ISRAELI EMBASSY IN NYC A RADIATION HOT SPOT
by x Saturday, Oct. 14, 2006 at 5:05 PM
WASHINGTON -- Anti-terrorism officials conducted a helicopter survey of
New York City's radiation sources in preparation for a so-called "dirty
bomb" attack - and discovered a Staten Island park with dangerously high
levels of radium, a new report found.
One alleged radiation hot spot on Manhattan's east side has the
potential for becoming a political hot spot: A strong radiation spike
from the area of the Israeli Embassy. Officials would not comment on why
they thought that particular area allegedly showed such a stunning peak
Fossella said the results of the survey, conducted by the federal Department of Energy for the NYPD, had been withheld at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security. [...]
[The EPA's director of environmental planning, Walter Mugdan] added that after the aerial survey found the contaminated spot, an ensuing ground survey identified about 10 more spots within 150 feet. [...]
The other spots, he added, are even weaker.
