Quantum computing: US to axe work?

In Nature (3 June 2009 Nature459, 625 (2009) | doi:10.1038/459625a), we we learn from Sharon Weinberger about "Spooky research cuts: US intelligence agency axes funding for work on quantum computing":
Two leading researchers in quantum computing have had their funds cut off by a US intelligence-research agency in what seems to be an administrative technicality.
