Apparently, our top nuclear weapons lab in Los Alamos, NM has a history of security problems, including a recent leak of classified information.
Who had this information? Some sinister millionaire? No, it was a guy in a trailer who was busted for drugs. Refreshing to know classified information from a top nuclear weapons lab ended up in the hands of the common criminal, isn't it?
From the AP:
Federal security officials and computer experts have been sent to Los Alamos National Laboratory to ensure directives at the nation's premier nuclear weapons lab are being followed in the wake of a possible security breach.Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing we're in good hands.
The FBI was called in last week after police in northern New Mexico stumbled onto what appeared to be classified information from the lab while arresting a man at a mobile home for possession of drug paraphrenalia.
The information was discovered on computer during a search for evidence of a drug business, said Los Alamos Police Sgt. Chuck Ney. He said police alerted the FBI to the documents, which appeared to contain classified material.
The mobile home's owner, who wasn't home at the time, was listed as a former employee of one of the lab's subcontractors.
