More on LANS extension

LANS gets to stay through September 2018. Presumably this means the NNSA thinks that they can't manage the transition in a mere 2 years and that they think they can oversee LANS adequately to ensure that they do something like a passably good job. Who knew?

Sad but what is happening with LLNL? Do they get to keep their Bechtel parasites still longer?

This is very insulting, a better analogy would be that Bechtel is vulture cleaning up the corpse. Someone has to do and it cleans the earth.

If NNSA predicts having LANS around until Sept 2018 at Los Alamos then that means LANS/Bechtel will probably be running the show until at least the fall of 2020. You've got to add in the typical federal government "time lags" to these forecasts.

On second thought, a 2020 transition may also be too optimistic and perhaps 2022 is a more realistic date. That would place LANL's LLC transition during the middle of the second term of a Donald Trump administration.

Of course, if Hillary wins there will be no need to even go through the motions of the LLC changeover. She'll simply move to shutdown Los Alamos and and transfer any of the remaining work that's important and profitable over to California, a loyal true-blue Hillary state.
