CBS reports that batteries produced by Eagle Picher Technologies of Joplin, Mo., for smart bombs used in major weapons have failed acceptance tests. Battery failure has occurred in smart bombs used in Afghanistan, which resulted in killing civilians, as well in the nation's nuclear arsenal. "In addition, employees charge that Eagle Picher falsified tests to cover up the bad batteries and send them to contractors," according to the contest entry summary.
