My point was that the complaints about all of that is that most of that waste came from before we knew how to properly handle and secure it.

We were talking about nuclear power, and "Hanford" was used as a counter. Like I said, Hanford isn't a reactor. Yes, it has one there, but that reactor, which is the sort of thing that we are discussing in this thread, is not the reason to be concerned about "Hanford". The reason that Hanford is a mess has absolutely nothing to do with future nuclear development.
