‘Warmers’ Offered Chavez Nuclear Secrets

From a disappointed (that they were caught) Associated Press:

Couple charged in nuclear weapons secrets case

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A scientist and his wife who both once worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory were arrested Friday after an FBI sting operation and charged with offering to help develop a nuclear weapon for Venezuela.

They were accused of dealing with an FBI undercover agent posing as a Venezuelan agent, but the government did not allege that Venezuela or anyone working for it sought U.S. secrets.

We wouldn’t want to annoy Mr. Chavez.

Pedro Leonardo Mascheroni, 75, and Marjorie Roxby Mascheroni, 67, a U.S. citizen, were arrested Friday, a day after they were indicted…

So only Ms. Mascheroni was a US citizen, but Mr. Mascheroni was not? So what was he doing working at Los Alamos?

According to the 22-count indictment, Mascheroni told the undercover agent he could help Venezuela develop a nuclear bomb within 10 years and that Venezuela would use a secret, underground nuclear reactor to produce and enrich plutonium, and an open, aboveground reactor to produce nuclear energy…

[Mascheroni] told AP last year he was motivated by his belief in cleaner, less expensive and more reliable nuclear weapons and power. He began approaching other countries after his ideas were rejected by the lab and, later, congressional staffers

Yes, Mr. Mascheroni was just trying to wean Venezuela off of evil oil.

The criminal charges allege Mascheroni delivered to a post office box in November 2008 a disk with a coded 132-page document on it that contained “restricted data” related to nuclear weapons. Written by Mascheroni and edited by his wife, the document was entitled “A Deterrence Program for Venezuela” and laid out Mascheroni’s nuclear weapons development program for Venezuela.

You see, “A Deterrence Program for Venezuela” was a reference to deterring the world from using oil. It has nothing to do with ‘deterring’ the United States.

Mascheroni stated the information he was providing was worth millions of dollars, and that his fee for producing the document was $793,000, the indictment alleges.

Earlier in the investigation, Mascheroni allegedly asked the FBI agent about obtaining Venezuelan citizenship

Why it’s almost as if they were afraid of prosecution for their noble deeds.

(Thanks to Confucius for the heads up.)

      There’s more.

      In 1997, alleged traitor Pedro Mascheroni donated $1,000 to Eric Peter Serna, Esq. (D) in his bid for New Mexico’s 3rd District Seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Serna lost.

      http://www.fec.gov/finance/disclosure/disclosure_data_search.shtml

      In turn, Eric Serna, Esq. is a lawyer and advisory board member to The GreenBridge Council which specializes in environmental management systems and long-term sustainability. He was also a Clinton appointee to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and former National Chairman of the Board to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

    Al Toad. Once again influencing the brain dead among us.

    “his belief in cleaner, less expensive and more reliable nuclear weapons…”

    I can see the ad: low carbon immolation. Environmentally friendly vaporization process. Minimal blast radius. Reduce a million carbon footprints by eliminating them altogether.

    Seriously, what was this traitor thinking?
    Surely he doesn’t believe a little dictator on a hotbed of oil needs a nuclear bomb?

    The sad thing is that instead of being executed like the Rosenbergs, these two will probably be portrayed as “victims” and given amnesty for their treason. Nerobama will probably give them a multi-million dollar grant to teach the Venezualans how to build a bomb to use against us. 50:1 odds these dopes never see prison.

    Hell…hand basket. Will we hear a condemnation of the traitors from the White House?
