Free Copy of “Last Best Chance”

Recommended by Warren Buffett, Last Best Chance is a movie produced with “support from the Nuclear Threat Initiative, with additional funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation” and is available for free from the NTI. Buffett called it a fictional but not fanciful” scenario and the 9/11 Commission Chair and Vice Chair called it “A wake-up call for America and the world.” I look forward to it and for those who are very eager, here’s the trailer [3].

From the LastBestChance website:

Last Best Chance is a docudrama that shows the threat posed by vulnerable nuclear weapons and materials around the world and underscores what the stakes are.

In the movie, al Qaeda operatives organize three separate operations aimed at getting nuclear weapons. The material is then fabricated into three crude nuclear weapons by small groups of trained terrorists, who have recruited bomb-making experts to help them manufacture their weapons.

Governments around the world discover clues to the plot, but are unable to uncover the scheme before the weapons are en route to their destinations. The film clearly demonstrates that the hardest job for terrorists is gaining control of a nuclear weapon or material. Because the governments had failed to take sufficient action to secure or destroy the nuclear weapons material, they are helpless to prevent an attack.
