Let's build a bomb

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission removed its massive public reading room from the Internet Monday after nuclear safety activists and media organizations found several documents on it containing sensitive information they said could help terrorists.The information included floor plans for nuclear laboratories at several universities, specifying the types and locations of nuclear materials they use.The NRC said the removal of the online document library is temporary and that documents will be posted again after they are scrubbed of sensitive information.Critics said the action was too late -- coming three weeks after the problem was first publicized -- and too drastic, involving the removal of thousands of non-sensitive documents. All you have to do is to look on the Internet, follow the blog's instructions and you can build your bomb. You'd never find a sensitive issue like that in the Bemidji pioneer or Washington Post.
