As a new and dire warning appeared from Al Qaeda, theCentral Intelligence Agency has been thrown into what formersenior CIA officials are describing as ?turmoil? by thefriction between newly appointed CIA Director Porter Gossand career CIA personnel, especially key senior officers.
Meanwhile, a smallArabic-language website is reported to have posted what isbelieved to be a message from Al Qaeda to the effect thatthe organization possesses at least one nuclear weapon andis poised to detonate it in the center of the US. The reportcomes from the respected Italian news organization laReppublica. It has been ignored by US media.
Unfortunately, there is no CIA analysis of the website or ofwhether or not its contents represent a real threat.
