We did it, we're glad we did it, and we don't expect you to be good sports about it!

The killing of Osama bin Laden has raised new concerns over an earlier al-Qaida threat to detonate a nuclear weapon in Europe if the terrorist leader was killed or captured.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, told Guantanamo Bay interrogators that al-Qaida would unleash a “nuclear hellstorm,” according to Britain’s Daily Telegraph.

“A senior al-Qaida commander claimed that the terrorist group has hidden a nuclear bomb somewhere in Europe which will be detonated if Osama bin Laden is ever caught or assassinated,” the newspaper reported.

The claim came to light in classified files released by the WikiLeaks website, according to AFP.

The files also disclosed that al-Qaida plotted a 9/11-style attack on London’s Heathrow airport that would crash a hijacked plane into one of the terminals.

There was also a plot to put cyanide into the air-conditioning units of public buildings in the United States.
