Security and DOE aid Terrorists in assembly of Dirty Bombs.
Breathe deep and Sigh
By David Phillips

Homeland Security and the Department
of Energy, were out in force New Years eve, looking for Dirty Bombs using scientists in civilian clothes carrying sophisticated
electronic devices, designed to detect radiation.
Four major cities, Los Angeles, Las
Vegas, Baltimore, and New York city, were all under high alert for fear that terrorists were going to place a dirty bomb in
one or more of these cities.
While no known incidents occurred, there
is still a major concern that a dirty bomb, still might be used sometime hear in the United States.
my opinion they have good reasons to still be terrified.
because in my local newspaper in Las Vegas, NV, the Review Journal, on Tuesday January 6, 2004, there was an article about
Plutonium Tainted waste being transported from the Nevada test site, to the depository in Carlsbad, NM.
The story gave the route that the Plutonium
waste was going to take. Not only that, they provided a map. Thats right a map.
But you say to yourself, its OK there
will be plenty of security, terrorists would never try to hijack something that well guarded.
So you take a deep breath, a sigh and
you feel a little better. Then you continue to read the story and read that the shipments wont have any Police escort, and
will only be monitored by a Satellite GPS system.
So you take another deep breath, and
another sigh, but this time youre not feeling any better.
While Im not saying that the Homeland
Security, or the Department of Energy should be aloud to infringe on our First Amendment rights, they should at least refrain
from dispelling sensitive information.
I just took another breath and a sigh,
no, still not feeling any better.
