Atomic Secrets Missing -- Again

For the 13th time in four years, the Energy Department has lost track of computers used to make nuclear weapons. From the New York Times:

"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. "

The Energy Department released a statement from Secretary Sam Bodman saying they recognize "we need to manage this place better."

The IG notes, though, the Secretary and his Department have yet to release any plan of action or timeline for making fixes. (NYT)
