ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The government has cleared for publication 85 percent of a book written by a former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist about China's nuclear program, the man's lawyer said yesterday.
Danny Stillman headed the lab's intelligence division for nearly 14 years before retiring in 1993. He wrote his 500-page book, "Inside China's Nuclear Weapons Program," based on nine trips he made to China from 1990 to 1999.
Mr. Stillman said he honored his agreement to submit his manuscript for review but said that review required completion within 30 days. Instead, he said, the book was shelved for 19 months while the government wrangled over what portions should be classified.
Mr. Stillman's lawyer, Mark Zaid, said the government decided within days of a lawsuit being filed in June that 85 percent of the manuscript was acceptable. A publisher is already looking at it, he said.
