Im more concerned about this that 8kg`s of missing chinese uranium to be honest - 2 out of 3 sites inspected could not find stockpiled items or special nuclear material.

how many more sites cannot find items supposed to on the inventory...


the officials blame `paperwork` and the standards used for the inspection rather than the small detail that plutonium could actually be missing.

Given all the recent events - i personally feel this is VERY important - and there seems to be alot of accountability issues relating to US nuclear material.
