The Islamic State wrote in its online English language propaganda publication "Dabiq" that it could buy a nuclear weapon over the next year and smuggle it into the U.S. from Mexico.
In the story "The Perfect Storm" allegedly penned by British hostage John Cantlie it is claimed that ISIS will purchase the weapon in Pakistan. Cantlie says the weapon would be transported from Pakistan to Libya, Nigeria.
"Drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible," he adds. In Mexico, the smugglers are "mingling with another 12 million ´illegal" aliens in America" with a nuclear bomb in the trunk".
