    He announced it to all the world, including the exact timing. Anybody surprised would not have been listening. And if he would have gotten shot heads would have rolled. The guy is a two-time hero, once for delivering his message (Campaign Finance Reform) and twice for showing Washington how the terrorists could get that nuke they are building/buying/dreaming right were it hurts – detectors or not…

    He told the Secret Service when and what he was going to do.
    They didn’t bother to put it on their calendar.

    Differing reports about who informed Homeland Security, and when. Googled Gyrocopter Secret Service and a friend had called HS even as Hughes was taking off. They tracked him and would have shot him down if he had deviated from his path.
    .
    I’m sure more details will come out.

    Not entirely incorrect. But, remember, if such terrorists had wanted to, they have easily enough money to have puchased suitcase types of nukes, and set one off in Washington DC. long before this. But, it has not happened yet, and quite probably will never happen, as nuclear signatures, and a whole lot of international forensics would soon find out just who it was that did such a horrible thing. And then, every man, woman, and even child of such a group would be hunted down (regardless of just who was trying ot protect them) and eliminated from the face ot the Earth


    Even extremist terrorist groups are easily intelligent enough to see that such an act would not, under any circumstances, further their causes.


    It is simply another form of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD for short) that kept mankind from destroying itself all during the Cold War!!

    The effectiveness of a suicide bomber is based on the fact he has nothing to lose, and as a consequence, stopping him as a “lone wolf” is almost impossible to defend against with any “bodyguard” or “anti-terrorist” scenario. Especially true for “security” folks if the likelyhood of collateral damage from a response might exceed the damage the individual can accomplish.


    Citing someone who WAS being a threat when using her vehicle as a weapon is not the same as someone who apparently had already defined their mission as non-violent, and from reports about intelligence gathering, known to be following his non-violent plan. Deviation from the plan might well have brought a more violent response.

    If terrorists get a nuke, they’ll most probably get it from the Taliban, which will get it from Pakistan’s armory. Pakistan is holding the world to nuclear blackmail, because the world can’t afford to have 100 nuclear warheads on delivery systems ready to go in the hands of people who are allied with terrorists the world over. So the Pakistan government can do whatever it pleases, act as crazy or as accommodating as they choose, it doesn’t matter, because at the end of the day, they’ll still have all the support they need to keep the Taliban out.
    Eventually, terrorists will get a nuke. Buying one from North Korea would be very possible if conditions are right – they’d just rather put their money in the ISIS column for now. Whether they’d rather use it for blackmail (press us and we’ll set this off in your cities) or rather just use it is a question only time will answer. But it will happen.

    The corporate media is up to their usual standards of fact non-checking. The aircraft in question is an autogiro. To the degree girocopter is even a word, it includes both helicopters and autogiros.
