    Default Lost Haliburton Nukes found. WTF

    Halliburton delays telling government about missing radioactive material
    Thursday February 10, 2005
    Associated Press Writer
    WASHINGTON (AP) A Halliburton Co. shipment of radioactive material went missing in October but the company didn't alert government authorities until this week, Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials said Thursday.

    The material two sources of the element americium, used in oil well exploration was found intact Wednesday in Boston after an intense search by federal authorities. NRC and Halliburton officials say the public never was in danger.

    The americium was being shipped from Russia to Houston, according to a report filed with the NRC by Halliburton.

    NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan said Halliburton did not notify the agency about the missing material until Tuesday. Depending on the material, government rules require notification either immediately or within 30 days.

    ``The focus through today was on trying to find the material,'' Sheehan said. ``We're going to be pressing them why the notification was not more timely.''

    Halliburton spokeswoman Wendy Hall blamed the company's shipper, saying it never alerted the Texas-based energy company that the material was missing until Tuesday. Halliburton then immediately contacted the NRC, she said.

    She said Halliburton contacted the shipping company ``multiple times'' about the shipment and was told it was en route to Houston. She declined to identify the company on grounds that Halliburton did not want its shipments targeted.

    Hall said the material was encased in a double-walled stainless steel cylinder, locked in a steel transport container designed to protect workers.

    ``All of this was found intact, and we have no information that leads us to believe that the public or environment were in danger,'' Hall said.

    Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., a frequent critic of the NRC, said the incident highlights inadequate security measures covering radioactive materials. The americium is classified as having the potential to permanently injure a person who fails to handle it properly, he said.

    Markey said the lag time in reporting the disappearance of dangerous materials leaves open the possibility they could fall into the hands of terrorists without the government's knowledge.

    According to the NRC report, the americium was imported from Russia by Halliburton Energy Services. The shipment went through Amsterdam, Netherlands, to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York on Oct. 9.

    The NRC report indicates the material was trucked to Massachusetts after a Boston label was inadvertently placed on the package at the freight company's Newark, N.J., facility.

    Homeland Security Department officials and the FBI began a search after the materials were reported missing. The americium was found at a freight facility in Boston.

    It was missing in October and they just first found out about it? How in the fuck can something like that be missing and the company not know about it? How does a company that could let something like that slide stay in business? It all sounds a little bit fishy to me.

    Well, I know I feel better now.
