Anti-Gadhafi forces find possible radioactive material in Libya

A military site containing what appears to be radioactive material was uncovered Thursday by revolutionary forces near the southern Libyan city of Sabha. The discovery comes a day after anti-Gadhafi forces took over Sabha.

The site contains barrels and plastic bags of powder marked "radioactive." Their contents have not been confirmed as nuclear material.

This story is developing. We'll bring you the latest information as soon as we get it.

    look this is such BS. MI6 and the CIA were in Libya months before the "bombs of peace" This is planted. It's yet more fake propaganda. If you do your homework they have had our troops ready to put boots on the ground here for months. This is a cy op so the people won't object to another war. Be prepared they will stage another 9/11 false flag. I'm really getting tired of this crap.

    Just like wrestling, right, Ruffie?

    I was in DC a while is beautiful! I had a blast there, and of course, saw all the usual things, but the architecture of some of the buildings, and the old colonial homes just blew me away!
    I would love to get back there one day.

    Ugh, so-o-o-o scary... I'm peeing in my pants. That evil Halloween personage Qadhafi certainly intended to blow this stuff on the Times Square, and to poison with it our beloved President.

    Oh, so we finally found Saddam's WMD that satellite photos indicated went to Syria in a convoy of trucks. A little free market trading of WMD going on behind the UN's back I guess. But, dummy me, I thought WMD were a right-wing fantasy.

      Isn't that part of the Book of Mormon? the secret WMDs made their way across the desert to Syria, then they took a ship to America, past the pillars of Hercules and dropped some off in Libya, hidden in secret golden barrels of powder, thus sayth the angel maroni!
