US accidentally posts nuclear secrets

The US federal government mistakenly posted on the Internet a 266-page report -- with pages marked “highly confidential” -- setting out details on hundreds of the nation’s civilian nuclear sites and programs, including maps showing the precise locations of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons.

After inquiries from The New York Times, the document was withdrawn from the Government Printing Office Web site.
