A key job requirement for federal agents ferrying  nuclear weapons 
around the United States —no surprise here— is that they shouldn’t have 
“anger management” issues.

Incidents of “hostility or aggression toward fellow workers or authority 
[or] uncontrolled anger” represent rules infractions that must be 
reported to top officials overseeing the nuclear couriers, according to 
the government’s personnel manual for them.

But the commander of a nuclear courier squad based in Oak Ridge, 
Tennessee – where the uranium portions of H-bombs are fabricated, 
stored, and periodically moved to other federal sites – allegedly 
threatened to kill one of his colleagues two years ago, and senior 
officials did not learn about it for five months, according to a recent 
inspection report by the Department of Energy’s top auditor.
