Default Israel Stole Uranium from U.S. Stockpiles In 1950s and 1960s

NUMEC dump makes news but theft of uranium is not mentioned.

NRC: Western Pa. nuclear dump may have more waste
Associated PressMarch 14, 2014

PITTSBURGH A nuclear dump in western Pennsylvania could contain far more waste than originally thought, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's inspector general said in a new report.
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey on Thursday released the report, which found that missing or incomplete records make it impossible to know how much nuclear material is buried at the site about 30 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. The NRC said the former president of a company that made nuclear fuel at the site believes that the documents used for the current cleanup plan "grossly underestimate" the material buried there.
Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corp., or NUMEC, made nuclear fuel for submarines at a nearby plant and owned the dump site from 1957 until the 1980s. Shallow trenches were used to dispose of radioactive wastes.
Casey said in a statement that the report "raises serious concerns about the NRC's oversight" of the cleanup, and he urged quicker action to finish the project.
The Army Corps of Engineers has been involved in the cleanup since 2002, but it halted work in May 2012 when crews discovered unanticipated amounts of "complex" materials like uranium and plutonium. That prompted Casey, a Pennsylvania Democrat, to ask for the investigation.


Israel Stole Uranium from U.S. Stockpiles In 1950s and 1960s

By The Staff of AFP
"According to hundreds of documents from the FBI, CIA and other agencies recently declassified under the Freedom of Information Act, the United States contracted oversight of its nuclear materials stockpile to Zalman Shapiro, president of Numec Inc., an Apollo, Pa.-based company that U.S. intelligence suspected had ties to the newly formed Zionist government in Palestine. Over the next 11 years, 269 kilograms of enriched uranium were stolen from the plant in an operation guided by four known Mossad Israeli intelligence agents: Rafael Eitan, Avraham Ben-Dor, Ephraim Biegun and Avraham Hermoni."

This seems to be an accusation and not concrete proof.

Certainly not something for me to worry about in 2014.
