Nuclear Secrets Aren't THAT Important. Right?

The government revealed a document on Monday that contained "Sensitive" information about the location of U.S. nuclear facilities including those containing highly enriched, weapons grade uranium. The information even included the specific location of nuclear material inside the Oak Ridge facility in Tennessee.

I'm going to agree that the information revealed in this document is not seriously damaging. It reveals the locations of facilities that people already know about and getting inside the most important of them would involve a medium sized armed force (at least I hope). What does bother me about this that sensitive information of nuclear facilities is about as damn sensitive as it gets. We shouldn't have to even consider how much damage is done by revealing this information because those in charge of such information should never ever allow it to be accessed by the public.
