The NUMEC Cover-up: The Diversion of U.S. Weapons Grade Uranium from NUMEC to Israel

IREMP | February 11, 2013

On January 31, 2013 the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy hosted a public education event just north of Apollo Pennsylvania. Author Grant F. Smith discussed key findings from his 2012 book, “Divert! NUMEC, Zalman Shapiro, and the Diversion of US Weapons-Grade Uranium into the Israeli Nuclear Weapons Program” at the Parks Township Volunteer Fire Hall.

Smith’s talk covered the corporate histories of NUMEC and Apollo Industries, how regulators dealt with the plant’s massive losses of bomb-grade nuclear material, the FBI’s investigation of NUMEC’s joint venture with a front for Israel’s nuclear weapons program, and the ongoing clandestine interactions of NUMEC executives with Israeli intelligence and covert nuclear weapons program operatives.

Smith also unveiled a major new effort to declassify all remaining CIA, NSA, Justice Department and National Security Council files revealing how American presidents quietly grappled with NUMEC as a proliferation and safeguards issue from the LBJ to the Carter administrations.

  1. This society lurches from one scandal to the next. There appears to be a total lack of governance. I can’t say a collapse because it appears that there was never a government of, by and for the people. I would not even describe it as corrupt because to say so one would have to assume that the institutions constructed are for the benefit of the people but are being made dysfunctional by unethical individuals. Instead, what you have is a group of plutocrats and oligarchs who have worked relentlessly to ensure that thy have a country from which they can enrich themselves and their generations for an eternity and to hell with who stands in their way of achieving their goals of global wealth accumulation.

    • ribeekah, that’s a very good point about corruption. How could you possibly corrupt a kleptocracy.
