[Machine translation] Arte broadcasts Tuesday night a chilling investigation by Laure Noualhat and Eric Guéret on the risk of an attack on nuclear power plants. The film, which you can see in exclusivity on liberation.fr, points out security flaws which surface under the seal of the secret defense. The protection of nuclear facilities in the face of the terrorist risk is a subject too serious to be left to EDF: it is the angle of attack of a documentary seizing appropriately diffused tonight on Arte, in the middle of campaign of Greenpeace on the subject. With Nuclear Security, the big lie, journalists Eric Gueret and Laure Noualhat (ex-Liberation) wanted to answer the question that is really scary: are we safe from a nuclear attack whose radioactive consequences would be worse than Chernobyl and Fukushima? Recently pointed out by Greenpeace via an alarmist report and two successful intrusions on the Cattenom (Moselle) and Cruas (Ardèche) power plants, the “security flaws” at the nuclear sites have been the subject of two years of investigation. A rigorous and chilling work, intelligently distant from the debate “for or against the nuclear”, and all the more remarkable that it encountered a double stumbling block: the wall of the secret defense which it was necessary to choke, all taking care not to give a “manual” of nuclear terror.
