Yesterday, on my twitter account,* Keith K. called to my attention to a long and very detailed article in the New Yorker that I completely missed regarding the break in at the nuke storage facility. See Eric Schlosser, Break-In at Y-12, How a handful of pacifists and nuns exposed the vulnerability of America’s nuclear-weapons sites, New Yorker (March 9, 2015).
The article is extremely well done. It paints a full picture of the Plowshares movement and the abysmal state of our nation’s security systems for nuclear weapons and fuel.
Please read the article and tell me what you think. Thanks to Keith K!
*My practice is to use twitter only as a device to send out new posts. I make a practice of not responding to twitter users because I don’t have time to do so, and I don’t much like the medium (“smoke signals” are often hard to understand). On this occasion only, I break my rule.
