Los Alamos lab whistleblower beaten severely prior to giving testimony

In a moment that seems more like a scene from Silkwood than a news event, a Los Alamos lab whistleblower who is suing the University of California for whistleblower retaliation went to meet a man who pretended to have useful information. The man was nowhere to be found at the designated meeting place; however, a group of goons yanked him from his car, beat him thoroughly with feet and fists, and left him for dead.

Tommy Hook, who is scheduled to testify before Congress, is now in the hospital with a fractured jaw, and messed up face. He says the men told him "if you know what's good for you, you'll keep your mouth shut."
