2 teams of US investigators were able to smuggle small amounts of radioactive material across the northern and southern borders using fake documents. There was enough material to make workable "dirty bombs".

This revelation clearly shows that the US has far to go in order to prevent further terrorist attacks within the borders.


Two teams of government investigators using fake documents were able to enter the United States with enough radioactive sources to make two dirty bombs, according to a federal report made available Monday.

The investigators purchased a "small quantity" of radioactive materials from a commercial source while posing as employees of a fictitious company and brought the materials into the United States through checkpoints on the northern and southern borders, according to a Government Accountability Office report prepared for Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations Chairman Norm Coleman, a Minnesota Republican.


Will this open up the eyes of the Bush administration and make them realize that there is much still to be done? Too much being spent fighting the war on terror elsewhere instead of spending more money securing the borders?
