Muslim Physicist Sues Department of Energy

A Muslim nuclear physicist is suing the Department of Energy after losing his job in West Mifflin. Born in Egypt, Dr. Moneim El-Ganayni became an American citizen in 1988. In 1990, he got a job with the U.S. Department of Energy. An outspoken critic of U.S. foreign policy, El-Ganayni had his security clearance revoked in December 2007, forcing him to lose his job. When he appealed the ruling, he was told the matter was a concern to national security, and that he was not allowed to know why his clearance had been taken away. El-Ganayni hopes to return to work soon, but if he loses his suit, he says he may return to Egypt.
