U.S. unveils report on problems at Hanford

U.S. unveils report on problems at Hanford

Amid pressure from Washington state political leaders, the U.S. Department
of Energy on Tuesday released a closely held report that is critical of
some work at a plant being built to clean up some of the worst
contamination at Hanford's former nuclear-weapons factories.

But in the version released to the public, the department blacked out
portions related to criticism of spending by Bechtel National, the
contractor building the plant, and to contract disputes between the
department and Bechtel, according to a complete copy of the report
previously leaked to The Seattle Times.
