Jay Andre: In early 1954, Fermi's professional ire was aroused by the security risk investigations of his long-time colleague Robert Oppenheimer. Fermi compassionately testified on Oppenheimer's behalf before the Personnel Security Board on April 20th, 1954. Despite his objective testimony, the Atomic Energy Commissioners declared Oppenheimer to be a security risk by a vote of 4 to 1.
