FEMA, DHS, NRC show how prepared they are to stop Nukes

Condi Rice made it clear: one of the important justifications for going to war with Iraq, even though they didn't attack us, was they might have nukes. Unfortunately now that she and Bush and all the criminals are in charge of our homeland security, the terrorists can come to the US and get their hands on highly-enriched, bomb-grade nuclear materials -- right out of our unguarded reactors!

Gaping Lapses in Security at Nuclear Reactors

A four-month ABC News investigation found gaping security holes at many of the little-known nuclear research reactors operating on 25 college campuses across the country. Among the findings: unmanned guard booths, a guard who appeared to be asleep, unlocked building doors and, in a number of cases, guided tours that provided easy access to control rooms and reactor pools that hold radioactive fuel.

ABC News found none of the college reactors had metal detectors, and only two appear to have armed guards. Many of the schools permit vehicles in close proximity to the reactor buildings without inspection for explosives.

Condoleezza Rice on the importance of going to war over Nukes

"We know that he has the infrastructure, nuclear scientists to make a nuclear weapon," she told me. "And we know that when the inspectors assessed this after the Gulf War, he was far, far closer to a crude nuclear device than anybody thought -- maybe six months from a crude nuclear device."

Dr. Rice then said something that was ominous and made headlines around the world.

"The problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons. But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud."
