Description

Nuclear policy specialist James Doyle received clearance from Los Alamos to publish an article questioning the doctrine of nuclear deterrence in an international journal, but after it appeared a House Armed Services Committee staffer complained about it, and Los Alamos decided the article contained national security secrets. As a result, Doyle was stripped of his security clearances and eventually fired when the Center for Public Integrity inquired about his employment dispute. While the government would not say what part of Doyle's article contained national security secrets, experts told the Center it was most likely a reference to Israel's possession of nuclear weapons - a “secret” hardly worth its name.
