Was This A Rehearsal, Or A Stunt?

AN ELITE US unit has secretly removed a cache of weapons-grade uranium from a vulnerable site in Poland, fearing terrorists could have stolen it to make a crude nuclear bomb.

Working with Polish authorities, the US agency this week extracted 41kg of uranium in green canisters marked "radioactive" and "fissile". A huge motorcade delivered it to a Russian plane, which flew to a secure disposal site.


What is Poland doing with enough weapons-grade uranium to construct four roughly Hiroshima-sized bombs? Why are American soldiers 'liberating' such material? And why was it then given to the Russians?

This is something I plan to watch.
