It still requires conversion to uranium hexafluoride (UF6) for enrichment - a very intricate, time-consuming, an extreme technical challenge, and expensive process. With enough effort, enriching to ~4% will fuel a power reactor. Iraq had n...

No big secret here. US Army led the clean up of Tuwaitha. The place was very crapped up. Locals scavenged the reactor facility for metal before any US Forces got there and scattered the uranium all over the place. We took out alot of fairly large sources too, that was a US Army/DOE joint mission. I'...
