Armed guard found asleep at nuke plant

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - A federal inspector found an armed guard asleep at a gate inside the Indian Point nuclear power plants but officials said Monday there was no security breach.

The inspector spent two minutes trying to rouse the unnamed guard Sunday afternoon before the guard "stood up and opened his eyes," said Neil Sheehan, spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The five-year veteran was alone on the second of three security rings around the two plants in Buchanan, about 35 miles north of New York City, Sheehan said.

He said other security measures at the gate remained in operation during the guard's nap and tapes showed there was no breach, "but that doesn't make it any less serious."

I think this is terrible, i thought those power plants were supposed to be high security. I wonder if this may have sparked an interest for the terroritst to get the fuel they need here in America rather than shipping in some other way. regardless i think this isn't acceptable and i hope they learn from it

Sounds like the Nuclear power plant is going to be just fine with Barney Fife on the case.
