On Hawaii’s Big Island, U-S Air Force planes are dropping unarmed bombs the size of a small automobile.The first fear was of a bomb missing its target and hitting a school or hospital.But now, as we reported yesterday on KBOO News, the army base where the practice bombs are being dropped has been discovered to be contaminated with depleted uranium.
