Bechtel was never worth a damn

UC is a far cry from it's former glory. Bechtel was never worth a damn. Given that, I'm sure the NNSA will find new and creative ways to encumber scientists with additional Government bureaucracy while putting inept Beltway bandits in charge of the US nuclear weapons enterprise.

The real problem is NNSA. They are incompetent customers.

NNSA IS a problem. UC's poor quality managers too. Bechtel, they are incompetent but they're only a minor player. Blaming Bechtel is like blaming a hangnail for your mental illness.

The problems with LANL are overwhelmingly those derived from the enduringly incompetent buffoons that populate the UC management ranks. In fact there are some failures where Bechtel gets minor blame, but in those instances the company acted swiftly to remove and replace the managers.
