CONCORD, N.H. — A Pennsylvania congressman who is writing a book about an Iranian plot to conduct an attack on the United States says a terrorist group in that country is planning to attack New Hampshire’s Seabrook nuclear plant.
But state and federal officials are playing down the comments from Delaware County Republican Curt Weldon, reported this week in The New York Sun. They say they know of no specific threat against Seabrook.
“There is always that general possibility (of a terrorist attack on the Seabrook reactor),” said Jim Van Dongen, state Emergency Management spokesman, “but we haven’t received any information that it’s going to happen tomorrow.”
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said no particular sites have been threatened.
“As we have said before — and it continues to be the case — there has been no credible threat against a specific nuclear power plant,” NRC spokeswoman Sue Gagner said. “We are in regular contact with intelligence and other federal officials on such matters.”
A message seeking comment was left Friday morning with Weldon’s press secretary in Washington.
Weldon, the vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, told The Sun that a source with high-level Iranian government contacts had told him a terrorist group in Iran plans to hijack Canadian airliners and crash them into an American reactor.
