WaPo:  Sting Reveals Security Gap at Nuclear Agency

Undercover congressional investigators posing as West Virginia businessmen obtained a license with almost no scrutiny from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that enabled them to buy enough radioactive material from U.S. suppliers to build a "dirty bomb," a new government report says.
Using a post-office box at Mail Boxes Etc., a telephone and a fax machine, the undercover investigators from the GAO obtained the license "without ever leaving their desks," the report says.

This is about govt. ineptitude/negligence, without even looking into the private sector.

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.
