Not only are the drones very easy to be purchased from different websites including Amazon or eBay but authorities already have evidence of the terrorists trying to use them. Such an attack could kill thousands of people and even leave an entire city uninhabitable for years to come. US President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande and other world leaders discussed a response to such an attack delivered by drones. Many summits are about dealing with things that have already gone wrong and the world is trying to put right. However, as Cameron also noted, this summit was about something the world is trying to prevent from happening.
In the analyzed scenario, jihadists stole enough nuclear material from a health facility. As they smuggled the material into Britain and other Western countries they were sure to attack soon. Intelligence agencies managed to detected some of it but other consignments got through.
The toxic material was purchased by terrorists on the highly encrypted ‘dark web’ after being stolen from the health site. The purpose of this “war game” was also to figure out how to best respond to an attack in which terrorists target separate sites at the same time.
