A friend and I have noticed a syndrome that we call ‘The Barn Door Syndrome’ as in, closing the barn door after the cow got out. We identified it in Putin’s invasions, in the Michael Brown shooting, the Ebola threat, and now, the Sony hacking that one reporter said reminded him of installing stronger doors on cockpits aft 911. As soon as some official says we have nothing to worry about, and, it can’t happened here, then, it is going to happen – for sure! We are then entreated to a week of news where the barn door is examined and reinforced, but, what happened to the cow? The cow is standing at the next barn door that is about to be left open – breached!
This astute friend made this terrifying deduction, being, they shot one of the hostages – Sony!
“Are other companies now paying the ransom – in secret?”
Above is a photograph of the Lucus Heights nuclear power plant with a steel net around it. The other photo shows Greenpeace unfurling a banner after they raided this plant – with ease! The theory I ran past my Congressman, Peter DeFazio, was that the Bush Administration hushed up the threats to nuclear plants by Al Qaeda, because no sooner did W take office, then he had a secret meeting to discuss the building of new nuclear plants all over America and the world. Enron would be in charge of this huge money-making deal. Thatcher and her Deregulators were on board.
Bush was hand-picked by big business. When Bin Laden hit our Trade Towers, many folks asked about the safety of our nuclear plants, but that talk was oppressed. To keep reporters away from nuclear plants. a lie was invented, being Saddam had nuclear weapons. From this lie, ISIS was – hatched!
Here is article that says North Korea sent commandos to blow up nuclear plants in America.
The DIA report, dated Sept. 13, 2004, reveals that five units of covert commandos were trained for the attacks inside the country.
According to the report, the “Reconnaissance Bureau, North Korea, had agents in place to attack American nuclear power plants.”
The document states that the North Korean Ministry of People’s Armed Forces, the ministry in charge of the military, “established five liaison offices in the early 1990s, to train and infiltrate operatives into the United States to attack nuclear power plants and major cities in case of hostilities.”
Reconnaissance Bureau commandos have undertaken terrorist operations in the past in South Korea and other locations.
But the DIA report is the first intelligence document indicating North Korea had planned attacks inside the United States and dispatched agents for the operations.
Disclosure of the report, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, comes amid threats by presumed North Korean agents to conduct September 11-style terrorist attacks against U.S. movie theaters.
The threats coincided with efforts by North Korea to prevent the showing Dec. 25 of the Sony Pictures film “The Interview,” a comedy involving a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The U.S. government determined that the massive hack targeting against Sony, which stole an estimated 100 terabytes of data including unreleased films, has been determined to be the work of North Korean hackers or those working for the regime of Kim Jong Un.
The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States show that the most wildly imaginative incident is possible, ARPANSA CEo Dr John Loy told a Senate inquiry. “And of course it is incumbent on me, as a safety regulator, to think about that [and] to think about the implications of it. We certainly looked at what might be the consequences of crashing an aircraft into the facility.”
Loy argued that if a terrorist attack penetrated the reactor’s shielding, exposing its nuclear core, “there would be a buoyancy because of the fire and the radiation distribution would go higher into the atmosphere than in an accident, and that you might expect some radioactive contamination at a distance further from the reactor than in the case of an accident”.
Loy detailed government sensitivity about the threat, plus the possible misuse by terrorists of any official radiation data, to a Senate community affairs estimates hearing in June. ARPANSA, ASIO and bureaucrats involved in the “children overboard affair” have joined forces to prevent the public release of the radiation consequences analysis.
“At one end, you can characterise a report like that as a description of how to go about the sabotage of an installation and a suggestion on how to produce maximum consequences,” Loy said. “If you go to the extreme of assuming everything away – nothing works and the whole inventory is released and you get an absolute extreme case – the value of advising the public of that seems to me to be pretty limited.”
Bureaucrat Jane Halton, who had a key role in the children overboard affair, told the Senate inquiry: “I do not think that [the radiation consequences analysis] has a value in public discussion … My view is that, in the present security environment, releasing that information would not be of assistance to the public.”
The local government custodian in and around Lucas Heights, Sutherland Shire Council, has confirmed that the principal player in the children overboard affair, then-cabinet secretary Max Moore-Wilton, has also played a key role in frustrating the community’s “right to know” charter concerning the reactor’s operations.
“Our extensive freedom of information applications concerning Lucas Heights were blocked by Moore-Wilton with what are kn ˇown as conclusive certificates, generally on the grounds that the material we sought was ultimately contained in cabinet documents,” said Dr Gary Smith, the council’s principal science officer and a member of the federal government’s Nuclear Safety Committee.
Loy has confirmed that, in a revised security plan developed by federal security agencies in conjunction with ARPANSA and the operator of the reactor, the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, about $18m is being spent over four years on increased security at the Lucas Heights site.
But in the face of a terrorist threat, ANSTO continues to operate with what was described in a Senate report as “a culture of secrecy so embedded that it has lost sight of its responsibility to be accountable to parliament”.
Loy confirms that it is whistleblower John Mulcair, a former ANSTO employee, who has been alerting ARPANSA and the federal government over the operator’s continuing secretive modus operandi, continuing accidents involving Lucas Heights staff, and serious shortcomings in the construction of a replacement nuclear reactor on the site.

At 7.19am Monday 17 December 2001 the perimeter fence of the Lucas Heights Science and Technology Centre was breached by members of Greenpeace. The intruders identified themselves as “demonstrators”. Notwithstanding the low level of threat, as assessed by the Australian Protective Services, their whereabouts was monitored.
Relevant buildings have defence in-depth and these systems were not breached. The NSW Police attended as part of standard operating procedures.
This top-secret intelligence was passed to the US within days of the terror attacks on New York and Washington.
Senior intelligence sources told The Weekend Australian yesterday that information about activities of bin Laden’s associates in Australia was uncovered during intensive investigations shortly before the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
“Our investigations improved our knowledge and threw up a few things we weren’t aware of,” one official said.
Although it gave no hint of the recent US terror attacks, the information gleaned by ASIO and other agencies has played a key role in helping US authorities put together the jigsaw of bin Laden’s global network.
The official confirmed that ASIO was investigating a number of individuals in Australia suspected of having links with bin Laden or his terrorist groups.
The news came as John Howard said yesterday Australia would do what it could to freeze the finances of suspected terrorists.
“The Government will direct the Reserve Bank to use the banking foreign exchange regulations to stop any payments in Australia by or to the 27 terrorist organisations identified by the United States President in his executive order,” he said.
The move builds on existing sanctions against the Taliban regime in place since December 1999.
The US terror attacks have also caused a shake-up within ASIO and almost the full resources of the domestic spy agency are now being directed at tracking down terrorist threats within Australia.
Officials said the postponement of CHOGM would further free up resources to target potential terrorists.
The Australian last week revealed telephone records that showed the extremist Muslim group that bombed the World Trade Centre in 1993 had made calls to Australian homes, which police believed may have been terrorist safe havens.
October 9, 2001
State and federal police were on full alert following a bomb threat at Australia’s only nuclear reactor in Sydney’s south overnight.
Australian Protective Services and NSW police conducted a full search of the Lucas Heights facility after a threat was made about 10pm, Sergeant Jim McGrath of Sutherland police said.
Channel Ten received an anonymous call about 10pm which was diverted to its Brisbane office.
“There was a veiled threat the reactor was going to go up,” Sgt McGrath told AAP.
The grounds of the Commonwealth facility were searched but no devices found.
Only a skeleton staff were at the reactor at the time and they were not evacuated, Sgt McGrath said.
“We’ve always patrolled it but naturally because of what’s happening, we’ve stepped up our patrols,” he said.
Sutherland Council has long been campaigning to have the nuclear reactor shut down and for plans to build a second reactor there to be shelved because of safety concerns.
The threat comes just 24 hours after the US and Britain launched military action in Afghanistan with the full backing of the Australian government.
