NAS is making inquiries into the serious allegations made by Art Robinson in a statement yesterday on World Net Daily. The article accuses Oregon State University faculty members of seeking to expel three of Mr. Robinson’s children, Joshua, Bethany, and Matthew Robinson, from the graduate and Ph.D. Nuclear Engineering programs at OSU. Mr. Robinson names four OSU faculty members as being complicit in this effort.
Mr. Robinson’s statement does not provide evidence for his claims. So far the University, citing federal regulations, has declined to comment on the substance of the matter other than to say it has investigated and “has found no factual basis for the accusations made against those faculty members.” NAS at the moment takes no position. The allegations are of sufficient gravity, however, that we are doing what we can to ascertain the facts.
