A US Security Disaster: Elderly Nun Breaks into US Facility Storing Weapons-Grade Uranium with "Bolt Cutters"
August 5th, 2012
Conservative Refocus Notes:
No joke, an "elderly Nun" breaks into a US facility in Tennessee, the only one known to exist in the US, which stores weapons grade uranium, with nothing but bolt cutters?.
Enriched uranium, ladies and gentlemen, is an element that virtually every radical in the world would love to get his hands on. In fact, it's what the Iranians are trying desperately to perfect, at this very moment, in order to finally produce a viable nuclear weapon.
The Iranians are doing this at a very hefty international cost to its own people, by the way.
Which then begs the question "what in the hell has become of US Nuclear Security?"

Sister Megan Rice, along with two male accomplices aged 63 and 57, allegedly used bolt cutters to get in to the Y-12 national security complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
It is the US government's only facility for storing weapons-grade enriched uranium, a key component in nuclear bombs.
WSI Oak Ridge, the contractor responsible for protecting the facility, is owned by G4S, which failed to provide enough security guards for the Olympics. That led to the British government having to use military personnel for the Games.
The groups's chief executive Nick Buckles recently told MPs the Olympics fiasco was a "humiliating shambles for the company."
In the latest debacle Sister Megan, from Nevada, got through four fences to gain access to the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility, which holds the enriched uranium.
She is then alleged to have spray painted the building and poured human blood on it as a protest.
A spokeswoman for G4S declined to comment when contacted by Reuters. A spokesman for the US National Nuclear Security Administration said: "We're taking this very, very seriously,"
All nuclear operations have been temporarily stopped at the facility following the security breach, and security personnel will undergo training.
Sister Megan and her two alleged accomplices were charged with trespassing, and could face a fine of up to $100,000 and up to a year in prison
