It's a conference about something very unimportant security wise. Maybe it's
not such a good decision to host it at Argonne's facilities. Why choose a
place with such high security constraints to host an inclusive event?

That's not a good excuse. We're at war, no hot coffee. This has nothing to
do with war, and the Ag-tech Retreat is not a confidential/secure event. I
think this *is* a problem that [in hindsight] could have been avoided, no?
