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On Tuesday evening, after inquiries from The New York Times, the document was withdrawn from a Government Printing Office Web site.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

He REALLY needs to stay on a college campus.

He’s not a serious leader —just a bumbler. The man bungles EVERYTHING.

You could be right on target for all I know.

Either the people in the Obama White House and today’s Congress are blithering idiots, or this was a designed act.

Neither one is very flattering to this administration, and the Democrat controlled Congress.

It makes it probable that Obama’s hand directed this, but difficult to prove. That the Gov. Printing Office posted the draft gives him plausible deniability. Correct me if I am wrong, but it makes it hard to put this item on the list.

What the heck is a "highly confidential" classification?

No such classification level I have ever heard of, and I have had clearances of several levels over the years.

Hussein just jumped right over #3,483 to #7,942 in The Plan Book. Guess someone is getting too close to the BC or something even more incriminating. Time to dust off the bug out pack.

What is most amazing is that the NY Slimes got a guote from John Deutch, former CIA director who was fired for taking a laptop home that had highly secret documents and then dialed into the internet from his house.

Why did the times go to him for a comment about release of secrete information?????????

“These screw-ups happen,” said John M. Deutch, a former Director of Central Intelligence and Deputy Secretary of Defense who is now at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It’s going further than I would have gone but doesn’t look like a serious breach.”

Yes, quite the coincidence right before he leaves to pay homage the Islamics

If this latest stunt is not definitive proof of Treason upon the American People of The United States I don't know what is! Why in the Sam hell is Obama allowed to leave on a Muzzy A$$ Licking Homage? This makes no sense whatsoever!

Agreed. Perhaps the author does not understand classification. Or, perhaps the author was told about the classification from a source who opined the info was
“Highly Confidential”.

The rest of us Freepers are awake, too; the problem is that absolutely nobody knows what to do about it. This is all happening so fast that we are completely blindsided.

I knew he wanted to do the things he’s doing, but I thought it would take him a few years and Congress would moderate it. He’s dumped Congress, he “rules” alone, and in 4 months, he’s laid the groundwork for the destruction of our country. Good reason to feel like a deer in the headlights!

I guess I can put the item up with a question mark. That way it is on the record if more evidence connected the president to this surfaces.

Our borders resemble an endless conga-line of millions, and now the feds release the locations of our nuke sites.

Perfect..

In an effort to save face, the Feds nuke Houston, mistaking it for North Korea.

Weird coincidence, huh? I'm sure the administration didn't leak those alleged interrogation photos. Furthermore, I'm certain that whatever they release later this month will also not be released by them.

I pray the adults show up before he totally destroys our country. 0bama is the least qualified person in the world to ‘rule’ over us. He is not an American. He and his racist wife hate this country, especially the Christian white heterosexual man. He is a born and bred Socialist Muslim in disguise. They are racists and bigots to the bone.

We have to fight him at every level, every bill, every executive order etc.

That ought to get me on a few more lists, but I really don’t care anymore.

I wish I had written down headlines and things Obama has done day by day since the inauguration. Every day brings new frightening events detrimental to our country.

No, I don't believe much is by accident with Obama in charge.

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

Well then maybe one of Odumbo's gov't nose-pickers will get lax enough to accidentally release his long form birth certificate.

In the regime of "transparency and openness", you know.

Accidentally? No way it was accidental.

That's my take on it to. Sure, rarely, very very rarely, someone may screw up and there will be an exposure. But my gut feel is that when there is a disclosure of classified, it is intentional for whatever reason. They need to find the {expletive} responsible and string him/her up by their thumbs. Maybe waterboard them until they reveal why they did it.
