Shortly after 9/11, Al Qaeda had warned to set off a “nuclear hellstorm” if Osama bin Laden is ever captured or killed, according to U.S. government documents that were leaked just last month by Wikileaks.
Wikileaks' files show that al Qaeda's senior leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was detained and interrogated, had spilled the beans that the terrorist group had, indeed, hidden a nuclear bomb in Europe and that it would be detonated if Osama bin Laden is captured or killed.
The secret files show the interrogation details of more than 750 Guantanamo Bay detainees. Another revelation from the files was that Al-Qaeda planned chemical and biological attacks in London and also had a sketch on how to put cyanide in air-conditioning units of some public offices in the US.
But legal experts doubt the credibility of these Guantanamo confessions, as the advanced interrogation methods used, famously including torture, are likely to make the subjects say anything in order to stop being tortured. Among the confessions are also some of the few existing examples of evidence that al-Qaeda members were actually involved in planning the attacks of 9/11.
Interestingly, the FBI officially confirmed that there is no hard evidence connecting Osama bin Laden to the 9/11 attacks. The FBI never put up formal charges against bin Laden - which exist for several other of the involved terrorists. On the other hand, bin Laden was already indicted for other crimes, making it less urgent to indict him for 9/11 again.

Another explanation for the lack of criminal charges was brought forward by then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who said that the 911 was an act of war and not a law enforcement matter. But this mere redefining of the attack doesn't explain why no evidence would be needed to proof who was behind the attacks, and how it was accomplished. Just for comparison, the airplanes that attacked Pearl Harbor were clearly Japanese, and they didn't come from nowhere, but were launched from aircraft carriers within range.
The story of some 20 year olds who had a few hours of flight lessons in little Cessna's, and then successfully hijacked not one, but three large passenger jets and piloted all of them precisely in their targets sounds like a wild conspiracy theory. Experienced pilots say it is impossible, but what is even more strange is that two crashed airplanes should have caused a total of 3 skyscrapers to collapse.
The connection between bin Laden and the 9/11 attacks was made by the Bush-Cheney administration, at the morning of the attacks, before the first tower even collapsed. Nearly ten years later, after intensive investigation, a government commission, two wars and the interrogation under torture of some 750 people detained in Guantanamo Bay without charges, no hard evidence could be found that would confirm the initial allegation.
None the less, the same unfounded 11 am allegation of the Bush administration is repeated by countless people, in media and government, even today and possibly ad infinitum.
And now there is apparently a nuclear bomb hidden in Europe, ready to blow up any moment now! Its confirmed by the godlike al-Qaeda terrorists, and the advise should be: Duck and cover!
