According to NTI: The Global Security Newswire:
Al-Qaida documents found in Afghanistan in 2007 revealed that "greater advances" had been made in bioterrorism than was previously realized. An Indian national security adviser told American security personnel in June 2008 that terrorists "have the technical competence to manufacture an explosive device beyond a mere dirty bomb".
President Barack Obama declared nuclear terrorism "the single biggest threat" with the potential to cause "extraordinary loss of life".
"If not now, Pakistan will soon have the fifth largest nuclear arsenal in the world, surpassing the United Kingdom," said Bruce Riedel, a former CIA officer and the author of "Deadly Embrace: Pakistan, America, and the Future of Global Jihad."
GTI's Joint Operations Center (JOC) is a decommissioned Nuclear Fuels Reprocessing Plant that has been converted to a tactical training center. The JOC is located in South Carolina and is the only training site of its kind in North America. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has warned that we need to be ready for a nuclear presence from the Middle East.
GTI's Joint Operations Center can offer a one of a kind training facility to run real world scenarios and advance our troops preparedness should we need to take military action against a foreign nuclear threat.
