WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In July 2012, three aging anti-nuclear activists, including an 82-year-old nun, cut through fences surrounding the “Fort Knox” of uranium storage, and U.S. lawmakers want to know how that was possible. The facility is a major storage center for highly enriched uranium, a key component of nuclear bombs. The security breach at what was supposed to be one of the most secure facilities in the United States has raised new questions about a plan to overhaul oversight of nuclear laboratories and weapons plants. An internal Energy Department watchdog found guards ignored motion sensors because they are routinely triggered by wildlife, and a security camera that should have shown the break-in had been broken for about six months.
Ummm motion sensors that get tripped up every 2 seconds by squirrels and a broken camera? Is that for real? There’s like a half-assed half-broken Brinks system guarding our nuclear bombs. Some 82 year old bitch with a pair of pliers just hopped a fence and played hot potato with some enriched uranium. Christ. So pumped for Pakistan and Iran and shit to read this news blurb. All those motherfuckers trembling in fear over there picturing us with a shit ton of nukes under lock and key with a bunch of military bros with their finger on the trigger ready to annihilate on command. Nope just a Rent A Cop staring at a static screen ignoring alarms because of some little critters prancing around while a legally dead nun steals our country’s stockpile. Sleep tight America.
