Oops! Feds 'Accidentally' Release 266-page Document Mapping Out U.S. Nuclear Sites

"These screw-ups happen," said one former director of central intelligence.

From the Better than Fiction department: the New York Times reports that the U.S. government has "accidentally" released a list of nuclear sites around the country -- but don't worry, everything's fine.
"The federal government mistakenly made public a 266-page report, its pages marked 'highly confidential,' that gives detailed information about hundreds of the nation's civilian nuclear sites and programs, including maps showing the precise locations of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons," the Times reported last night.
The document, which was disclosed earlier this week "in an online newsletter devoted to issues of federal secrecy," is described as containing "an exhaustive listing of the sites that make up the nation's civilian nuclear complex, which stretches coast to coast and includes nuclear reactors and highly confidential sites at weapon laboratories."
