Our national research laboratories - Los Alamos, Sandia and Lawrence Livermore - are national treasures. Their physical plants and assemblies of some of our most talented scientists, engineers and technicians cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world.
Yes, their primary directive has been military research. But technology-sharing programs have enabled their discoveries to be developed commercially for peaceful purposes. And they have been soliciting more and more contracts for nonmilitary research.
Transferring control of these facilities to the Department of Defense would end all that. And it would insert a large and unwelcome military presence into communities dedicated to comprehensive science and technology.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a five-star general, warned us against “the military-industrial complex.” Militarizing our national laboratories would be an unholy merger between these two entities.
It would be a crime to let these valuable and versatile resources disappear into the black hole of military secrecy and regimentation.
