Incoherence and "change" follow.


I have not much comment other than that he will deny funds knowing that the weapons are becoming unstable which means dangerous to those that maintain and work among the devices, is my guess.

Just a guess.

Ugh. That is a restrained guess, the full guess would sound more dire.

Here's an interesting comment, it seems to echo a matter noticed here.

Check "In From the Cold" whenever you get a chance, he is well worth the visit.

On second thought, here is a previous post in entirety. On the matter of employment policy, he seems to be saying "Hit us!! I don't know what I will do either! [even though this is ostensibly a clarifying policy matter and even though he asserts that he is the master-arbiter of hope-n-change who is shifting and clarifying at break-neck hope speed while seeming to insist that he is the captain of un-ambiguation! Thank God for his lackey's, the fourth estate!]"

What a sack this douche is:

Don't Worry

I bet the Chinese have a copy of the recipe. We would just need to steal it back. That raises some unfortunate doubts. There is more over at armscontrolwonk. (Aerogels have been mentioned here before) From Slashdot via Instapundit:

"The US and the UK are trying to refurbish the aging W76 warheads that tip Trident missiles to prolong their life and ensure they are safe and reliable but plans have been put on hold because US scientists have forgotten how to manufacture a mysterious but very hazardous component of the warhead codenamed Fogbank. 'NNSA had lost knowledge of how to manufacture the material because it had kept few records of the process when the material was made in the 1980s, and almost all staff with expertise on production had retired or left the agency,' says the report by a US congressional committee. Fogbank is thought by some weapons experts to be a foam used between the fission and fusion stages of the thermonuclear bomb on the Trident Missile and US officials say that manufacturing Fogbank requires a solvent cleaning agent which is 'extremely flammable' and 'explosive,' and that the process involves dealing with 'toxic materials' hazardous to workers. 'This is like James Bond destroying his instructions as soon as he has read them,' says John Ainslie, the co-ordinator of the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, adding that 'perhaps the plans for making Fogbank were so secret that no copies were kept.' Thomas D'Agostino, administrator or the US National Nuclear Security Administration, told a congressional committee that the administration was spending 'a lot of money' trying to make 'Fogbank' at Y-12, but 'we're not out of the woods yet.'"

via acw a mention of fogbank by an individual at a public meeting who worked on it. He mentions some difficulties and I did not know this about our explosives manufacturing and China:

"On the plastics, that are used to bind, say,
the TATB together, that's no longer made. Nobody
makes it. And the TATB itself, the precursor that you
need to make that explosive molecule can't be
manufactured in this country because of environmental
problems. You have to get -- you have to get the raw
material from China these days. How would that work

Why do you listen to NPR?

Pay close attention to your enemy.

Especially when they parade around in plain site and pretend to be otherwise.

Watch CBA, NBC & ABC then! (Not to mention CNN or MSNBC)

NPR = moral equivalency, leftist bile, and socialist propaganda disguised as news.
