The repeated, incorrect claim that Russia obtained ‘20 percent of our uranium’

Glenn Kessler
November 14, 20271

The 20 percent figure has long been in wide circulation. As we noted, the Fact Checker recently used it, though with caveats. But we should have looked at the actual production data and asked the NRC for an updated estimate of production capacity. Clearly, the number is woefully out of date.

Given that Uranium One’s production is only 2 percent of an already small total U.S. production — not 20 percent — the overwrought claims that Clinton “gave away” 20 percent of the U.S. nuclear supply or that Russia controls that much U.S. uranium are simply absurd.

'Inventory' and 'Production capacity' are two totally different things.  Maybe someone should fact-check the WaPo.
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

You're expecting actual logic from the leftists at the Washington.Compost?

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...
Hmmm, sounds like the WaPo is getting nervous about this, trying to downplay it.

I think it's far more than just the WaPo!  But that's just me!

It also diverts from the real issue here which is selling uranium to Russia in exchange for cash to the Clintons.  If they sold a gram of U238 ore to Russia and profited off of it personally, then they should go to prison.  End of story.

Didn't see a WaPo fact check on that inconvenient truth.
