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.
Oh, hussein learned from the past. This is intentional. Why is hussein obama not in prison for treason? Seriously, why isn't he?
Of course not.........
If you have to ask, then the ? answers itself
Incorrect on both counts. They are able and willing to learn from the past. They saw how much damage it did and want to repeat the damage.
No. Moreover, if Obama doesn’t win again, he may well see to it a nuke blows on shore in US. That’ll teach us a lesson, just like last time we were attacked on shore / sardonic. If there is any truth to the “truthers” it’s more likely the Demoncrats allowed it.
Nothing is safe in President Trainwreck’s hands. He has the reverse Midas touch.
It seemed clear that the Clintons got campaign money from the Chinese in exchange for satellite/missile intel (LORAL et al). What has been the source of The Won’s $1B+ warchest? Since it is hidden from FEC scrutiny (no public funds and exempt from audit), we’ll never know if secrets were sold for campaign contributions a la the 1st black President.
They obviously don’t understand that we must destroy this country at all costs and if Obama can’t get re-elected, well then this will make sure the country goes down regardless of who is President. Got it.
Just the fact that the question needs to be asked, gives you the answer.
that's what I was going to post...
Bill Richardson is tasked by Bill Clinton to smear Notra Trulock.
A greasy smear by a greaseball.
The Clinton of the 1995 Loral-Hughes Schwartz-Armstrong data leak which the May 1997 DOD report said "damaged national security".
Gee but would Barry the Fairy really compromise the America he loves with her enemy the ChiComs.
This is what happens when a communist traitor mole is elected POTUS.
What else would be expected?
Bbbut, won’t Ayatollah 0bama give us “peace, land and bread”.
Money flowing from an offshore source to a offshore bank is untraceable to onshow law enforcement. Can you just imagine all the creative ways that foreign aid money can be skimmed off the time and "laundered"?
I think they already have the secrets, they just want some experienced scientists and engineers to help on the applications.
brought this to the attention of my congress critter. they couldn’t care less
a few years ago, people would call this high treason. if THIS isn’t treason, I’d hate to imagine what it would take.
if you haven’t received that ‘oh crap’ feeling yet... image higher yield in a smaller package... flown into an American city by a newly acquired stealth drone
Nothing is safe in Obama’s hands.
China will help make sure that, “America’s chickenz will be comin’ home to roost!”
Kinda late to bring this matter up, isn’t it?
That’s why he must be vetted in 2012 before he is allowed to run the 2nd time.
Who is Obama and where is he from?
NO. More emphasis: Hell, NO!
It us certain the Gorelick Memo made discovery of plots before their execution more problemmatical. Would those who make their omlettes by breaking 'a few eggs' go so far as to sacrifice a few Americans to further their own agendae? ...make the opposition seem incompetent? ...enact laws which could be used against Americans later?
'Fast and Furious' says yes, they would.
While that seems tinfoil hat stuff, any more, reality is getting pretty far under the old Reynolds Wrap.
The more outrageous the plot seems, the more easily it is dismissed as "Conspiracy Theory" or 'kookiness'.
But Joe McCarthy was right, and the WTC 7 collapse still looks a lot like an implosion job to me.
BTW, that isn't saying Bush did anything, the terrorists had likely been plotting for longer than he was in office, and he had a host of entrenched holdovers in agencies everywhere.
Kind of like those destructive yet ubiquitious "unintended consequences" of [fill in compassionate liberal program here]. Just because the damage was unforeseen by some/most, doesn't mean it was unintended. Look at the WOD... some think it is a failure, but it is actually quite a success. TSA is another success story from the pit of hell.
Billy boy was able to receive substantial contributions from the chi coms for giving them our nuke secrets like how to MIRV nuke rockets.
Come on now what’s more important? Priorities now ya know...
Our secrets aren’t safe with any dim president.
From a secular aspect, dims treat World Peace exactly as they treat society.
Everyone should have equal. Equal powers will live in peace.
The rich (technologically superior) should give to the poor (technologically inferior).
Clinton did it with missile technology. MIRV technology to China in particular. With a little money changing hands no doubt.
Add religious conviction to that and we’re in real trouble.
NO, Next Question
All the above relies on trust, but if few of the have-nots are trustworthy, we're committing a suicide of sorts by arming our enemies.
America is one of the few who've proven to be trustworthy. Yes, we used the bomb. Once....to save millions. We've fought all over the globe but never to enrich ourselves. We've fought to free more Muslims around the world than anyone else. All we've asked, as Colin Powell once said, is enough ground to bury our dead. We've projected our integrity onto peoples that don't deserve it. Simply take a look at the stone age mentality of much of the middle east, or the deceitful intentions and actions of the Chinese. It won't end well, for us, at least.
It's becoming clearer that the world sorely misses our role as sheriff.
