Birthplace of Atomic Bomb, New Mexico Remains Center of Massive U.S. Nuclear Arsenal — From Democracynow.com

In this special broadcast from just outside Los Alamos National Laboratory, we look at the radioactive legacy of New Mexico.

We’re joined by two guests: Jay Coghlan, executive director of Nuclear Watch New Mexico, and Chuck Montaño, a former investigator and auditor at Los Alamos who turned whistleblower after calling attention to wasteful spending and fraud at the nation’s foremost nuclear weapons lab.
