NUCLEAR WASTE LEAK CONTAMINATES COUPLE DOZEN LOS ALAMOS WORKERS
"The Los Alamos National Laboratory does, in fact, use kitty litter in the storage of radioactive nuclear waste. The problem may be found in the
difference between organic and inorganic kitty litter. The 22 Los Alamos workers were contaminated after a radioactive waste storage barrel leaked.
Officials say a switch by Los Alamos from inorganic to organic kitty litter may have helped fuel the "heat event that popped the lid off the
"This switch may have caused the radiation of 22 Los Alamos workers and an indefinite shutdown of the nuclear waste dump. The Department of Energy
(formerly known as the Department of Defense) has shuttered indefinitely the government’s “only permanent repository" for nuclear waste left over
from decades of nuclear bomb building."
NOTE: The Department of Energy has NEVER been known as the Department of Defense! According to Wikipedia, the DoE was formed in 1977 from the
Federal Energy Administration (FEA).
"Officials have yet to pinpoint what caused a barrel of waste at Los Alamos to breach, but the contractor running the lab at the time of the "mishap"
has been pulled from the project and reassigned to focus on "core national security interests."
NOTE: What?! A contractor who didn't know the difference between organic and inorganic kitty litter is not being fired - just "reassigned to focus
on core national security interests?" What exactly would that be?
"Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz ordered the program be moved from the National Nuclear Security Administration to Office of Environmental Management.
And, as a result of the radiation leak, four of the facility's directors have been reassigned."
NOTE: So the Los Alamos Nuclear Storage is being "moved" from under National Nuclear Security Administration supervision - to the Office of
Environmental Management? Why?
I'm not suggesting another conspiracy - not yet, anyway. This may just be business-as-usual for stumble/bumble Team Obama. But I DO look forward to
reading later and more explanatory articles on this. Written by someone who knows that the DoE has NEVER been under the Pentagon ....
