I can't speak for this investigation or anything that went on at Los Alamos, but, evidently, the problem was with the oversight of lab security and
the attitudes of numerous scientists that they were above the security measures to account for data at the lab. I have even heard that they had
bumper stickers on their cars complaining about having to follow security measures, at all.
The fact that the disks turned out not to have existed points out the lax means by which disks were made and accounted for. If you don't know how
many disks exist to begin with, how are you going to keep track of them. The lab has been grossly mismanaged, by all accounts, and those who lost
their jobs did so not so much because some disks were missing, but because of the system which allowed such conditions to exist.
