Submission + - Bush set up public Web site w/ nuke plans

monopole writes: An official freely accessible US government web site contained detailed plans for a Nuclear Bomb: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/03/world/middleeast /03cnd-documents.html?hp&ex=1162616400&en=d6e60f28 8e881789&ei=5094&partner=homepage To quote: Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to "leverage the Internet" to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein. But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq's secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb. The official government site also had instructions for making Sarin and Tabun Nerve gas: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/03/world/middleeast /03documents.html?_r=1&oref=slogin This on the heels of three USB drives containing nuclear secrets showning up at a Meth lab in Los Alamos: http://www.nature.com/news/2006/061030/full/061030 -9.html I feel so much safer now!!
