YOU ARE NOT SAFE. Michael Chertoff has made our lives more UNsafe. Today it was revealed that a license was obtained by undercover feds that enabled them to buy radioactive material - enough to make a dirty bomb. SAY WHAT?!? People RIGHT HERE in the US could buy and send a dirty bomb to your home any day? How do you feel about that, America?
And Michael Chertoff is incompetent and has run the Department of Homeland Security into the ground. He's the Wolfie of the DHS. He should be fired today. And we're glad Lou Dobbs agrees with us!
Undercover congressional investigators posing as West Virginia businessmen obtained a license with almost no scrutiny from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that enabled them to buy enough radioactive material from U.S. suppliers to build a "dirty bomb," a new government report says.
The investigators obtained the license within 28 days from officials at the NRC, the federal agency that in addition to regulating nuclear power plants oversees radioactive materials used in health care and industry, the report by the Government Accountability Office says. NRC officials approved the request with a minimal background check that included no face-to-face interview or visit to the purported company to ensure it existed and complied with safety rules, the report says.
