The reasons Sen. 0bama gave in an October 30, 2007, letter he sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Environment and Public Works Committee Chair Barbara Boxer can be seen in copy of the letter (http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post_group/NVHQ/CSYB).

However, in 2005 Sen. 0bama voted twice for H.R. 2419 (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:H.R.2419:), a bill which included appropriations for the Yucca Mountain repository site (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c109:7:./temp/~c109XxiM3W:e85528:).

More on 0bama and his changing position nuclear waste can be seen in a May 15, 2007, Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial by Erin Neff, "Obama and Yucca" (http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/7509662.html).

Can someone remind me of the reasons President-elect Obama gives for 
opposing construction of the Yucca Mountain repository?
