WHY BLAME TERRORISTS...

when the US government itself is so accomplished at dissemanating WMDs?

The US Dept. of Energy has spread 35,000 pounds of highly enriched uranium fuel around the world since the 1950s, the WSJ reports:

"Starting with the "Atoms for Peace Program" in the 1950s, the U.S. began leasing the uranium fuel, requiring nations to return it. After 1964, the U.S. began to sell the fuel."

Is the world getting more dangerous, or are we just getting dumber? Here's what the DOE Inspector General had to say on the matter.

Oh, and you have to love the creativity of government bureaucrats. This is the snappy name they chose for the program for recovering the errant nukes: Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel Acceptance Program. That's really catchy...and fun to say.
