Which Missing Computers? Oh, You Mean the 14 That Had Nuclear Weapons Classified Information!

You'd almost want to laugh if the government wasn't such a Screw-Up. Hard to be fighting Wars On Terror (trademark) if the Energy Department can't keep technical secrets about nuclear weapons safe.

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.

This is the 13th time in a little over four years an audit has found 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 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, said the audit, which was released Friday.
