More evidence of how great NNSA runs the program.

LANL spokesman Kevin Roark referred questions about the GAO report to the NNSA.
He was probably happy to pas that one on.

"BTW, I am retired from LANL, where I worked for a time in X-Division, which designs nuclear weapons. I assure you, they can, and probably will, end civilization as we know it."

We have been through this time and time again. There is no LLNL, there is only LANL, what happens at LANL happens at LLNL, there is no LLNL without LANL.

The logic goes as thus. There was a completely out of control arrogant cowboy science culture at LANL for the past 70 years that needed to be severely punished...therefore LLNL was put up for bid, it went to a for profit LLC, a large number of people where laid off, the lab capabilities where greatly diminished, the nation suffered and LLNL blog was created so that you could complain about the situation at LLNL. You see how this works? You can say whatever you want on this blog but your fate lies in the hands of LANL and there would never have been a LLNL blog without LANL. If something goes wrong at LANL, real, made up, make believe, or nonexistence than LLNL will pay, and pay dearly. Perception is reality and the reality is that that LANL exists but LLNL does not. SUPER VUCA!

Go home.

Seriously, pack up your bags and just leave. Set up your own blog site and take your arrogance, your crappy view of your sister lab, your rudeness as a guest to a host that took you in out kindness and leave us the hell alone - please.

I am always amazed at the paranoia on both sides, LLNL and LANL. The original post
is talking about NNSA and its incompetence; and immediately the old "we are better than you war" on both sides start:

LANL: ...but your fate lies in the hands of LANL and there would never have been a LLNL blog without LANL.

LLNL: take your arrogance, your crappy view of your sister lab....

No wonder, management and NNSA does not take us seriously; just listen to this and you feel like on the playground for 3 year old.
Competition is fine and healthy, but when it morphs into name calling, insults and
vitriol, it is only sad.

Disclaimer: I am working at LANL, but I have also worked at LLNL; in my opinion the vast majority of the people are dedicated, talented professionals, who are giving their best.

Yes of course.

"No wonder, management and NNSA does not take us seriously"

Do you seriously believe that management and NNSA does not take us seriously because of some cynical posts on this blog? NNSA does not even take itself seriously.

NNSA has no basis to be taken seriously. They are the epitome of wasteful, useless, self perpetuating government bureaucracy.

Um, I am home. Where do you post from? Your desk at work? Tell you what: if you set yourself up a blog solely related to NIF, 90% of the LLNL people here will follow, and 99% of the LANL people won't. Voila!

August 12, 2016 at 4:57 AM - You sir/madam are an excellent exception to the rule for LANL folk. If all followed your polite and respectful response I would not mind having you people here.

Sadly the vast majority of their postings ( August 11, 2016 at 7:09 AM; August 11, 2016 at 8:57 PM(??); August 12, 2016 at 9:29 AM ) are the kind that made me characterize LANL members as I did.

As per NNSA... I take that organization very seriously - as an enemy to the entire weapons complex. It's apparent mission is through neglect, inane policy, and outright hostile regulation to destroy the ability for the U.S. to manufacture, maintain, or deploy nuclear weapons. The GAO report does nothing to change that outlook.

If anybody posts about fraud, waste, or abuse, it is deleted from this blog. Lots of: it's LANL's fault; LLNL is the greatest; etc. is fine but real discussion of the problems are deleted making this a pretty useless blog. The only thing left is the 3-year olds fighting.

LANS thought they could come in an use intimidation and coercion management tactics with the staff at LANL. The butt heads and cowboys win again. Yippe ki yay!

The Cowboys are coming out of the woodwork right now at LANL puffing up and strutting around waiting for a new contract. It is going to be hilarious when the DOE nessecarilymhas to extend LANS because they don't have it together. Furthermore the next contract will be for profit and as others here have so aptly put it, nothing will change. To be clear, the Cowboys at LANL are not the scientists. They are the support and operations teams.

Scientists, engineers, and technicians have become a rapidly shrinking minority at LANL. How about LLNL?
