A major new report, co-authored by LBJ School Associate Professor Alan Kuperman, warns that dozens of reactor sites across the United States are inadequately protected from terrorist attacks that could trigger a meltdown or lead to a diversion of bomb-grade uranium. As the new report will note, the danger is far from hypothetical since the 9/11 hijackers are known to have considered flying a passenger jet into a U.S. nuclear reactor before they settled on the World Trade Center as their main terror target.
