Security at Indian Point with a wink and nod is rumored to let the Mistresses of certain high ranking employees into the plant grounds, so it's not as if Security at the plant is anything to write home about...further, a study of security at the plant has lead GNB to believe it quite possible to successfully attack the plant, to take down the reactors without actually entering the physical grounds of Entergy's failing reactors on the Hudson (report coming soon to this blog)...meanwhile, as we begin to bring life back to Green Nuclear Butterfly, it seems that the State of New York is eliminating all budgeting for guard troops at Nuclear Plants in the state including Indian Point. Why not hang a Terrorist Welcome sign on the front gate at Indian Point's easily attacked, potentially destroyed plant? Talk about letting our guard down...Neil Sheehan must be pissing himself!
Newsday – (New York) National Guard troops pulled from nuclear plants. National Guard troops that have stood guard at four upstate New York nuclear power plants since shortly after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks are being withdrawn this summer. A spokesman for the state Division of Military and Naval Affairs tells WSTM-TV in Syracuse that there was not any money included in the state budget for keeping the troops at nuclear plants near Oswego and Ginna. A spokeswoman for Constellation Energy, which operates the two nuclear plants at Nine Mile Point in Scriba, says it was notified that the troops will be withdrawn from there this summer. The Division of Military and Naval Affairs says about 100 troops are stationed at the four plants, and deployments at others in the state are under review.
