NNSA's Kansas City Plant Disposition (and a little on the NSA)

The Bannister Federal Complex Community Advisory Panel, or CAP, met at the General Services Administration offices at the Bannister site on June 13, 2013.  Tell Somebody was there and on the June 18 edition of the show we heard some audio from the meeting, and a good bit of information on beryllium, one of at least 898 toxic substances identified as having been used in the production of parts for nuclear weapons at the soon to be abandoned Kansas City Plant currently run for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) by Honeywell.

All this came came after a quick excursion into the NSA whistleblower controversy.
