Not So Secret
by Lee

This is one of those how the hell is this possible moments…

THE secrets of Britain’s Trident nuclear deterrent are feared stolen, the Sunday Express can reveal.

It is claimed they disappeared from a high-security base in the US.

CIA and FBI agents launched an inquiry after top-secret material was found under a mattress in a caravan near the base during a drugs raid.

Security services fear the material includes details of Britain’s Trident submarine-launched missiles, as well as other nuclear weapons.

Under a pact negotiated during the Cold War, British secrets are kept at the base. The caravan was used by a known dealer who sold drugs to staff at the base in New Mexico.

Shocked agents uncovered computer drives under the mattress. These were traced to a rogue technician at the complex.

Both the woman technician and the drug dealer have been arrested.

Last night the director of the Los Alamos base, Michael Anastasio, said: “Unfortunately, my ability to discuss the details of this matter is constrained due to the nature of the situation. What I can say is that this is a serious matter, and we are taking immediate steps to address it.

“First, we are fully co-operating with the FBI and we intend to do everything possible to guard against any criminal activity.

“Second, in conjunction with the FBI, we began, and will continue, to pursue the facts surrounding this incident in order to fully assess necessary immediate and long-term actions. We have already taken a number of steps to address potential security risks.”

A Los Alamos police spokesman said: “The stolen classified documents were found during a drug raid. The woman holds a responsible position in the facility.”

That’s right, folks.  Britain’s nuclear secrets have been found under a mattress in a meth lab.  I mean, seriously, what the hell is it about Los Alamos that makes it leak like a sieve?  Why are people who associate with meth dealers allowed to have top secret clearances (or better) anyway?  Do we just hand out clearances to anyone who asks?

No wonder there hasn’t been another major attack since 9-11.

The just have to wait for our own stupidity to do us in first.

Not exactly. Los Alamos used to be managed (for 63 years) by the University of California, which also manages the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. Since June 1, LANL has been managed by a consortium that includes the U. of CA and Bechtel. The management contract was put out for bids for the very first time because of the security problems, but by adding Bechtel to their group the same old contractor won it, beating a Lockmart/U. of TX team. The whole thing is run out of the DoE office in Oakland, using budgeting software designed and in part written by yours truly.

Btw, Los Alamos/Santa Fe is at the top of our list of places to build a retirement home, along with Asheville NC and Mendocino. I have friends at LANL.

Well, we may as well write this thread off as an utterly pointless flamewar, when the usual suspects pile in and start demanding documentary evidence, retaliatory name-dropping, trading accusations and using loaded nicknames, as well as the ever-popular countdown rhetorical device.

Countdown rhetorical device in 3...2...1…

Don’t forget [crickets chirping].

It’s Clinton’s Fault.
It’s CNN and the durn librul media.
It’s George Soros’ fault.
It’s Cindy Sheehan’s Fault.
It’s Al Franken’s Fault.
It’s the fault of the damn Secular Progressives (SP’s).
It’s the fault of activist courts treating those damn faggots like normal people.

American meth users are planning to invade England?  I’m sure England is quaking.

I’m pretty sure that it’s not the meth users they’re concerned about, but whoever the meth users exchanged with for meth money.
