DIRTY BOMBS, AND MORE FROM CRS

A substantial new report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) considers the potential threat posed by radiological dispersal devices or "dirty bombs." At the direction of Congress, the CRS does not make its publications directly available to the public. The "dirty bomb" report, as well as a shorter, abridged version of the report, and the other new reports listed below were obtained by Secrecy News.
