Re: [casi] Trent Lott on Uranium

Captured weapons-grade uranium weighing more than 33 pounds is on display at
the paramilitary police headquarters of southeast province of Sanliurfa,
Turkey, September 28, 2002. Turkish gendarmes seized the uranium and
detained two men accused of smuggling the material, Anatolian Agency said.
Authorities believe the uranium came from an eastern European country and
has a value about $5 million. (Anatolian via Reuters)

The article includes a photograph which it says is the weapons-grade
uranium. Clearly written on the side is
"Made in West  Germany". !!!!!!!!!
No! I am not joking!!!!!

Hope this is of interest,
