ORNL counter-intelligence officer charged

This is no doubt due to the arrogance of scientists at LANL, LLNL and Sandia. Funny how there are no arrogant scientists at ORNL. Can someone explain this to me?

Father is charged with son in-law's death, the wife is charged with her husband's death. Heck of a Daddy - Daughter dance they throw in them thar parts.

And the headline should read FORMER counter-intelligence officer. It should be noted that he was a former FBI agent as well. Should the labs not hire former federal law enforcement officials as well?

If you are going to stir the pot of smelly subtance, be willing to lick the spoon.

So does this mean that ONRL is starting to get an culture of arrogance?

He was not "former" when the killing occurred. He is former now once he became a "problem" for ORNL.

Battelle is really efficient at throwing potential problems off the boat and watching them drown. Or holding them under if they don't.

I think you are being harsh on Battelle, perhaps they have to deal with arrogant science culture, and the problems are just to deep to be fixed, ORNL should be shut down.

Culture. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

April 2003 -The onetime head of the FBI's Chinese counterintelligence unit in San Francisco has resigned a sensitive post at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory after authorities said he acknowledged a longtime affair with an alleged Chinese double agent.

The resignation of ex-FBI supervisor William Cleveland Jr. came one day after federal agents in Los Angeles arrested a retired colleague, James J. Smith, and businesswoman Katrina Leung in an espionage-related case Wednesday.

And so it goes.....hahahaha!

The beautiful thing about culture is that you can just say it and labels everyone and everything they do and you do not have to provide specifics or fract. You can use it to condemn groups or promote groups just by invoking the word. It is very effective on the weak minded which is why it is now so powerful. Here are some examples.

Star wars fans are know for having culture of laziness and ineptitude.

The entire culture of DHS culture is that of short sighted arrogance.

UCLA has a live for today Yolo party culture.

The problem with Wisconsin is the entire "we are so much better" culture that provides the state.

The city of Chicago's culture of excellence is example for the rest of the nation to live by.
