  1. It seems to have been the same ship, Oceanic Pintade that carried Swiss HEU waste to Savannah River site on Aug. 18th but only now confirmed. http://chronicle.augusta.com/latest-news/2015-09-15/highly-enriched-uranium-returned-us-switzerland Why didn’t they send the HEU to Zwilag in Wuerlingen? They lack confidence in it and also their ability to dig a dump in self-sealing mud?
    They just sentenced the Nun and friends who broke into the Y-12 HEU facility in Tennessee to something else – I guess they sent them back to jail.
