Dirty Lies…

This is not what I go to Popbitch for, but it was there in the middle of their briefing otherwise stuffed to the gills with prurient details about gay pop stars.

>> Dirty Lies << Radiation bombs are a government fantasy Last week?s BBC drama about a dirty bomb in London has helped keep everyone terrified about terrorism. But a forthcoming documentary shows that dirty bombs are actually a fantasy. The Americans should know: the CIA tried for years to make one, before realising that blowing up radioactive material won't hurt anyone. Radioactive dust disperses so quickly you'd need to be exposed to it for about a year before any real damage occurred. The documentary, The Power Of Nightmares, shows how politicians are using fake stories like the dirty bomb to keep people scared, and themselves in power. It also demonstrates that the claim that Al-Qaeda is a global, hidden, terror network is also a myth. So what channel is this BBC-debunking documentary showing on? Er, BBC2. The Power Of Nightmares. BBC2, 20th October, 9pm. Well whatever, I saw dirty bomb and it was thoroughly unconvincing. Since when have bombs been clean things anyway? It took them years to clean up the mess that was the Bull Ring.
