Actually, watching ABC news yesterday evening, I was surprised how little play they gave this NPP attack scare angle -- several other types of potential terrorist targets were mentioned, most prominently large hydro dams in the western US.
( Personally, I would rather take my chance down-wind from an NPP attacked by terrorists, than downstream from a dam attacked by terrorists -- even though neither is susceptible to destruction by airliner impacts.... hmmm -- maybe we could suggest that they attack a volcano, in the hope of triggering a Mt. St. Helen's-type of eruption.... no doubt Energy Probe and other antis could convince them & the media of this - like when they told the media that France's nuke tests were causing earthquakes all around the Pacific rim....)
