Dean: Security? What Security?

Apparently, Howeird Dean is caught in his own security flap about Vermont Yankee after his constant ranting about Bush and how the capture of Saddam has not made us safer.

During Dean's final year in office in 2002, an audit concluded that despite a decade of repeated warnings of poor safety at Vermont Yankee, Dean's administration was poorly prepared for a nuclear disaster.


Security was so lax at Vermont Yankee that in August 2001, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staged a drill in which three mock terrorists gained access to the plant. The agency gave Vermont Yankee the worst security rating among the nation's 103 reactors.

This is the kind of stuff that Dean is going to get in the general election from the Republicans. They are going to tear him a new one, if he gets the nod.
