THE QUEST MARCHES ON
David continued to bombard Dr. Khan with questions,
until there came a point when Kahn told David about some research
papers which were available. Although the documents were totally
unclassified, and actually came from the public domain, due to
DoE security regulations, Dr. Khan was not permitted to mail David
the documents before submitting them to a lengthy security clearance.
However, Dr. Khan explained, it would be permissible for him to
view the documents if David visited his office.
Isolated in the mountains of Tehachapi, it would
be a Long March for David to make the visit. Naturally, David
contacted his man in D.C., who was still reluctant to look like
"I don't understand this stuff, David. What
am I going to say to this guy?"
"He's a scientist. He calls this the 'Holy
Grail'. He says it's 'scientifically feasible'. He says there
have been eight patents issued. Just look at the papers he has
... ask him some questions."
