Tom Clancy Predicts Nuclear Attack

WUSA TV 9, the Washington DC Metro Area CBS affiliate, did an interview with author Tom Clancy.

The famed techno-thriller was consulted to determine what he considered to be the next terrorist threat.

In his estimation, he predicted Islamic radicals procuring the nuclear parts of Russian atomic buoys to be used as the components of a dirty bomb.

While overall the piece was informative and admitting that Clancy can be a bit gruff in interviews at times, the story is out of line in deriding Clancy for being a “right-winger” and for insinuating he deserves hate mail for conjecturing terrorist Muhammad Atta was a homosexual.
