Good article on the same subject here: www.wired.com...

Good find though, thanks.

"And there’s just one other problem. Subtracting all the nuke material that’s been accounted for and secured still leaves 2,700 kg — nearly three tons — outstanding. And that’s enough material to make dozens of nuclear weapons."

It's total hypocrisy for the US to be endlessly threatening Iran and North Korea when evidence like this clearly shows that the US is the biggest threat to its own safety when it comes to nuclear weapons issues.

The potential here is far worse than even the missing nukes from Minot AFB back in '07 which, as far as I know, are still unaccounted for.
This is the kind of things people should lose jobs over if not go to jail for.
If our intelligence agencies need something important to do this is it.
God help us all.

Well folks, you really wonder where did it go?
Israel was created in 1947, in 1948 they already started nuclear research, french builded for them secret nuclear reactor and processing plant. In '50s!
Now Israel posses around 300 nukes (8mln citizens country), entire program is secret, they never even openly admitted having those nukes. Along with NK, Pakistan and India, Israel is not recognized as a Nuclear Weapons State by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Take a look at that people:
Nuclear history of Israel
A little example:
The CIA believed that Israel's first bombs may have been made with highly enriched uranium stolen in the mid-1960s from the US Navy nuclear fuel plant operated by the Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation, where sloppy material accounting would have masked the theft.

We talking about thermonuclear technology here folks, along with delivery system either with Jericho missiles or good old F15 and F16 for closer range.

Now, here comes the best part, bit OT though. They also operate nuclear submarines, two of which were bought from Thyssen-Krupp Corporation
Before merger, Krupp during WWII had ammo factory near Auschwitz, using jews as a slave-labor. That was common practice in Krupp factories all over germany, extermination through labor. After WWII executives were charged and convicted for war-crimes. But on January 31, 1951, John J. McCloy, High Commissioner of the American zone of occupation, issued an amnesty to the Krupp defendants.
Company itself was dismantled between soviets and allies according to Allied High Commission Law 27, in 1950, mandating the decartelization of German industry.
Same fate happened to Thyssen AG. But obviously not for long. Merger between those two, happened in 1999.

Irony would be an understatement.

And this will be blamed on Bush in 3. . . 2. . .

Seriously?

Why aren't heads rolling?

You know what's even more funny than all your comments? The fact that all you guys really think that they can't account for the missing plutonium...

You actually believe that they lose plutonium like coins on the street...


They are fooling all of you. All they want is your fear.

The USA was unable to account for a few pounds of anthrax but found it agains just after 9/11 but the media fought we would all forget about it just because they stopped talking about it.

Don't know what went wrong with that plan but we are well over due a false flag attack and if that does not turn peoples attention away from the zionist banksters then exspect TPTB to use the race cards and start some false flag race riots.

Bankers stop at nothing but they will stop at the end of a rope according to the laws of physics.

I don't believe in the Reptilian Overlords that have been mentioned around here.

But stuff like this makes me wonder if human beings are actually in charge at the top levels where these decisions are made.

Plutonium???? If enough (1 lb can kill 2 million if efficiently spread) gets scattered in the wind, that's not good for any earthly life form, rich or poor, human or animal.

Who except for madmen or aliens would do such a thing as to pass the stuff around like foreign aid?

In Tom Clancy's book "The Sum of All Fears" he suggests that the US covertly gave Israel nuclear material.

What is also interesting in this book, is that when the false flag detonation occurs, nuclear analysts identified exactly which US nuclear reactor the material came from based on isotope ratios. Since Clancy is usually accurate about the technical details, I believe this is true. This means that even if the US, or anybody else, was attacked, they could at least determine the original source of the nuclear material.

Still, this is very disturbing. I hope they are asking the right people what happened, even if we are never told.

After reading the report, you can't tell how much, if any, was weapons grade HEU. It looks like the program that ran for the last 15 years was sending material abroad to help scientists with nuclear reactors and other experiments.

I would "Hope" the US wouldn't be stupid enough to send weapons grade HEU to other countries. Especially since the only thing weapons grade HEU is used for is nuclear weapons. You don't need weapons grade uranium to run a nuclear reactor.

Honestly how do we stop them? The american Government? my countries leaders? We have more sheeple then people who can see through their tyranny. This is probably the most extreme attack on america and the world, sending out this nuke capable base is calling for a world war. Why cant they realize to start such a extreme event will literally destroy the earth, not just humans, it would destroy deep into the earths crust. They may have their hiden under ground shelters, eventually they will have to come up to find nothing available for their greedy selfish attempts of having everything. Also even if earth would be capable of being rebuilt, who the hell is going to do the labor work for them. Picture it, they the rich elite greedys selfish bstrurds are standing around with the capablity to re build but one error in their devilish plans, no commoners to do the work...lol as they slowly die their reality will be horrific. hmmm at least if nuclear war does happen most people will be eliminated immediately, we wont suffer like they will. ( yes some will survive and siffer before death).
Really good Thread thanks

We probably sold it to Mexican drug runners.

Yeah probably, and where do the Cartels get most of their heroin? One hint "Afghanistan".

Good call. It is probably enriched to 20% required for research purposes. The "unable to account for" part is probably misleading too. Under the agreements, the material once handed over to the agencies in other countries, cannot be tracked by the US and hence cannot be accounted for by the US, only by the countries receiving it.

Project Sapphire was a successful 1994 covert operation of the United States government to remove 1,278 pounds (581 kilos) of weapons-grade enriched uranium for Alfa class submarines (enough to build over 1,000 nuclear weapons) from a warehouse at the Ulba Metallurgical Plant outside Ust-Kamenogorsk in the former Soviet republic of far eastern Kazakhstan, with the assistance of that country's government, in order to prevent nuclear proliferation.

Another 581 kg to add to the list I have been trying to find information on where this material is now stored

but it doesn't appear to be anywhere!

I can see it now...

Operation: "Fast & Furious!" - Obama Administration deliberately gave weapons to Mexican terrorists.

Operation: "Holy Crap!" - Obama Administration deliberately gave weapons grade uranium and plutonium to middle-east terrorists.

Operation: "Where is God?! - Obama Administration deliberately gave Al Sharpton the nuclear codes.

Operation: "Election 2012" - Obama blames the Tea Party and Bush for his acts of treason.
