Congressman wants answers after two nuclear ingredients go missing

Congressman Joaquin Castro is demanding answers from the energy department after a public interest group reported two ingredients of nuclear weapons were reported 'missing' in San Antonio 14 months ago.

Castro is asking Energy Secretary Rick Perry why the missing Plutonium and Cesium were not reported to the public, or to Congress, until The Center for Public Intergrity discovered if in Energy Departmen records.  Apparently two employees of The Idaho National Laboratory were carrying the materials when their vehicle was broken into in the parking lot of a Marriott on Loop 410 in March of 2017. Castro also wants Perry to come clean about any other missing Nuclear bomb components that may not have been reported.
