"The top-secret Manhattan Project was laid out by Robert Oppenheimer the night Ernest Lawrence took him to the Bohemian Club during World War II. It was a part of California’s brutal rise to economic and political power described in “Imperial San Francisco: Urban Power, Earthly Ruin” [UC Press, 1999] by Gray Brechin." [1]

"Edward Teller - also known as Dr. Strangelove - went on to promote a grandiose U.S. nuclear weapons program for decades at the nuclear weapons labs: Berkeley, Livermore and Los Alamos. The program remained under a no-bid University of California management contract for 61 years."
"In a stealth takeover by the Carlyle Group, facilitated by five admirals, the management contract will be transferred next year [2005] to the University of Texas, where the military and the Carlyle Group will have control. A new “ramping up” of the nuclear weapons program is underway, with program funding at the highest level ever - even higher than during the Cold War – extending nuclear weapons into outer space, into the very atmosphere that makes life on earth possible, and with no “real” enemy in sight."

Note: The information about the Carlyle Group is incorrect:

Depleted Uranium

Depleted Uranium was proposed as a military poison gas weapon in 1943 under the Manhattan Project. [2]
