They told me I had to be careful because the lab is famous for sacrificing its own children for the sake of the lab.
Los Alamos, NM (Vocus) June 3, 2010
Justice Publishing and former Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Glenn Walp have released a startling new exposé detailing Walp’s time investigating Los Alamos Laboratory: Implosion at Los Alamos: How Crime, Corruption and Cover-Ups Jeopardize America’s Nuclear Weapons Secrets. Walp was hired by the lab to investigate the security lapses that plagued the lab post September 11th. Walp uncovered the theft and loss of over three million dollars in taxpayer property, including nearly 400 computers that potentially housed United States nuclear secrets.
Walp and his team faced extensive resistance throughout their investigation. Many lab leaders were concerned Walp’s findings would jeopardize the lab’s lucrative government contract and made every effort to impede his exploration of the lab. As Walp remarked, "They told me I had to be careful because the lab is famous for sacrificing its own children for the sake of the lab." Following the investigation, the Los Alamos Laboratory and other similar facilities came under intense scrutiny. A 2004 report from the U.S. Department of Energy, which oversees Los Alamos, detailed the "alarming problem of security" at all national laboratories.
Walp is currently promoting Implosion at Los Alamos nationally. He is available for interviews and copies of the book are available for review. For more information, to set up an interview or to request a copy of the book, please call or email Jessie King, or visit the Implosion at Los Alamos Website.
