMax had this story over a week ago.
