LACEY TOWNSHIP - An audit released by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says that nuclear plants in New Jersey and the rest of the country need a significant increase in security to protect the facilities from terrorists. A South Jersey plant is one plant where officials say employee screening was insufficient. For more than a year, Sharif Mobely worked at Salem and Hope Nuclear Power Plants in South Jersey. For most of that time, he had ties to al-Qaida. A spokesman for PSE&G, which operates the plants, says the company "already addressed many of the recommendations made in (the) report." It is not the first time questions have been raised about the security of nuclear plants in the Garden State. Shortly after 9/11, Kane in Your Corner investigated security at the Oyster Creek Nuclear Plant in Lacey Township. Kane in Your Corner put a camera in an unmarked unauthorized vehicle and drove right up to the reactor core. Security at the plant has improved, but some groups that have researched nuclear plant security statewide say there's still a lot more work that needs to be done.
