DOE finds problems with missile program

The report lists lots of problems and not much is offered to address them. Maybe it is time to move the nuclear weapons mission out of DOE?

Under most circamstances that would seem reasonable however where wold you move it to DOD? As incredible as that sounds that would be even worse as DOD is even more incompetent that DOE. DOE still gets some stuff done, DOD, nope, nada billions and billions and billions for stuff that is guaranteed not to work.

Who ran the labs before DOE?

First sentence of the story calls it the "B-61 nuclear missile." No need to read further.

To 1:14: that's what I did when I saw that.

Remember that the NNSA was created because DOE was not, in the eyes of congress, doing a good job of oversight. So the entire meaning of existence for the NNSA is "Thou shalt obey". A lack of a clear mission brought on by a freeze of testing and that no new designs are allowed has given the overlords more time to be more anal. Certainly missteps such as NIF, CMMR, Nuns running rampant at Y12 et al have allowed more rope in which to fashion hanging nooses. Back in the day of the AEC it was a far more collaborative affair, but we had critical missions to accomplish. To me, NNSA stands for the Not Necessarily Smart Administraiton.

NNSA, "Necessitated Neglect and Synchronous Sycophancy "

NNSA has become an agency to destroy the NWC. Look at their behavior. Everything is a problem. They spend money on studying problems not finding solutions and their solutions are? Hire more problem finders not technical experts to solve problems.
