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.

The ACLU, the American Immigration Council and other pro-amnesty groups filed a lawsuit Friday against the federal government because they claim the Obama administration´s policies are unconstitutional. The groups filed on behalf of mothers and children deported from a detention facility in Artesia, New Mexico for policies that would ensure "rapid deportations" and create "countless hurdles" according to the ACLU for people who illegally crossed the border. The facility itself has also had its fair share of problems. The center houses over 500 people and has been accused of keeping unsanitary practices. This past summer, immigration officials halted all intake and removal practices

LOS ANGELES — Mexico´s president spoke of the need for U.S. immigration reform on a two-day visit to immigrant-friendly California, saying those who reject diversity and inclusion will ultimately be proven wrong. "We want to be a factor of cohesion, not division, with full respect for the sovereignty of the United States," President Enrique Pena Nieto said Monday. "This, at the end, is about — and only about — a matter of justice for those who contribute so much to the development of the American society." Pena Nieto was welcomed by Gov.

I thought that going on vacation with the president would be a real perk of serving as deputy press secretary in the Obama White House. (Snip) That is—when you can find some down time. As Washington chews over yet another presidential “vacation,” and that most Washington of words—“optics”—let me take you behind the scenes of the last time President Obama took flack for supposedly being “disengaged” while world events marched on around him. It was Christmas Day 2009. Osama bin Laden was still at large. A 23-year-old Nigerian man was caught trying to bring down a passenger airliner headed for

Rep.

Democratic New York Rep. Charlie Rangel stood by earlier comments that Republican opposition to President Obama is in part based upon his race, and added in an interview with C-SPAN’s Q&A that slaveholding states became Tea Party states. “I have been requested not to talk about that too much,” Rangel said in the interview, when asked about his previous remark. “I think the reason for it is that it is just too darn obvious as to what it is all about.” “I think if you take a look and see which counties and which Congressional districts, which areas of the United States had the most prejudice, it would be the slaveholding states,” he continued.

“Huge,” “bold,” and “unprecedented” is how a thrilled Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D., Ill.) described reports that the Obama administration is considering granting legal status to up to 5 million illegal immigrants. He’s especially excited, he said, because the White House is actually trying to downplay the significance of the huge measure. “It’s music to my ears” said Gutiérrez, one of the leading voices in the House to pass comprehensive immigration reform, on MSNBC. Last month, he predicted that as many as 5 million people might gain status if President Obama opts to take unilateral action. Gutiérrez urged communities to take

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad!

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is

Having burned down and looted many businesses that serve their community, some residents of Ferguson (or maybe it is just the outsiders who came in to join the outrage) are realizing that it is going to be inconvenient to have nowhere nearby to buy food, liquor, tobacco, and other merchandise. Burned out stores also hire very few people, in case anyone actually wants a job.
