Letter: One situation that should never happen


To the editor:

I have a question, and I am hoping that someone can enlighten me: Why in the world would any American politician or government employee or public servant in any capacity, whether elected or appointed, ever, ever, ever allow the sale or transfer of American uranium assets to anyone for any reason?

Especially a foreign government and especially Russia or anyone even remotely associated with Russia. Can anyone tell me when it would be a good idea to allow American uranium to be separated from American control? 

As far as I can see, allowing America's rare earth, most especially uranium, to ever be transferred or sold is one situation that should never, ever, ever happen...ever.
