U.S. Releases Secret List of Nuclear Sites Accidentally
NYT ^ | June 2, 2009 | WILLIAM J. BROAD

Posted on 06/02/2009 6:23:20 PM PDT by balls

The federal government mistakenly made public a 266-page report, its pages marked “highly confidential,” that gives detailed information about hundreds of the nation’s civilian nuclear sites and programs, including maps showing the precise locations of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons.

The publication of the document was revealed Monday in an on-line newsletter devoted to issues of federal secrecy. That publicity set off a debate among nuclear experts about what dangers, if any, the disclosures posed. It also prompted a flurry of investigations in Washington into why the document was made public.

On Tuesday evening, after inquiries from The New York Times, the document was withdrawn from a Government Printing Office Web site.

...

President Obama sent the document to Congress on May 5 for Congressional review and possible revision, and the Government Printing Office subsequently posted the draft declaration on its web site.

I wonder if this was a problem of the document not being coded correctly (or some such) when the White House sent the copy over for Congressional review.

Either this is being done on purpose or it really is a bunch of screw ups.

Either way, it’s pretty scary for the US citizenry...

Accidentally? No way it was accidental. Someone released classified info that has been classified since I worked for the AF years ago. It is well known that it is classified and on a need to know basis even with a clearance and some ZERO tool makes it public? How convenient.

Was a copy sent to each of the “detainees” at Guantanamo for future use?

They have gotten a little too lax now that Odumbo is emphasizing transparency and openness.

That’s my feeling, too. Bambi is big on nuclear disarmament for the US, and what better way to do it than mess up our existing nuclear program? But as you say, why doesn’t he just go over and throw himself into one of Iran’s nuclear reactors and leave the rest of us alone?
