    WASHINGTON, March 30 — The office in charge of protecting American technical secrets about nuclear weapons from foreign spies is missing 20 desktop computers, at least 14 of which have been used for classified information, the Energy Department inspector general reported on Friday.

    This is the 13th time in a little over four years that an audit has found that the department, whose national laboratories and factories do most of the work in designing and building nuclear warheads, has lost control over computers used in working on the bombs.

    Aside from the computers it cannot find, the department is also using computers not listed in its inventory, and one computer listed as destroyed was in fact being used, the audit said.

    “Problems with the control and accountability of desktop and laptop computers have plagued the department for a number of years,” the report said.

    Just read that in the PROJO, Holy Crap wtf is going on here. As a nation we have huge organizations to protect us from harm, and some idiots loose their laptops.. just saw an ad in a Dell Insert, maybe they should all have LoJack installed. Or maybe they should not be allowed to take them out of the office.
