Dismissing NNSA bosses may leave American nukes in a lurch - Business Insider
Should I be worried about this?It isn't unusual for a new president to clean house across US agencies, but neither is keeping a few crucial appointed roles filled — at least until worthy successors are named. This is especially true of the leadership of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), which safeguards America's stockpile of roughly 7,000 nuclear weapons.
But according to a Monday Gizmodo story by Ashley Feinberg, NNSA leaders Frank Klotz and Madelyn Creedon have tendered their resignations and "the Trump transition team has not asked the top two NNSA officials to stay on until they can be replaced."
The apparent and coming vacuum in NNSA leadership is the word from an unnamed "official within the Department of Energy."
