米政府が核兵器の製造法をうっかりネットで公開してしまった模様!

米国の最有力紙「ニューヨーク・タイムズ」などによると、米政府がインターネットで公開したイラクの核開発計画文書の中に、なんと核兵器の製造法が記されていた。

米政府はニューヨーク・タイムズの指摘があった直後、あわてて(意訳)当該サイトを閉鎖した。

☆U.S. Web Archive Is Said to Reveal a Nuclear Primer(米紙「ニューヨーク・タイムズ」)

Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.

Last night, the government shut down the Web site after The New York Times asked about complaints from weapons experts and arms-control officials. A spokesman for the director of national intelligence said access to the site had been suspended “pending a review to ensure its content is appropriate for public viewing.”

☆U.S. Shuts Web Site That Contained Nuclear Details(米紙「ワシントン・ポスト」)

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said yesterday that it shut down a public Web site after complaints from U.N. weapons inspectors that the site included sensitive details about constructing nuclear and chemical weapons. The documents were collected in Iraq after the March 2003 invasion but predate the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

Intelligence officials said the documents do not indicate that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when President Bush ordered U.S. troops to take over the country and depose Saddam Hussein.

Chad Kolton, spokesman for John D. Negroponte, the director of national intelligence, said the office had "suspended access" to the site pending a review of the documents. "The material currently on the Web site as well as the procedures used to post new documents will be carefully reviewed before the site becomes available again," Kolton said.
