Here is a link to a timely article (October 2005) on the background and
present fate of the U.S. thorium nitrate stockpile (the material at the
head of the thorium fuel cycle).

  As  far 
as I know the best hope for a fuel cycle that can't be used to produce  
nuclear weapons is the Thorium to Uranium-233 fuel cycle.  I believe
that  it was 
only India that has worked on this option in recent years.
