Based on course readings from this week, assess the threat of a nuclearattack; analyze the means by which terrorists could acquire nuclear weapons ornuclear material; and hypothesize if a radiological (“dirty bomb”) or nuclearattack would be more likely to be facilitated by a terrorist organization.
