67 Computers missing from Nuclear Weapons Lab


news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON – The Los Alamos nuclear weapons laboratory in New Mexico is missing 67 computers, including 13 that were lost or stolen in the past year. Officials say no classified information has been lost.

The watchdog group Project on Government Oversight on Wednesday released a memo dated Feb. 3 from the Energy Department's National Nuclear Security Administration outlining the loss of the computers.

What is happening? Now 67 computers are missing/stolen from a nuclear lab at Los Almos N.M. - supposively with no "classified information"

I would have thought, our govt. would be careful about computers - it seems awfully suspious that so many computers are missing from one lab alone. They employ 10000 people, but that many computers? Something seems completely wrong here.


Thirteen of the missing computers were lost or stolen in the past 12 months, including three computers that were taken from a scientist's home in Santa Fe, N.M., on Jan. 16, and a BlackBerry belonging to another employee was lost "in a sensitive foreign country," according to the memo and an e-mail from a senior lab manager.


It seems the U.S. has a "real" problem keeping control of nuke info and nukes themselves.

I am including the fact of the "nuke" missing thread - Minot AFB
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I am including it, because it says, there is just too many "accidents" and mishaps regarding nukes.

At some point will it all be used against us?

Only 67... If the number were say 70 I might be a little concerned.


Someone is either trying to make a buck selling these things or is using them at home. Let's hope that the PCs only full of software and Solitaire High Scores and not full of sensitive material.

Disgruntled employees would be the starting point here.

These couldn't have been stolen by just walking out the door, this was either a looted from storage, repair shop, or even during departmental moves type of deal if it is real and not just another cracker of info that is leading us towards the idea of Nukes flyin with a preliminary blame game being slowly revealed.!?

Los Alamos security is contracted; isn't it?

But if you hike to close too Groom Lake you might get shot.

Interesting contrast between the security of the officially recognized lab and Area 51.

You can steal from one of our Nuclear Research facilities, but if you walk into the Federal Reserve Bank to verbally confront a policy-maker, you'll probably get water-boarded.

Yeah, this is "how things are."

Large facility's always lose computers.
I once worked in an FBI building and it had brand new computers lining the corridors on pallets.Thousands of them just sitting there.
Although I didn't steal one, im sure many other contractors did.
In fact I know of a few who did, and never got caught.
And these were contract purpose built pc's with all the FBI stuff already on them.
Im sure the people who stole them instantly wiped that off and used them to play games.

Of course - they just wiped off the info, jeez, people don't steal govt. computers for what is on them!

I just find it interesting, so many different things that have to do with nukes have disappeared - over the last few years.

this is utter insanity, especially when you couple it with the missing nuke AND the 87,000 missing weapons in Afghanistan. What the frig??

Hey there, good evening.

I was thinking the same thing. All of the incidents that have happened lately.

If the was classified programs on those machines, the powers that be will never admit it. It would cause more panic in your hometown and on Wall Street.
I've got to say that the more of these things that happen the more jaded I become of our security within our own borders.
