ISIS will 'Inevitably' Gain and Use Weapons of Mass Destruction

By The Clarion Project

It is inevitable the Islamic State will acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, according to the former head of the British Army’s nuclear team.

Dr. Hamish de Bretton-Gordon was formerly commander of Britain’s Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) regiment. He told the Global Resilience Conference in London it is “only a matter of time” before ISIS launches an attack on a major city with weapons of mass destruction.

“ISIS have made it known they want to acquire weapons of mass destruction,” he said. “They run a sophisticated and successful psychological warfare campaign and are now basing that on CBRN weaponry – the ultimate weapon in the terrorist arsenal.”

According to Bretton-Gordon, the Islamic State already possesses chemical weapons such as mustard gas. They also have limited amounts of unenriched uranium.

“The uranium they have is not weaponized,” Bretton-Gordon said, “but we know ISIS have recruited scientists to develop chemical and nuclear weapons.”
