Federal and local officials were involved in the incident, which began to unfold around 4 p.m. (7 p.m. ET), when a “suspicious item” was discovered outside the device assembly facility security perimeter fence, said Dave Taylor, the spokesman. [...]

    "Did anyone see that box of plutonium I was saving? I hope nobody threw it away – that stuff's dangerous. I had a 'No tirar' sticky right on the top of it."

    Must have been a brain. The government find them to be both suspicious, mysterious, and quite threatening.

    I don't suppose anybody bothered to look *inside* the NNSS or the shady contractors running that dump. The entire place is suspicious.

    In the 80's, the U.S. trained Afghani al Queda and mujahedeen there. What skills were so important that they flew rebels and terrorists in from half-way around the planet to NNSS? Why, IED and sniper training – responsible for most of the 2000 U.S. casualties in Afghanistan so far. Back then, it was supposedly to help them kill Russian soldiers 'better'.

    After 9/11, we trained anti-Saddam Iraqui terrorists there. That was a failed attempt to provoke Iraq into a war. In the end, it was easier for the U.S. to just make up a story and invade.

    A few years ago, the U.S. government was busy training Iranian MEK terrorists. They use to be Saddam's private Iran death squad and pretty much hate everyone. Remember that *Iranian* hostage thing? MEK does – they were there. The U.S. was supposedly training these guys to provoke Iran into a war. In the end, we'll make up a story and invade, and MEK will be there to send back amputee U.S. soldiers.

    The U.S. also used the NNSS to torture 'detainees', but with all the terrorists and wars – I'm not sure which prisoners we sent there.
