A LAB -- FOR SECURITY POLICY? U.S. security policy is at a standstill, argues the Federation of American Scientists' Steven Aftergood. The classification system is too bulky, the security clearance process too cumbersome. But bureaucrats block every effort to promote change, Aftergood says.His solution: a security policy "laboratory" -- a safe zone in the national security bureaucracy in which new security policies could tested, scientifically. This enclosed environment wouldn't ruffle the feathers of the bureaucratic hens too badly. And with a limited scope, a failed experiment wouldn't become a national security disaster.
