Submission + - Visa problems eroding US scientific capabilities? (iht.com)

rossifer writes: Foreign science students are finding it harder than ever to obtain and renew the visas that let them continue research at US universities. The State Department claims that it's a combination of short staffing and security concerns, but wouldn't Obama be interested in ending the paranoia of the Bush-era State Department? Why are we turning away the very scientists (and presumably engineers) that we're going to need to pull us out of the current economic malaise?
