Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.
"The nuclear industry's use of controversial private firm Wackenhut to train and manage the attacking teams used in security drills at U.S. nuclear plants is coming under increasing criticism from government investigators and Republican and Democratic members of a key Congressional Committee overseeing nuclear security."
With Wackenhut now involved in testing itself and its competitors, the new arrangement is a clear conflict of interest.
Wackenhut was caught cheating on a security drill held in June 2003 at a Department of Energy nuclear weapons site in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), said, "To anyone with a shred of common sense, it was a poor choice."
Wackenhut, the single largest supplier of private security guards to U.S. nuclear facilities, has overseen numerous security lapses, presided over training cutbacks, and tolerated lax security measures at multiple nuclear power plants and government nuclear weapons facilities throughout the U.S.The incidents are detailed in an SEIU report, titled "Homeland Insecurity: How
the Wackenhut Corporation is Compromising America's Nuclear Security." The report is available online at EyeonWackenhut.com
