From press release (PDF; 102 KB):

Leaders of groups representing communities downwind and downstream from U.S. nuclear weapons facilities today issued a “Radioactive Report Card” assigning low grades to the Bush Administration’s Department of Energy (DOE) bomb production and cleanup programs.

The Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) gave DOE an “F” in “Budget Priorities” and a “D” for “Environmental Compliance.” ANA did, however, award DOE a B+ for “Public Relations Rhetoric” commenting that “High-sounding promises about health, safety, environment and national security are not being fulfilled.”

Each ANA grade came with a recommendation for “improvement needed” by DOE, such as “Tell the truth. Obey the law. Deal honestly and openly with the public.”
