The U.S. Is Unable To Account For 36k Pounds Of Weapons Grade Uranium And Plutonium


articles.bu sinessinsider.com

Under special nuclear cooperation agreements, the United States sent 38,580 pounds of enriched uranium and plutonium to more than two-dozen foreign agencies and is unable to account for 36,000 pounds of the material. The Government Accountability Office report says these 27 cooperation agreements, set up to facilitate cross border research, have no accountability and the U.S. has no way to enforce control.

Well this is cheery news. Don't worry, the The Government Accountability Office (lulz) is on the case. Oh yeah.

Then there is the question of why the US is giving away nuclear material under sketchy "cooperation agreements" in the first place. Twenty-seven of them.

Well, I'm sure some fancy new TSA scanners will protect America, right?

Oh wow, every day the federal government does something more and more outrageous!
They dare to call Iran a threat for possibly wanting to build a single nuclear weapon (to which they have no resources to execute), yet they build nuclear plants in Japan that can't withstand earthquakes, give 27 different entities plutonium and can't account for it?

"My laaaaaaaaaaaawd" he says ironically and *facepalms*

Sometimes, I feel this life is just a massive parody

Flag this immediately folks. This is really important, and potentially bad. Now if we get hit with a nuke they can basically blame anybody and WW3 starts. Leave it to the good ol' US to toss nukes around like they are hot potatoes. Dear god.

edit: I know its nuclear "material" but acquiring this, ready made, could potentially be one of the last steps to making a bomb. The refining process seems to be complete with this stuff so all you have to do is gather the 3-4 bomb engineers and make one with some of it.

Does anyone remember this one around the time of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics?
dprogram.net...


8.) Kinder Morgan, Dyno Nobel, Goldman Sachs, the CIA, RCMP and Missing Explosives?

Two tons of Ammonium Nitrate, (a fertilizer used in making powerful explosives) went missing from a shipment to a storage facility after leaving the packaging plant at Dyno Nobel. The company that owns the Ammonium Nitrate is one that was recently purchased for a whopping $22 billion by some of the world’s largest financial companies. The buyout is being led by co-founder and chairman Richard D. Kinder, a ex-Enron executive. The companies involved in the purchase are Goldman Sachs, AIG, The Carlye Group and Riverstone Holdings. If that doesn’t get you interested, I don’t know what will.

Not everyone can produce a nuke. That is the only safety.
You don't suppose they lost this stuff. It was stolen and sold.

This is probably all a part of the next false flag attack.

Cue the detonation of a nuclear device in an American city on the count of 3, 2, 1.....

Isn't this stuff ideal for those??

Why flag it if it happens it will be the end of the electronic age for a while anyways.

Has the US Gov't tried looking in the deserts of Iraq? I hear there some WMD there somewhere.

Funny they know exactly when people are a day behind with payments. They know exactly where all there assets are and they know every mistake another country makes practically.

But they do not know where 37K of plutonium went to, I would say unbeleivable but these things happen when priorites are not in order.

Disgraceful

Maybe someone will find it with the 2 trillion dollars they lost...

Or maybe it's with "Bin Laden's" body.

Yes, funny how that works huh? I have a sneaking suspicion that "they" know exactly where it's located.

A tough old man who made me grow up military style. If it wasn't to his specifications, you better hope he never found out.
It better be done right or he'll make you do it over until it is done right.

He would never let 36k slide on by. Like the White house. Heck, I can't get past .50 cents with him.

Actually. If this plutonium and uranium is enriched to weapons grade as it says in the title, it wouldn't be that hard and any country could make the bomb. It's usually the enriching process that not any country can do I believe and this stuff is all set to go for them.

Giving out weapons grade uranium is way lame of our government, I mean this is super irresponsible. What purpose would it serve other than giving them nukes basically? You don't need weapons grade for nuke energy.
