WASHINGTON - Undercover investigators slipped radioactive material enough to make two small "dirty bombs" across U.S. borders in Texas and Washington state in a test last year of security at American points of entry.

Radiation alarms at the unidentified sites detected the small amounts of cesium-137, a nuclear material used in industrial gauges. But U.S. customs agents permitted the investigators to enter the United States because they were tricked with counterfeit documents.

( :thumbsup: Good Job...F'ing Idots!!! I'll be able to sleep better at night knowing this!!!!)

its really funny you bring this up. i was at the airport, and they pull me and my friend steph aside. they put us in a line, and they say we have to go through this machine that basically puffs air at you. it is supposed to check to radioactive material or other illegal substances. its a start i guess

i was happy to see someone thought i was a threathttp://weeklydavespeak.com/forums/images/smilies/lol.gifhttp://weeklydavespeak.com/forums/images/smilies/lol.gif

It reminds me of when I went to cancun....yea, there are millions of tourists through there every year, but the "US Customs" center, what a joke....they checked an ID...big whooptie doo.....never went through bags or anything any differently than a normal security camera does for a domestic flight....I knew of 10-12 people on our flight that smuggled things back they shouldn't have....
