ENE News ^ | April 21, 2013

WATE: Authorities are investigating after a security guard was fired upon at the Watts Bar Nuclear Power Plant. It happened around 2 a.m. today on the TVA property near the Tennessee River about a quarter mile from the plant's protected area. Officials say the security officer was patrolling the area when he was shot at, he returned fire and was uninjured. The shooting lead the Watts Bar plant staff to declare an unusual event, which is the lowest of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's four emergency classifications. The FBI will also be sending a team. A suspect has not been found.

Haven’t I read the Watts Bar Nuclear Power Plant is THE most secure plant in America? Can’t get closer than 2 miles from there.

Or am I thinking of another plant in Tennessee?

Re dry run: even the Boston bombings could be a dry run to see how the cameras get the patsy kids they convinced to do the deed. Terrorists sure know a lot more about surveillance than they did one week ago.

Answering my own question. It’s the Oak Ridge plant I was thinking of.

Whenever there is an “unusual event” at a nuke plant, other nuke plants in the US get very tense.

I once had the opportunity to meet the guy in charge of security at a natural gas powered plant. A Vietnam veteran, he was not the kind of guy it would be wise to try to sneak up on and surprise. He had a hand picked security detail, and a bunch of really expensive special weapons as needed.

My brother works at a nuclear plant. After 911, security was beefed up A LOT. I’m not going to say anything more on the subject.

The liberal lefties are already hoping it’s “a white guy”.

Correction: Christian middle class middle aged white guy. Anyone notice how the press expressed more outrage and hatred toward Zimmerman?

Really? I’ve been inside a lot of non-nuclear power plants and the security is always just a notch above Barney Fife.

LOL! Hard to say since we know ABSOLUTELY nothing about him other than what they “feed” to us. Sadly a lot of sheeple suck it right up.

They’ve been trying to for years, but it’s ramped up dramatically in the last week.
