Oh boy — if you are a Chinese Nuclear Physicist you can get a job with the FBI:

We’re not interested in kids taking history or English 101,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. We want lists of students in the nuclear physics program.”

The official said the F.B.I. was trying to identify people with access to the directives of the Chinese government who “can tell us where they’re focusing their efforts.”

He added that the F.B.I. field offices were also looking for people who “if they go home, or when they go home, would be in a position to assist us.”
