"Casey James Fury simply didn't want to be at work, and in the process cost the Navy nearly a half-billion dollars and one attack submarine.
Fury admitted to setting fire to the USS Miami, a nuclear sub, in May 2012 while it was in dry dock. He was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison in March and ordered to pay $400 million in restitution -- roughly the cost of the damage."

Richard Marcinko, who literally formed the original Seal Team Six had also run a 'Red Cell' team, which was US forces playing bad guys in 'almost' full scale sneak attacks for security testing. His first book was non-fiction (unlike his series that followed) and one was an assignment to go after a ballistic missile submarine in port on the east coast.
As I recall, they left a smiley on a simulated package or something like that in a reactor space. (They got Air Force One in California too, so it was a lot of examples of bad) It wouldn't shock me to learn security wasn't that much better now. Those guys were half way expected for a very general time frame in how it worked back then, too.
After all,. when we talk about them getting security clearances wrong? The politics of it don't matter to say a few recent high profile examples show whatever they use for basis on clearance, needs work. Lots of work.
