Joe Goat forwarded this BBC story:
The US has revealed that it removed more than 1.7 metric tons of radioactive material from Iraq in a secret operation last month.
“This operation was a major achievement,” said US Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham in a statement.
He said it would keep “potentially dangerous nuclear materials out of the hands of terrorists”.
Along with 1.77 tons of enriched uranium, about 1,000 “highly radioactive sources” were also removed.
Remember, kids – Iraq was never a threat!
More seriously, though, you ought to see the results of a GoogleNews search with the terms “radioactive” and “Iraq.”
HINT: Not even the BBC News story showed up on the first page, three freakin’ days after the BBC filed the report.
