Hagel: Uranium Seized by
ISIS ‘Not a Threat Now’

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/10/2014 12:33:56 PM

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel indicated the administration isn’t particularly concerned with the uranium seized by ISIS terrorists in Iraq, saying the “old chemicals” aren’t weaponized. Reuters obtained a letter written to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on July 8 from Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim, in which the envoy asks the world body for help to “stave off the threat” of the use of the 88 pounds of uranium compounds from the University of Mosul by terrorists. “Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote,

Comments:
I am always comforted by what Hagel has to say. s/o I´m terrified what those terrorists are dreaming up for this country. What will the weak, pathetic Obama do when a suitcase bomb goes off in one of our cities?? How will he blame Republicans for that? Of course campaigning is more important to Obama.

How about a pressure cooker bomb filled with nuclear material Chuckie? Would that stop the traffic in downtown Manhattan?

Rush just made a very astute comment about this uranium. We were told by the MSM that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Of course there weren´t.

Can´t open the PJM page, but I read the letter at a Reuters site. Frightening. The UN said there is the potential for trouble should this stuff fall into the hands of the bad guys. Well, no kidding. But this is more s**t hitting the fan thanks to our el presidente. The UN was issuing a warning to all nations that this has happened. Hagel can make light of it at his own peril. I can think of lots harrowing situations when these chickens come home to roost(to coin a phrase!)

What, exactly, was taken, Chuckie? What´s the half life? 100 years? 1000 years? This is the same kind of stuff Harry Reid doesn´t want at Yucca Mountain because they can´t guarantee secure storage for 10,000 years.

What about those 500 tons of yellowcake shipped from Iraq to Canada in 2008?

Ok, everybody, calm down. Uranium comes in multiple flavors, the most common of which is harmless unless you cast it into a bullet; it´s more dense than lead.

99.9+% of all Uranium is U-238, usually written 92U-238; 92 protons, 238-92= 146 neutrons. It CAN NOT be made to fission. WHICH is why countries like the US, Russia and Iran spend billions building gaseous mass centrifuges to eek the less than 0.5% of fissionable U-235 out of the raw ore; it can be made to fission with the right stuff.
Thing is, you need about 10 pounds minimum and you´d a ton or more of raw ore to start and several tons of the most hazardous chemicals know to mankind to get it out.

PS - you can safely carry raw, never irradiated U-238 around in your bare hands. It´s barely radioactive. Half life is something like 10 billion years.

The profound ignorance of John Q about anything with the name "nuclear" attached always amazes me.

Privacy: President Obama promises your personal financial info will be safe in his Big Brother database, but the agency stockpiling that data by its own admission can´t keep other, less-sensitive info safe. Raising new data security and privacy fears, a former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau official has blown the whistle on the sievelike nature of the data the agency already is collecting and storing on consumers.

Immigration: Three in five Americans say the tens of thousands of minors who have crossed the border "should be ordered to leave the U.S." What about that do the Congress and president not understand? The latest IBD/TIPP Poll, conducted June 24 to 29, asked those Americans who are following the story what to do about the influx of unaccompanied minors. Those saying that the government should order them to leave totaled 60%. Breaking that sizeable majority down, 64% of independents wanted the minors sent home, as did 40% of Democrats and 80% of Republicans. There were 879 Americans surveyed in

No one knows just how many tens of thousands of Central American nationals — most of them desperate, unescorted children and teens — are streaming across America´s southern border. Yet this phenomenon offers us a proverbial teachable moment about the paradoxes and hypocrisies of Latin American immigration to the U.S. For all the pop romance in Latin America associated with Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, few Latinos prefer to immigrate to such communist utopias or to socialist spinoffs like Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador or Peru. Instead, hundreds of thousands of poor people continue to risk danger to enter democratic,

I´m sure that many wiil pass off what Reuters and Yahoo News have just been caught doing as some kind of an innocent mistake, and perhaps it was. But isn´t odd how often those "mistakes" so often end up giving President Obama and the left more credit than they deserve? Yesterday, a Reuters story at Yahoo News was headlined "President Obama Visits the Border." That´s a pretty remarkable headline, given Obama´s quite widely known refusal — except perhaps by low-information Yahoo readers — to visit the Texas-Mexico border or to visit facilities where Unaccompanied Alien Children are being detained by the

In a stunning display of callousness, the Defense Department has announced that thousands of soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — will be notified in the coming weeks that their service to the country is no longer needed. Last week, more than 1,100 Army captains — the men and women who know best how to fight this enemy because they have experienced multiple deployments — were told they’ll be retired from the Army. The overall news is not unexpected. The Army has ended its major operations in Iraq and is winding down in Afghanistan. Budget cuts are projected to shrink the Army from its current

Glenn Greenwald´s ´Innocent´ Muslims
List Includes People With Alleged
Ties To Islamic Extremism

On Wednesday, Glenn Greenwald released the names of five Muslim-Americans on whom, he alleged, the FBI and the NSA have unfairly spied. However, what is clear after further investigation is that the five named individuals in the Greenwald expose’ have alleged ties to extremism, and also have allegedly engaged in radical activities. The first person on Greenwald’s list is Faisal Gill. Gill was a spokesman for the American Muslim Council (AMC) while under the leadership of now-jailed Islamist radical Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was indicted and pleaded guilty in 2003 for financing terrorism and assassination plots.

Calling it guilty of a "profound betrayal of the ideals of the civil rights movement," the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees announced this week that was severing its partnership with the United Negro College Fund. Why? Because UNCF has accepted donations from conservative philanthropists the Koch brothers, and Dr. Michael Lomax, the fund´s president, spoke at a Koch-sponsored event. Lomax told AFSCME to get over it. "UNCF has over 100,000 donors with a wide range of views, but they all have one thing in common: They believe in helping young students of color realize their dreams of

We have been told that Rick Perry was invited to attend Obama’s round table immigration meeting with a group of government officials and “faith leaders.” It was another of his behind-closed-doors meetings, so it is still unclear exactly who was in attendance. Photos cut off the table of participants so they are not all shown. One published list of participants is from Christian Post: Those who attend the border crisis meeting at Love Field Airport in Dallas include: Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings; Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (R-Texas); Grand Prairie Mayor Ron Jensen; Chris Liebrum of the Baptist General Convention; Arne

The president expressed concern about the risk of further escalation and emphasized the need for all sides to do everything they can to protect the lives of civilians and restore calm,” the White House said in a readout

A militia has set up a command center south of San Antonio to prepare for what they say is a mission to protect the United States from the influx of illegal immigrants. The militia, operating via the website PatriotsInformationHotline.com, founded by Barbie Rogers, said members at the command center in Von Ormy will deploy to Laredo first and spread to other parts of the border, a local ABC affiliate reported. Chris Davis, the 37-year-old commander of the group, would not disclose how many members make up the militia, but said the troops would deploy “in a few weeks.” “We have patriots all across this country who are willing to sacrifice their

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.
