"A Plague on Both Houses" fictionalizes the very real and growing threat of a WMD attack using bioweapons.
The Commission on the Prevention of WMD Proliferation and Terrorism published a report on December 2, 2008. View the report here.
Some quotes from the report:
"Nuclear, biological attack 'likely' within next five years"
"Pakistan is the weakest link in world security."
Without urgent action,
"it is more likely than not that a weapon of mass destruction will be used in a terrorist attack somewhere in the world by the end of 2013."
The bi-partisan commission has a website.
