Dr. John Hnatio worked with the U.S. Government conducting "counter-terrorism" assessments of special nuclear materials, nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons production and storage facilities worldwide.

Whistleblowing

John Hnation noted "serious management failures that allowed security problems to go unresolved for decades. For refusing to concur on a misleading report to President Reagan downplaying serious security problems, Hnatio’s superiors threatened his security clearance and he was “back burnered,” no longer allowed to conduct inspections. In the 1990’s, as a senior manager for a cooperative nonproliferation program with the former Soviet Union, Hnatio discovered that elements of the US government were funding dangerous projects involving the development of new biological pathogens with Russian institutes that could have military applications. For reporting his concerns to his superiors that such activities were violating US treaty obligations and export control laws Hnatio was forced to retire. "[1]

Further study

Hnation then took a Ph.D. in risk management, which lead to him developing a patented new method.[2]
