Looking For Dirt

It is reported that the USA delivered $26M worth of radiation detection equipment, on Wednesday, to the Greek authorities. The equipment will be used to detect "fall out" from a dirty nuclear device.

The equipment will be positioned at all airports and seaports, as well as the Olympic venues in Athens.

It is a sad indictment of the world that we live in today, that such measures have to be taken at what is meant to be a sporting event open to the entire world.

In other security measures, the Greek security forces have been told not to wave at people during the Games.

No, don't ask, I have no idea why.
