Confusion, panic.. sometimes that **** is worse than the radiation from a meltdown because it spreads faster.

It seems like we are constantly being told that things are secure (like the border) when they are in fact not. Our electrical grid has NO protection and could easily be taken down resulting a MAJOR outage taking days or weeks to repair. We get a lot of lip service from politicians who know how to waste money on global warming but can't quite seem to protect our basic infrastructure.

What are you suggesting? That our political leaders actually prioritize their most basic responsibilities above all their pet projects and plans for how to micromanage the population?

That's just crazy talk.

I worked at a nuclear power plant during a shutdown to change out fuel rods, it would take one heck of a IED for the reactor to even feel a Shockwave from the outside let alone cause any damage.

"The fences and checkpoints you see at Calvert Cliffs are only a small part of our defense in depth security strategy," he said. "In fact, much of our defense lies in the things you can't see."
Absolutely correct, I've worked in a Nuke Plant, they are very ready.

LOL - my view of the Daily Caller just plummeted several notches.

Back in the day I worked on the Ginna security force. And one of the guys that I worked with then (as shift supervisors) went on to become the head of security for the company that owns the power plant in this article. That my old friend and fellow midnight shift war-gammer would have one of his plants in a less than secure state is beyond laughable.

From personal experience, I call BS on this one.

The first M-16 i ever saw in real life was at GINNA. My dad worked there, I remember you used to be able to drive right up to it.

It's not terribly difficult to drive onto the property of a nuclear plant and park. I'd like to see them try and get inside. My father-in-law has worked at nuclear plants all over the world since the early 70's, including plant manager at Ginna years back. There's no way anyone is doing any damage from the parking lot, or wandering inside the facility without going through intense security. This article is silly.

Used to be, too, that you could stop by the guard house and pick up a permit to fish on the property when RG&E owned it. You could fish the warm water off the plant discharge canal from a boat and some nights there would be 15 or 20 bobbing out there in the darkness. But you didn't tie up to shore, much less set foot on the shore outside the perimeter fence, or you would very quickly get a visit and a polite request to not do so. LOL

A lot of things used to be.............. and then everything changed. And another anniversary is coming up.

I could only imagine the comments here if there was "too" much security at the plant. People would be complaining that we are only wasting good money to protect a plant that only needs minimal protection.

Naahhh, rate payer's money not tax payer's money. Smaller set of activists protesting this.

Detained? Well, when I worked it we carried side arms and had access to long guns ---- but no handcuffs........... what's that tell ya? LOL

Seriously, unless this has changed too, it is contract security with "citizen's arrest" powers. A tad higher level of authorized force, though. The safety of the plant being related to the safety of the public and all that.
