Bachmann Can't Be Right, Can She?Submitted by jfarbe1 on Wed, 11/23/2011 - 13:23
For the first time this entire election cycle, I actually felt like this was a pretty fair debate, giving adequate time to every candidate. One thing that I've been thinking about alot since then is a comment Michelle Bachmann made that no one seems to be talking about.
She said something like "Pakistan hitting New York or Washington DC with a Nuclear Bomb is a very real threat"
Now, I don't believe anything that Bachmann says because she has lied and been mistaken too many times to count but I am curious about if anyone knows if this is a possibility based on real fact? How far can a nuclear bomb actually be launched? Would it be possible to reach one of our cities from Pakistan. Does it have to be dropped from a plane and is it actually possible for one to be hijacked by terrorists and set off or is this all complete fear-mongering like I imagine?
