On Breaching Etiquette
by Billy Cox

Years ago, back when the SDI missile defense program was shiny
and new, nuclear physicist Edward Teller told an audience of old
soldiers at an American Legion convention in Louisville how he
marveled at President Reagan's optimism over the viability of
"Star Wars.=94 Teller made it sound like Reagan himself was the
original SDI cheerleader when, actually, the reverse was true.

As the "father of the hydrogen bomb", Teller had unfettered
access to the White House in the '80s and eagerly lobbied Reagan
to build a space-based missile shield. Under the Teller senario,
SDI would employ, among other things, satellite-ready X-ray
laser weapons to blast incoming Soviet ICBMs. But as early as
1983, Teller was telling Reagan's science advisors the X-ray
laser project was ready to enter the engineering phase. Which
came as a major shock to Roy Woodruff. Woodruff headed up the X-
ray program at Lawrence-Livermore and he knew the project hadn't
passed =97 and might never pass =97 the theoretical hurdle. Unable
to stop Teller's locomotive via back channels, Woodruff blew the
whistle in a formal grievance and was promptly demoted.
