NUMEC plant during the 1950s and 1960s. Hundreds of kilos of the stuff, right from under our very noses - over and over, again, for years. See, Global Fissile Material Report, p 115, http://fissilematerials.org/library/gfmr10.pdf; also, S. Hersh, The Samson Option; also, http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2004/may/13/israels-bomb/

The US was the Crazy Eddie of fissionable materials. Come on in - we're givin' the stuff away!

Or, if you're friends with one of our primary trading partners - let's say, Pakistan -- just tell them that King Saud sent you, and we'll set you up to you run your own global proliferation network.

Like this guy did after CIA Director GHW Bush entered into the BCCI-Safari Club deal with Saudi intel head head Prince Turki. AQ Khan - another satisfied customer! Come on down - we're givin' it away!
