DOE Reprimands LANL for Nearly 50 Pounds of Unprotected Plutonium on Property
Snip...In the wake of the tragedy of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, security at LANL is under severe inspection by both LANL and local activist groups. Greg Mello, of the Los Alamos Study Group, criticizes the waste stored outside of PF-185 as a threat to New Mexico¹s security saying that if a jet had flown into such a stack of waste, "you could have a plume of (radiation) going across New Mexico in a short time."
Dick Burick, chief of security at LANL, assures that there were "absolutely no threats whatsoever to the lab," but nevertheless said, "these are very hardened facilities. It would take a large aircraft to do significant damage."
Thanks for those links. Still don't know which side got him, though. I bet that audit was interesting.
