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On Tuesday evening, after inquiries from The New York Times, the document was withdrawn from a Government Printing Office Web site.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

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?

It’s absolutely surreal. I feel like America is one big deer in Omonster’s headlights.

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one awake and wanting to run out of the road!

It’s all so obvious.

U.S. Releases Secret List of Nuclear Sites Accidentally

Accident? I think not. No way this type of information gets posted on a web site without permission from the highest authority. Obama is giving this country away little by little … wonder what Soros and company has promised him for his betrayal of America?

"The federal government mistakenly made public..."

Mistakenly, my butt.

Axelrod: "Hey, I have an idea. Let's publish a list of all the nuke sites in the US, so America's enemies will know where they are. It will make it easier for America's enemies to give us a new 'crisis', and it will make the sheeple afraid of nukes, so they won't be demanding nuclear power plants".

Emanuel: "Great idea. I'll get right on it."

I just bet it was an accident. There sure has been a lot of these “accidents” with this administration.

We had better remember who and what this administration represents. Greenies, environmental wackos, socialists, and the list goes on forever.

We are in grave danger with these bumbling leftists and they are not acting in the best interests of the United States. I will be so bold as to say that they really hate their own country.

When I worked for the DoD I saw many things that were classified at various levels. One day there was a meeting updating the info in question. I wandered into the room looking for a different meeting(in my defense no one had flipped the sign over indicating there was classified stuff “out”). I was NOT welcome and escorted off the floor by an armed guard. I had every clearance available to civilian employees at the time. Those guys were VERY serious about that stuff not getting out. This had to be deliberate.

“The information, considered sensitive but not classified, was assembled for transmission later this year to the International Atomic Energy Agency as part of a process by which the United States is opening itself up to more stringent inspections in hopes that foreign countries will do likewise, especially Iran and other states believed to be clandestinely developing nuclear arms.

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.”

Directed by Obama. If he did not want it declassified, he would not have selected it to be sent.

(Ugh! I shouldn't think thoughts like this:) Supposing this clown stands safely with his Muzzie brethren while his commie buddies gang up and nuke the crap out of America. All good in his eyes:

1. All the superpowers are crushed in a mutual nuclear conflagration, leaving Islam as the dominant force in the world.

2. Muzzies the world over look at Barak Hussein Obama as their Savior and set him up as supreme leader of the new caliphate.

3. Most of the evil peckerwood WHITEYS wiped off the face of the earth.
