Who is securing this facility? Mall Cops?
Worse than that. Last I looked it was AKAL Security. The same people who were in charge of the Murrah Bldg though they called themselves TEG then. See this: http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3b3d8e767823.htm . It's just the first of several linked threads about this VERY questionable group.
They have also been accused of being a cult with mind control aspects. They hold fundraisers for Governor Richardson. IMO that makes him the only governor we know of who has his own little private army.
In a secure facility anything that can record should never be brought in. If it is, the device should never leave. If it is personal property, too bad.
You have to take additional measures to guard against disgruntled people. It only takes one to compromise security, Operation Plans, Intelligence, etc. That is the weakest link of any secure facility.
"Quintana has not been arrested or charged "
HA ! I'm speechless....
"I never even heard of top secret "Q-clearance""
It's real. I only know this because I've looked into getting a job at Los Alamos, and it's a requirement listed in the pertinent job postings.
It's for Quintana.
correct. why hasn't this place been cleaned up in the last 6 years? this is one area where the administration gets bad grades - cleaning out the crap in the executive branch beauracracy - DOJ, FBI, DOE.
HOW IN THE F. does a 22 year old that lives in a trailer....have Q clearence???? TELL ME ? SOME ONE TELL ME?
"What is she, a Dem?"
No, she's an Hispanic. I saw her on the news tonight. She has incredibly high security clearances and yet she was living in a trailer with a boyfriend who does drugs.
She was probably an affirmative action hire in the first place which is why they haven't arrested her or fired her.
Q is above top secret
c'mon, Hispanics are arrested every day in this country.
something else is going on here.
What does Richardson have to do with security at Los Alamos?
Isn't it run by the Federal Government?
These places are heavily into affirmative action hiring. I know someone who tried to get a professional position at one of these facilities. The affirmative action form with supposedly "volunteer" self-identification questions said, "if you don't provide racial/ethnic identification voluntarily, it will be determined through visual perception."
These places have hiring quotas for protected group members. They make sure they keep them no matter what kind of job they're doing. How else do you explain the fact that someone living in a trailer with a drugged out boyfriend has major security clearances?
I'm not in any kind of weapons or strategic area, but I've been through a fairly strict security check within the last couple of years. More stringent than my position would normally require. We've got key cards and palm scanners to get in the door. We have cameras spying on our every move. Taped telephones. Multiple firewalls. Plenty of security, one would think.
But the boss, a politician of sorts, loves to bring total strangers on tour through our work area a couple of times a week, we have the ability to record the entire network on CD's or USB drives, we don't shred our "sensitive" documents, and we have unfettered Internet access.
Typical of the government, security is a fancy facade, but like an egg, beneath the shell is a runny mess.
I left the clearance debate here at Top Secret because most people won't understand caveats and I didn't want the conspiracy nuts coming out of the woodwork
I guess that has been watered down or completely forgotten by now.
