Inviting Espionage: The administration is considering reviving a '90s-era nuclear scientist exchange program with China. Does no one in the White House remember how much damage the previous arrangement caused?
Of the many regrettable initiatives dreamed up by the Clinton administration, few were as perverse as the nuclear scientist exchange program. The arrangement turned out to be a gift to the Chinese, who were able to steal U.S. nuclear secrets virtually in plain sight.
Either unable or unwilling to learn from the past, the Obama administration wants to bring the program back. The Washington Times reports that "Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel B. Poneman is working on a major Obama administration initiative that would renew scientist exchanges between U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories and Chinese nuclear facilities."
The 1990s version of the exchanges yielded unprecedented espionage. How bad was it? An internal lab document obtained and reported by IBD in 1999 indicated that "during the Clinton administration, the number of Chinese nationals working" at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico had "catapulted 411%."
We're not saying every Chinese worker at the lab was a spy. But Congress found at least 13 suspected spies gained lab access without proper CIA or FBI vetting. Why open U.S. labs to scientists from a nation that had already been stealing our nuclear secrets for decades?

If this POTUS wants it to be done, then it is harmful, and he relishes in the damage that will be done.
Well, we already know that drones and helicopter tails certainly are not safe in his hands.
Why would anything else be?
I wouldn’t trust Obama with my family “Secret” recipe book much less anything else!
Is the Pope Presbyterian?
Neither would I
Does a chicken have lips?
Our secrets are as safe as Obama being a marxist muslim American hater.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAH! You’re killing me. I laugh to keep from crying.
Well, Larry Sinclair’s ‘drone’ is safe in hussein’s hands evidently. Our nukie stuff? NNNNOOOOOOO!!!
No less safe in Obama’s hands than they were in Clinton’s hands.
