Angry Los Alamos United States nuclear laboratory missing 67 computers

WASHINGTON: The Los Alamos nuclear weapons laboratory in New Mexico is missing 67 computers, including 13 that were lost or stolen in the past year.

Officials said no classified information has been lost. The watchdog group Project on Government Oversight released on Wednesday a memo dated February 3 from the Energy Department’s National Nuclear Security Administration outlining the loss of the computers. Kevin Roark, a spokesman for Los Alamos, confirmed the computers are missing and said the lab is initiating a month-long inventory process to account for every computer.

Were any crackheads seen outside of the Los Alamos facilities carrying computers?

We're being taken to the cleaners from Left and Right. That's all I can say

They are probably laptops. If their security is anything like what is done at DHS, the disk drives are highly encrypted and you need a token/smart card to get into them. DHS loses computers all the time. Believe me each one sets off a crap storm of investigations. Everybody knows not to store any classified information on a laptop drive. Of course I could be wrong and Los Alamos was infiltrated and desktops were stolen. After all weren't they the ones who had sensitive hard drives end up in China a few years back?
