Spotlight on Los Alamos: Scientist practices the social gospel

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

A few years ago, Carl Newton was one of a handful of people from Los Alamos who publicly defended Wen Ho Lee, a neighbor whose children Newton coached in soccer.“I had a feeling he was being railroaded,” said Newton, who wrote letters to the Monitor, gave an interview on National Public Radio and was the local contact for the Wen Ho Lee defense fund.“There may have been reasons for the laboratory to be upset with him, but there was no reason to charge him with espionage,” he said, recalling Judge James Parker’s excoriating rebuke to the government on Sept. 13, 2000, for Lee’s nine months of incarceration that included “demeaning and unnecessarily punitive conditions.”Although Newton said he never felt ostracized by the community for his position, he was afraid at the time that his phone was being tapped.
