America has come out and revealed it has removed over 1.7 metric tons of nuclear radioactive material from Iraq secretly over the last month. Along with 1.77 tonnes of enriched uranium, 1000 "highly radioactive sources" were removed.
 



news.bbc.co.uk
The material was taken from a former nuclear research facility on 23 June, after being packaged by 20 experts from the US Energy Department's secret laboratories.

It was flown out of the country aboard a military plane in a joint operation with the Department of Defense, and is being stored temporarily at a DOD facility.

The United Nations nuclear watchdog - the International Atomic Energy Agency - and Iraqi officials were informed a. of the operation, which happened a. of the 28 June handover of sovereignty.

Interesting, very interesting, considering this is the day after Tony Blair admits he may never find WMDs.
1.77 TONNES of uranium.. that's ALOT of Uranium.. Heck, America will probably throw it straight back into their own weapons programmes...
Interesting to see the 'highly radioactive sources' is an ambigious thing, meaning that PERHAPS Iraq had more advanced nuclear items than America did, or have created something new that America didnt understand?

Updates later.


Update 1; Members of the Abovetopsecret.com board have linked this and an incident where Coalition trucks were stopped carrying IN nuclear radioactive materials to Iraq, on the Kuwait boarder. The source for that is Here

Speculation is already adrift that this may be another thing to boost Bush's standings in the upcoming elections, along with the rumoured capturing of Osama Bin Laden being hidden until a time nearer the elections, and potentially, the be.ings as a CIA operation to rally support for the War in Iraq and Bush's election...

They're probably keeping it Hush-hush so they can box it up, ship it back over to America and then fire back in the same direction!

Wasn't there a post a couple weeks ago about eye witness accounts of trucks driving this waste INTO the country?

I dont know for certain, but I remember something like this....
Perhaps we should compile a thread?

Here's the thread relating to the carrying IN of nuclear waste

no, what was found is the stuff used for xrays and sterilization and other uses, not nuclear weapons, no conspiracy here.

Man something is *fishy* here! Why would the US want to keep this sort of thing quiet?! I would have figured information like this would have been plastered all over fox news and the like....

this news would be plastered over every single news outlet, not just fox...


perhaps there is no conspiracy... maybe the press here in America just hasn't picked it up yet, or there is some legit reason the story has not been officialy released yet.

Maybe they are just retrieving whats theirs?

timesofindia.indiatimes.com...

US gave uranium to 43 nations - The Times of India

... WASHINGTON: The US has given weapons-grade uranium to 43 countries including Pakistan
since the 1950s under the Atoms for Peace programme and is making little ...

And yeah, I've also seen reports a few weeks back of the US sneaking stuff into Iraq :@

They didnt keep it quiet. Infact, if you read the article, they contacted the IAEA before moving the stuff.




The United Nations nuclear watchdog - the International Atomic Energy Agency - and Iraqi officials were informed a. of the operation, which happened a. of the 28 June handover of sovereignty.

It is probably the left over material from the nuke plants (supposedly power related).

If this was in fact WMD related Cheney would have wet himself on TV this morning telling us all about it.

Damn, it took a long time before they found something. I wonder if they really found something, or if they made up the whole story just to boost the popularity of the Bush administration before the election.

I wonder when is Bin Laden gonna pop out of his surprise box, like the USA's Jack-in-the-box muppet?



Surprise! They shouldn't wait too close to the elections, or else the people are ought to be really suspicious. That is, if they are not totally blind.

I think it is to get saddam, people want him let go. This makes the US's case stronger. And the election.

The trucks stopped at the Kuwaiti border were supposedly carrying radioactive waste materials... such as x-ray and radiation residuals... as I recall from a story I read on the subject.

I think a much more realistic scenario is that the US and Brits have kept this hush-hush because there is more and they would prefer to remove it all from the country so that the terrorists don't get their hands on it.

Keep in mind, radioactive material, such as enriched Uranium, all have unique markers in them. Remember the movie "The Sum of All Fears"? Although the movie is fiction, there was alot of truth in the methods used to trace the uranium used in the bomb. I'm sure we'll be looking at who provided the uranium to Saddam and going after that country as well. This is not something to publicize until all of the research is done or you alert potential thieves and the perpetrator.

There is a rather good posibility that going after the suplyer, the US needs to go after himself.

Read the article I posted previously and others on the subject of the program.

The US may have given small quantities of weapons grade uranium to 43 countries, however, no country ever received 1.7 tons of material. It is most likely weaponized yellow-cake from somewhere in Africa... if in fact does exist.

Can anyone verify the trucks bringing in 'nuclear materials' were using non-weapons nuclear materials for certain? we need to get onto this, it could be a VERY big deal...

Hi, all...new member, btw.

I was in Iraq all of last year and I was personally present during the inspection of several sites that contained various items that could be considered to be "highly radioactive sources" and other related matierials, as well as, materials related to chemical warfare. It seemed at the time that the military command wasn't all that interested in what we had discovered. I have no idea why this was. One would think that with all the WMD frenzy that teams of people would swoop down on the site in seconds. I had several discussions with other people that were present during the inspections about this subject and all that we could decide was that there must be some plan for the release of the findings at some point in the future. Perhaps, the plan is to gather all of the evidence and release one huge report at one time. That's total speculation on my part, of course.
