Livermore’s most prolific weapons designer, the late physicist Seymour Sack, calls NIF “worse than useless” because it draws money and attention from the less-glamorous examination of weapons for signs of degradation and replacement of the parts that break down.

We have to build it to know what it's good for.

Wow. A 1% increase. That something to get excited about. Maybe Goldstein and Verdon should learn some social skills so they can get better friends in Washington. Or maybe the lab can hire people with better connections.

NIF doesn't operate in a vacuum. If NIF funding is cut every program at the Lab would suffer. Just be happy for 1% (just like the kind of raises we got for the last decade).

I thought the era of earmarks and porkbarrel politics was over? My mistake, but between more money for NIF, monies for facility upgrades, a new EOC, 30 year old buildings....the infrastructure for all DP labs, except Sandia in NM is old and has outlived it mission life. Unfortunately, propose anything over $2 billion, which becomes $6 billion when executed, and you might as well forget it. We live in an era of it cost too much to do what is right, if what is needed for the nation, we cannot afford it.

Wasn't Swalwell the one who was chastised by Feinstein for writing a letter of support for NIF a few years ago? The guy is an unabashed porkbarrel politician, who would fit in nicely with the Illinois corrupt Democrat regime.

Swalwell never met a tax or spending program he didn't like.

"...bringing star power to Earth,” Swalwell said.

Wasn't that Ed Moses' blatant hype? Emblazoned on everything from bumper stickers to refrigerator magnets? You LLNL managers need to feed your Congressmen more original material!

He thinks Russia is working on ICF and is going to beat us there? The LLNL managers have really messed up, or else the guy is just dumb.
