NNSA Establishes New Office to Lead Future of Nuclear

Hi Doug,
Most importantly, I send you my best wishes for your upcoming bike trip. Hopefully it will be an enjoyable time to forget all the BS of the past few years. Hopefully you will think about the fact that so many of us thank you for opening up the world to reality with this blog.
And something you hopefully won't think about at all during that time: Announced the day before yesterday: another bureaucratic office at NNSA to get things done (or not). Link: http://www.nnsa.doe.gov/docs/newsreleases/2006/PR_2006-06-28_NA-06-20.htm

NNSA Establishes New Office to Lead Future of Nuclear Weapons Complex


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) announced today the establishment of a new Office of Transformation to focus efforts to modernize its Cold War-era nuclear weapons complex.

“Since nuclear weapons will remain a part of the U.S. national defense for the foreseeable future, NNSA will need the scientific and manufacturing infrastructure to support them. Our goal is to have a nuclear weapons complex that is smaller, more efficient, more secure and capable of providing the tools a future president may need to respond to changing national security needs,” said Linton F. Brooks, the administrator of NNSA.
