86. Uh, ya
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 09:17 AM by dirk
From that site, re Pantex:

FUNCTION: Currently evaluates, refurbishes, and modifies stockpiled weapons, fabricates high-explosive components and disassembles retired nuclear weapons. Tests Helium components and assemblies and burns the waste. Formerly assembled weapons. Last new nuclear weapon (W88 warhead) assembled on July 31, 1990. Refurbishes (reassembles) nuclear weapons.

What's your point? It doesn't say they own the bloody things, does it? It says they perform those services involving the weapons and their components. The US government still owns the weapons--they're part of the country's stockpile. Did you think that the government just lets Pantex keep whatever uranium it finds in those bombs that it disassembles?
