The Nuclear Olympics

I understand that the US Secretary of Energy, Spencer Abraham, has given hand held radiological detection equipment to Greek officials; to help with improving security for the forthcoming Olympic Games, being held in Athens.

Additionally, the US are also providing assistance with regard to protecting against the theft of radioactive materials located within Greece; that could be used for terrorist purposes during the Olympic Games. They are also implementing security upgrades at the Demokritos research reactor.

How reassuring for the athletes and the spectators!
