ABSTRACT

Review of Continuing Security Concerns at DOE's National Laboratories: Hearing Before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, One Hundred Tenth Congress, Second Session, September 25, 2008   [open pdf - 8MB]

From the opening statement of Bart Stupak: "Today we'll hear from several independent sources about security problems that continue to plague the Department of Energy's nuclear weapons labs. We'll also hear from DOE officials responsible for the operations of the labs and then we'll hear from the lab directors who will tell us what they're doing to address the shortcomings. The Department of Energy's nuclear weapons labs are home to some of the country's most sensitive secrets and the country's most dangerous nuclear materials. These labs - Sandia, Los Alamos, and Lawrence Livermore - employ the world's most brilliant scientific minds, but they've also been home to some very serious security breaches." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gregory C. Wilshusen, Glenn S. Podonsky, Gregory H. Friedman, Michael R. Anastasio, George H. Miller, Thomas O. Hunter, Thomas N. Pyke, Jr., Linda R. Wilbanks, Bradley A. Peterson, and Stanley J. Borgia.
