Bogus Firm Gets Nuclear License in Sting Operation

Hosted by

The General Accounting Office launched an uncover operation to see if some agents could buy radioactive materials using forged documents. They succeeded, exposing a major hole in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's security system. If this is all that stands between Americans and a dirty bomb attack, how safe are we? We hear what went wrong from Kathleen Day of the Washington Post and what the government must do from former NRC physicist Joel Lubenau.
