    @mrubin1971Two news stories from recent weeks, if true, should raise a red flag in the United States that Iran is preparing to use Hezbollah to strike at U.S. interests in Latin America, if not in the United States itself.First, this story from the Lebanese news portal Naharnet and sourced in part to Israeli radio. The Naharnet story was taken down shortly after it appeared: Hezbollah is using a training base established by Iran in northern Nicaragua near the border with Honduras, the Israeli radio reported on Thursday [September 6]. “The area is cordoned off and there are around 30 members...

    An American seized in Yemen in a sweep of suspected al-Qaida members had been a laborer at six U.S. nuclear power plants, and authorities are investigating whether he had access to sensitive information or materials that would be useful to terrorists. Sharif Mobley, 26, worked for contractors at plants in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland from 2002 to 2008, mostly hauling materials and setting up scaffolding, plant officials said. Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman Neil Sheehan said Friday that investigations are under way into which areas Mobley entered. But he noted that areas containing nuclear fuel are tightly controlled, and that...

The Buena, N.J. native has also been accused of taking part in several acts of terrorism, Yemini officials say. He also purportedly has ties to the same branch of al-Qaeda who are suspected of attempting...

    Yesterday, President Obama announced loan funding approvals for $8 Billion to construct a new Nuclear Power Plant in Georgia, the first to be constructed in the U.S. for more than 30 years. That $8 Billion might seem a lot, and environmentalists are all venting the same old misinformation they always have, saying that money could be better spent on renewable plants. Do the three versions of renewable power stack up on a dollar for dollar basis when compared to Nuclear power? Here I actually do the comparison with links to actual data, and the result is actually no contest. Nuclear...
  • The Pain in Spain is Their Broken Energy Policy (The Energy policy that is coming to the US)

    The Great Spain Energy Plan by Alex Adrianson, The Heritage Foundation Spain’s Renewable Energy Boondoggle A funny thing about President Barack Obama’s suggestion that we look to Spain for guidance on energy policy: Spain’s experience reveals that green energy is a job killer, not a job creator. In January, President Obama urged a rally in Ohio: “Think of what’s happening in countries like Spain, Germany and Japan, where they’re making real investments in renewable energy. They’re surging ahead of us, poised to take the lead in these new industries.” But Gabriel Calzado of Spain’s Rey Juan Carlos University calculates that...

    BUCHANAN, N.Y. — For a striped bass in the Hudson River, a clutch of trout eggs in Lake Michigan or a salmon in San Francisco Bay, drifting a little too close to a power plant spells death. Sucked in with enormous volumes of water, battered against the sides of pipes and heated by steam, the small fry of the aquatic world are being sacrificed to the cooling systems of power plants around the country. Environmentalists say the killing is needless, but energy-industry officials say opponents of nuclear power exaggerate the losses. The issue is being debated at an Indian Point...

    A suspected terrorist accused of conspiring to assassinate President Bush said he proposed the plot but it wasn't pursued, and he was frustrated that other members of his al-Qaida cell lacked initiative, according to prosecutors. A government motion unsealed this week by a federal judge reveals new details in the case against Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, 24, who is scheduled to go on trial next month. Prosecutors say the Falls Church resident has admitted joining al- Qaida while attending college in Saudi Arabia and that he discussed numerous terrorist plots, including plans to assassinate Bush and hijack airplanes. Abu Ali...

    Entergy Corp., the second-largest U.S. nuclear-power generator, is facing new opposition to its Buchanan, New York, plant: Paul Tudor Jones and other hedge-fund managers are joining environmentalists who want the facility closed. Sept. 11 showed the threat of a terrorist attack on the Indian Point reactors is too great, given their location near 20 million people in the New York City region, Jones said in a speech this week before analysts and investors a block from the World Trade Center site. The plant should be shut within five years, said Jones, who manages $8 billion. Financial support from hedge-fund managers...

Nuclear plants "are a vulnerability target which could have certain consequences" if attacked, one official said. The bulletin does not mention a specific threat. Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has...
