A group of Republicans are demanding to know why and how 162 of our top U.S. Nuclear Weapons Lab scientists ended up going to work in China.
Last Wednesday, a group led by U.S. Congressman Mike Waltz (R-FL) sent a letter to the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico demanding that they explain how so many of its weapons scientists went to work for America’s biggest enemy.
The Republicans were alerted to the situation by a recent report.
Per the Daily Wire:
Strider Technologies, Inc. issued the report, titled “The Los Alamos Club,” asserting that the scientists who had worked at the lab over a period of over 30 years had later returned to China to support the Chinese Communist Party.
“The Chinese Communist Party has been stealing our research and technology for decades through its foreign talents programs and it’s critical to our national security that we put an immediate stop to their espionage efforts,” Waltz wrote to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Arati Prabhakar.
“Over the years, we have seen numerous examples of the CCP practicing this tactic at our institutions of higher education through their Thousand Talents Program and their Youth Thousand Talents Program,” he continued. “These programs are part of the CCP’s overarching Military-Civil Fusion (MCF) national strategy. Under the MCF, the CCP targets seemingly innocuous key civilian technologies, acquires them illicitly, and exploits the ‘dual-use’ potential of these technologies to build up their military capabilities.”
“’The Los Alamos Club’ confirms the concerns surrounding malign talent recruitment programs, clearly demonstrating that the CCP’s had been successful at stealing and capitalizing on our research and development,” Waltz said in his letter. “As a result, these malign talent recruitment programs have now resulted in a tangible national security threat to the United States.”
Once again, we see that our government is actually a material enemy to the American people.Commentary
