    Reports indicate the fire came within 50 feet of the grounds of the Los Alamos lab where plutonium was stored in a fabric material building. This is unexplainable, unacceptable, and came within feet of causing the worst disaster in US history.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Los Alamos nuclear weapons laboratory in New Mexico is missing 69 computers, including at least a dozen that were stolen last year, a lab spokesman said. No classified information has been lost, spokesman Kevin Roark said. The watchdog group Project on Government Oversight on Wednesday released a memo dated Feb. 3 from the Energy Department's National Nuclear Security Administration that said 67 computers were missing, including 13 that were lost or stolen in past 12 months. Roark initially confirmed those figures, but later updated them. He said a total of 80 computers were lost or stolen...

    Lab Managers Accused of Security Breach By DEBORAH BAKER and JENNIFER TALHELM, Associated Press Writers 2 hours ago SANTA FE, N.M. - Officials with the contractor that runs Los Alamos National Laboratory sent top-secret data regarding nuclear weapons through open e-mail networks, the latest potentially dangerous security breach to come to light at the birthplace of the atomic bomb, two congressmen said. The breach was investigated by the National Nuclear Security Administration, which rounded up laptop computers from Los Alamos National Security LLC's board members and sanitized them. But NNSA and lab officials who subsequently appeared before a congressional committee...

    Washington, D.C. – Congressman Duncan Hunter (CA-52) announced today that he has introduced legislation in the House of Representatives to reestablish security at our nation's nuclear laboratories. The "Nuclear Secrets Safety Act" requires the Department of Energy (DOE) to perform a complete inventory of documents and devices containing Restricted Data and present this information to Congress. The legislation also directs the DOE to update their identification policies requiring more secure procedures to be in place for those with access to national security laboratories, including polygraph examinations, and requires that all combinations of nuclear vaults be changed within 30 days after...

    Data Found In Drug Raid Contains Weapons-Design Secrets. The recent security breach at Los Alamos National Laboratory was very serious, with sensitive materials being taken out of the facility — possibly including information on how to deactivate locks on nuclear weapons, officials tell CBS News. Officials say there is no evidence the information taken from Los Alamos was sold or transferred to anybody else, but there is no way to be sure right now. As CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson was the first to report, secret documents apparently taken from the lab were found during a drug raid at a...

    Los Alamos Disks May Hold U.S. Secrets By Dan Eggen Washington Post Staff Writer Thursday, October 26, 2006; Page A12 The contract employee at the center of a possible security breach at Los Alamos National Laboratory had a high-level clearance that may have given her special access to intelligence intercepts and other closely held national secrets, sources familiar with the case said yesterday. The FBI is examining at least three computer disks that police in Los Alamos, N.M., discovered last week during a search of a suspected drug dealer's trailer home, according to the FBI and other agencies. A woman...

    WASHINGTON TIMES ^ | 8/20/2004 | Bill Gertz and Rowan Scarborough
    Test data missing U.S. intelligence officials say the missing classified data at Los Alamos National Laboratory is related to secret nuclear tests conducted by computer simulation. The data is considered extremely sensitive because it is used in the maintenance and development of nuclear weapons. It is contained on several computer disks that were stored in a top-secret facility at Los Alamos, N.M. The disks were last used in April. When lab researchers went to use them in July, they were gone from a secure vault within the X Division. Los Alamos is currently studying the possibility of a nuclear warhead...

The Asian caucus said it was "outraged" by a patriotic group's "inflammatory remarks in Friday's Oakland Tribune" story on the event, and the resulting plans by the Assembly Republican Caucus to fight the ceremony. The six-member Asian caucus, which...

    BLUFFDALE -- Linux Networx Inc., already the proud parent of the world's third-fastest supercomputer, on Thursday boasted it is building an even more powerful system for the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The $10 million contract calls for delivery next month to the New Mexico lab's Metropolis Center for Modeling and Simulation of what will be one of the largest Linux-based clusters -- a supercomputer melding 2,816 AMD Opteron processors -- and among the fastest Linux Intel-based supercomputers in the world. Dubbed "Lightning," Los Alamos' newest mega-brain will come with a theoretical performance of 11.26 teraflops (Tflops), or 11.26 trillion calculations...
