+ - US Dirty Bomb Drill Finds Flaws in Preparedness

Submitted by phobos13013
phobos13013 (813040) writes "The TOPOFF-4 Dirty Bomb Excercise was performed by the US Homeland Security Department last week. The scenario consisted of three radiological IEDs being detonated in two US cities and in Guam simultaneously. According to a hearing held by the Congressional Committee on Science and Technology this week the testing capabilities for radiological assessment of the nation's laboratory network would require approximately four years to completely characterize a disaster of this scale."
