Is Zenia Helbig really a whistleblower? Uhh, no. But she certainly had no right to be mocked like that by her peers. How shameful—for them. Zenia made a dumb comment and got nailed for it; these things happen, and they suck, but she isn’t a bad person. The AAA should be ashamed of itself for being so incredibly childish. And Shachtman is not helping matters by sensationalizing the whole flap.

Just to completely trivialize this discussion – is anyone else geeky enough to watch Stargate SG-1? The Human Terrian System is pretty much identical to the way the stargate teams take a scientist with them every time they go through the Stargate.
