May 25, 2002  Washington, D. C. - This Memorial Day weekend, the U. S. government has announced several terrorist threat warnings. The latest came from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission placing all 103 nuclear power plants throughout the country on a heightened state of alert. This weekend the FBI also warned of possible underwater terrorist attacks by scuba divers that could target nuclear power plants as well. Recently intelligence sources warned that on the Fourth of July, Pennsylvania's Three Mile Island (TMI) could be the target of an Al Qaeda attack. In fact, there is concern that spent radioactive fuel could be stolen to produce a dirty bomb to be set off at nuclear power plants.
