“When an 82-year-old pacifist nun gets to the inner sanctum of our weapons complex, you cannot say `Job well done.' She's in the audience. Would you please stand up, ma'am? We want thank you for pointing out some of the problems in our security.”

– Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, at a House hearing Thursday into the security of the nation’s nuclear-weapons sites. He was introducing Sister Megan Rice, a Catholic nun of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, who broke into the new, heavily-guarded Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility at the Oak Ridge nuclear facility in Tennessee, on July 28.

Yea, and our government is worried about the other countries that have nuclear materials.

Once again our own people show that we need to look at our own problems FIRST,

before telling anyone else their problems.

Hey while your at it, spen the billions that you would give other countries, HERE FIRST!

If Sister Rice had been slammed face first into the ground tasered and cuffed the outrage would have been even worse. You just can't win. I hope the good sister gets some jail time because it's very clear she wants public martyrdom and publicity for her cause.

She didn't get anywhere near nuclear material, but getting through the fences is cause enough to be highly embarrassing to the security at the facility.
