Title: ‘US nuclear power plants very vulnerable to cyber attacks’
Source: RT
Date: Feb 25, 2013

Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof: In the case of the United States it’s aimed at our grid system, as the president point out, and at our critical infrastructure, which is very vulnerable already and this has been known, including our nuclear reactors.

There have been recent tests on this and they’ve been quite successful in disrupting the ability of these nuclear reactors to respond.

So the threat of a cyber attack from unknown entities is very serious.

    What? They must hate us for our "freedoms." Why else would they want to destroy us? (sarcasm).

    Who needs to smuggle a bomb onto soil when all they have to do is shut down the critical systems of a NPP. Get it shut down long enough and you'll have a Chernobyl situation that will make everything from Maine to Washington DC uninhabitable. Think about how much critical infrastructure and cities are located in between there. Boston, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington DC. How many NPPs are in that area, all subject to a kill bot that would turn them into massive dirty bombs.

    The Prez and the US Govn't need to get it into their heads that nuclear power is NOT SAFE. It created MASSIVE amounts of waste that will be sitting around for hundreds of thousands of years.

    As much as I don't want to see it, and pray to the gods that it doesn't, it's going to take either an Fukushima or Chernobyl like situation to occur on US soil before they open their eyes.

    more panic propaganda for the police-state 'Pink Cadillac Mommas'. If they were sooo worried about the welfare of the American people, we'd have been honestly apprised as to Fukushima's aftermath and a real program would already be in place to shut these death machines down. Because we know neither of these points are in motion, it's obvious this 'former' Pentagon operative's 'advisory' is a part of the latest push to justify a net-wide 'kill switch'…
