    See, education for free, and perhaps after watching this you might be smarter than the news who never wondered why this twit went to florida to sell to Iran. Florida is in the US for those educated here in america. Seriously, this genious flew the wrong direction to make two stops in a country known for massive security and surveillance, to bring samples to a so called Iranian in florida? Let us say by some miracle this guy tripped over 1000 tons of uranium that is so special it doesn't even exist as per science and was legitimately trying to sell it to Iran, how was this guy going to accomplish that when he couldn't figure out which direction Iran was from his home country? Is there any possibility this guy wasn't going to die from radiation poisoning? Does the news even think about what they are spouting anymore?

    I think the writer confused the the chemical formula for uranium oxide with an isotope number (the CF for UO is U3O8). Also, Patrick Campbell sounds like a western name, and am assuming he is someone who simply operates out of SL

    You are trying hard to make this something significant and less like the keystone cops getting lucky. The guy is an idiot, he deserves to be arrested for the attempt, but no one was ever in danger from this. It is like the DEA getting all excited because they busted a drug ring of oregano salesmen. Sorry, but you do not try to sell uranium to Iran by going to florida through NY. I am not an international supplier of uranium, but even I know that is mentally retarded. Seriously, why not just get the moron to fly straight to Gitmo? That is at least in Cuba. You may be easily impressed or looking for something to boast about which is why you want to believe this was a great bust, but whiole they were doing all this with this guy what else happened in the world with real problems?

    So far I haven't seen anyone try to make the case that this guy isn't an idiot. Maybe he thought they were discussing 'geraniums'.

    Actually I was just adding a few points for clarification. Clearly anyone offering their services through Alibaba isn't some global threat. Like you said, the guy is either a scammer or some completely inept dumb-ass

    I don't know diddly about specific types of uranium, yellow cake, etc... but isn't that stuff radioactive?? Who would be stupid enough to expose themselves to that much radioactivity for several hours? Unless, of course, he had lead lined shoes, in which case tottering like a tethered astronaut on a space walk might have been a give-away.

    This goes back to my original point. The articles on this are sensationalizing what is pretty much a load of crap. They are trying to justify all the spying and all the other problems they have created with their war on terror by bringing up a plot that supposedly involved tons of uranium that they could not even get right. For all the illegal snooping, the degrading of our rights, the billions spent on fighting this BS we have caught a scam artist who at best was going to try and rip off Iran. Not to mention the horrible people at the news just totally blew the US's efforts to get the terrorists by exposing their great and secret alibaba scheme. Now all the real terrorists will know not to use alibaba. Where are the cries of aiding the enemy and being a traitor for these news people who actually gave out specifics on a US effort to catch uranium sales and exposed our top secret undercover efforts? They make all this out to be something pretty awesome on their part when they really should be ashamed of all the crap they have pulled and the resources they wasted to catch this idiot when this is one of the few instances they can prove they even did something effective.

    Yellowcake isn't much of a radiation hazard as long as you don't inhale it or eat it.

    Gotta wonder how a moron of such epic proportion managed to get even a little uranium.
