DOE, Oh Dear

“There might be no time in the history of the country when it was so interesting to know what was going on inside these bland federal office buildings—because there has been no time when those things might be done ineptly, or not done at all. But if you want to know how the D.O.E. works—the problems it manages, the fears that keep its employees awake at night, the things it does you just sort of assume will continue being done—there’s no real point in being inside the D.O.E. Anyone who wants a blunt, open assessment of the risks inherent in the United States government now has to leave it to find it.” Michael Lewis with a deep (and deeply disturbing) look at exactly what the Department of Energy is supposed to do. From Vanity Fair: Why the scariest nuclear threat may be coming from inside the White House.
