This investigation uncovered just how easy it is to buy enough radioactive material in the former Soviet Union to make a dirty bomb. The investigation was focused on Georgia. The reporters found that radioactive materials were found in Georgia every year since the Russians left, that for $10,000 they could buy enough Cesium - 137 to make a bomb, and that security around the facilities for radioactive material is very lax. The president of Georia discussed his security concerns with the reporters.
