You'd think someone would have noticed the mushroom clouds...
According to a report on the BBC website
a typo on a Congressional website had Sudan fearing that the United States had conducted nuclear tests in their country, rather than at Sedan Crater
in the Nevada Test Site
. Personally I love the following quotes of Sudanese Foreign Minister Mostafa Osman Ismail on being told it was simple typo and the United States hadn't actually tested nuclear weapons in Sudan:
"There is nothing that makes us so far doubt the explanations we have
received from the US Administration...[o]ur investigations, which are already
under way, will continue until we get to the bottom of this matter"
FM: "Excuse me Mr. Resident of Sudan"
RoS: "Yeah Mr. Foreign Minister?"
FM: "You remember anyone blowing a lot of stuff up around here back in the '60's? Maybe a nuclear bomb or two?"
A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest...
...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.
