We received this report today via email. Do any of the blog readers have further information about this?
Pinky and the Brain:
On Monday of this week I heard a story of an employee of LANL on personal vacation in Europe. It seems that this person had removed a LANL government computer from LANL. He used the computer at LANL and apparently did not have a property pass to have it off site. Subsequently the computer was lost in Europe.
Later this week towards the end of the week and inventory of lap tops was taking place and a justification of why one was need was being done.
So now it would appear that lap tops have gone the way of USB devices, won't be long that we won't be allowed to have a lap top either.
Same old story don't punish the person that did something wrong punish everyone that works at LANL.
What has happened to the consultant and the members of the board of directors that emailed classified files? Nothing!!!!!!!
LANS needs to publish these types of incidents and the consequences of what has happened to the individuals.
What needs to happen to the individuals that do these stupid things is they need to be terminated immediately and the message needs to be sent loud and clear for all to understand.
When is the punishment going to fit the deed? Probably NEVER!!!!!!!!
Will it ever happen?
I would be very surprised if anything changes, except that Los Alamos will be the next ghost town of the West.
Wait till this comes out in the papers and in the inquisition going on in Congress.
Please keep me anonymous.
