OIG: 6,400 Foreigners Had Access to Nuclear Lab’s Restricted Areas

As many as 6,400 foreign visitors from China, India, Egypt, Pakistan, and other countries were allowed “unaccompanied access to numerous buildings” at a nuclear lab in Tennessee that is “the nation’s central repository for bomb-grade uranium” and is currently working on a $10 billion project to refurbish hundreds of aging B61 “bunker buster” bombs
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) also conducts sensitive research on drones and early warning systems to detect chemical and biological warfare, according to an Office of Inspector General report released last month.
