your “thought of the day…”

September 19, 2011

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?

    It is amazing! And we know there is so much more that we never hear about. An “informed electorate” is an aspiration. The reality is depressing.

    Thanks for listening in for us all.
