UN Loses WMD Plans

The UN is advertising it's effectiveness really well: Bomb making blueprints missing at the United Nations.
Toronto, ON-- Things tend to go missing from United Nations Manhattan headquarters. . . .

Now electronic drawings that give comprehensive details of how to build and test equipment essential for making nuclear bombs have vanished from the UN and UN investigators are saying they could show up sale anytime on the international black market.

Things that go missing from UN headquarters are taking a dangerous turn.

"The blueprints, running to hundreds of pages, show how to make centrifuges for enriching uranium," The Guardian International reported yesterday. "In addition, the investigators have been unable to trace key components for uranium centrifuge rigs and fear that drawings have been secreted away and could be for sale."

"Inspectors at the UN’s nuclear authority, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have been investigating the worst nuclear smuggling racket ever uncovered," the Guardian explained.

Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan headed the smuggling racket. Two years ago, the operation was caught selling sensitive nuclear technology to Libya and Iran.

"A senior official said several sets of blueprints for uranium centrifuges--the so-called P-1 and more advanced P-2 systems which were peddled by the Khan network--have gone missing.

In terms of build-your-own-bomb know-how, the missing blueprints are the real McCoy.
Considering that half the nations on the UN are the very same nations which would be interested in making just such a purchase off the black market, how likely do you think it is that these will ever be found? It's not surprising that it was 'lost' so easily.

When the question of whether the United States should be in the UN or how much of our dues we should pay is becoming more popular as an issue of discussion, the UN is making the choice really easy.
