your “thought of the day…”
Here’s a little news tidbit I heard on the radio this morning – on the “Democracy Now Headlines” at 10pm on 89.5FM. Interestingly, although I flipped through the radio dial all the rest of the day – to all the so-called news channels in Toronto (680News, 1010, CBC, and-so-on) – no one else carried this particular story…
American authorities answerable directly and only to the joint military chiefs, and the President, admitted today, that 3 tons of high-grade nuclear uranium has “disappeared”. Not only has it disappeared, but no one knows, yet, where it disappeared from.
But they know it is gone.
Now, I don’t think I need to explain any of the ramifications of that “discovery” and what it means – potentially – for the world.
I am more interested, at the moment, as to why the mainstream media chose to ignore the story?
It’s not everyday that 3 tons of high-grade uranium ore goes missing. Enough ore, by the way, to produce 100’s of nuclear weapons should someone choose to do so.
I did get, on my “news” radio channels, more Emmy coverage than I could ever care about; I know who won and who lost yesterday’s NFL games; that the Blue Jays blanked the Yankees – but I never heard about the missing uranium.
Do you ever wonder what else they don’t tell us about?
