Just in case things weren't bad enough: Bolivian Police Seize 2 Tons of Uranium

Bolivian Police Seize 2 Tons of Uranium

Published August 29, 2012
EFE









Bolivian police on Tuesday confiscated two tons of uranium that was being stored at a building in central La Paz located near the U.S. and Spanish embassies.

Four people, all of them Bolivian nationals, were arrested while they were transferring the uranium from one vehicle to another, Deputy Interior Minister Jorge Perez said.

The radioactive material was in sacks of jute and nylon, he said.

Since Bolivia does not produce uranium, Perez said, authorities assume the consignment originated in either of two neighboring countries that do: Brazil or Chile.

The commander of the elite police unit that carried out the operation, Col. Eddy Torrez, said the seizure was the fruit of a six-week investigation.
Police pounced when they learned the people in possession of the uranium planned to meet Tuesday with a potential buyer, the colonel said.

Perez said one of the people arrested is an engineer who told police he was holding the uranium for other people, but provided no information on the owners of the cache.

Holy Weapons of Mass Destruction, Batman! I'm feeling deja vu all over again. No doubt that was not yellowcake uranium, that was not billed out for Iran, who is not developing nuclear weapons, which will not be found after our tanks clear the way for UN inspectors.

The stock photo of the the guy holding "enriched" uranium is a joke. If it were weapons or fuel grade uranium there is no way people would be hauling it around in sacks with out a lot of people dying. Probably two tons of uranium ore which by itself would produce little harmful radiation. You probably have more radation in your basement or smoke detectors than you realize. Have a cat? Pass a geiger counter over your littler box. Anyone can buy uranium ore off the internet.
The two tons of cocaine the Bolivian police let pass inorder to make the uranium bust will do more damage on our streets that two tons of uranium ore ever will.

In south america there are tons of bush people they can hire to do anything for a few dollars per day. Poisoining a few guys is no biggie.

I am glad you brought up drugs, they do test tuns. They put out fall guys in collusion with the corrupt LE for a token bust to put in the media, and just to study the cops other times.

I also thought this is not enough to do anything, on its own. How ever it sounds like a just the start sort of thing. not the end of A ONE TIME THING.
