One of the nation’s most critical government ethics cases occurred at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2002. At that time, Glenn Walp and Steve Doran uncovered scandalous violations that rocked America’s nuclear weapons world. The pair disclosed improprieties that involved the theft of millions of tax payers’ dollars, the misuse of government credit and purchase cards, forgery of government funds, and the loss of nearly 500 computers that had the potential of containing nuclear weapons secrets. As these violations were uncovered, certain lab leaders attempted to block these government ethics violations from reaching the light of public and governmental scrutiny. These debacles continued at the lab, to include a lab contract employee walking out of the lab’s front gate with classified nuclear weapons data secreted in a backpack, and a lab scientist removing 3 lab computers to his residence. His residence was subsequently burglarized, the unknown thieves stealing the three computers. Lab leaders conducted an audit and determined that they actually had about 70 more computers lost or stolen over the past three years, computers that also had the potential of containing national secrets; so much for federally mandated annual audits.
Walp, one of the persons mainly responsible for uncovering these government ethics infractions, authored a book in 2010, entitled, Implosion At Los Alamos: How Crime, Corruption and Cover-ups Jeopardize America’s Nuclear Weapons Secrets.
This book is a must read for all Americans concerned about the security of our national secrets, terroristic attacks against the homeland.
