The Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is operated by the
University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy. The
United States military or the FBI are not employed to guard the
LANL'S top nuclear secrets. Private firms, who do not take the
military or FBI loyalty oath to the United States, are employed
WHO ARE THESE FIRMS WHO GUARD THE LANL?
Wackenhut and Protection Technology Los Alamos, Inc.
So far, the USA and the media have not called them to task as why
the total breakdown in the security at LANL occurred on their watch.
NewsMakingNews breaks the story:
From 1984 to the present, The Wackenhut Corporation has had a
contract with the Department of Energy to provide "management and
operation support services" for the DOE'S Nonproliferation and
National Security Institute (formerly the Central Training Academy).
. . .
From 1990 to the present, The Wackenhut Corporation has had a

counterintelligence scope polygraph examination." The Wackenhut
testing center is located at: 3201 University Blvd., S.E. Ste. 103,
Albuquerque, New Mexico. This Wackenhut program is called the
Accelerated Access Authorization Program.
From 1992 to the present, Protection Technology Los Alamos Inc. has
provided physical security services to Los Alamos National
Laboratory, a subcontract worth about $26 million per year during
the past four years. This contract was renewed in 1997 despite the
extensive problems with LANL nuclear security which resulted in Wen
Ho Lee arrest for security violations.

WHO'S WHO AT DAY & ZIMMERMAN, INC?

Army service. During that time, he held a number of important
positions in logistics and acquisitions, principally in munitions
and armament systems. His final assignment was Deputy for Ammunition

WHY WACKENHUT IS A FOX GUARDING THE HEN HOUSE AT LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL
Wackenhut was founded by George Wackenhut, FBI agent, who obtained
Wackenhut's first big job, when it worked as the investigator for
Clay Shaw, accused by Jim Garrison in the assassination of John F.
Kennedy. Since then, Wackenhut Corporation has become of the world's
top security and investigation firms.
Wackenhut was investigated by Congress in regard to its dirty trick
campaign against persons who protested the Alyeska pipeline.
Wackenhut recently was charged in Texas with running private prison
facilities where inmates were raped and beaten (60 Minutes June
Wackenhut is known as the "CIA's CIA." At the Cabazon Indian
reservation, Wackenhut engaged in biological and munitions research
with black cover operatives. On its board of directors, in the past,
was William Casey, former CIA director. Its current board of
directors is a who's who list of right wing intelligence operatives.
In Alameda County, California Wackenhut provides "food and other
services" at the Santa Rita County jail in Dublin, and provides
investigation services for the Emery Unified School Board which ran
the human pain experiments on school children for the University of
California, San Francisco. Wackenhut's job in Emeryville was to
silence the molested students who were injured by the pain
experiments and the perverted teaching staff which permitted the
experiments and themselves administered pain and molestation.
Wackenhut provides services for many other Bay area public entities
and private firms. An excellent description of Wackenhut's services
and history is contained in an article printed in Spy Magazine. (See
below.) The Wackenhut Corporation is the "grand central station" of
dirty intelligence operations. (Click to see Wackenhut's

The two discs which were "lost" at the LANL have been found behind a
copy machine. Who is being questioned? The media has yet to report
that the security firms involved have been questioned at all! Or are
these security firms conducting the investigation?
A prime question in the LANL investigation is what was and is the
role of Wackenhut and Protection Technology Los Alamos, Inc. and Day
& Zimmerman and the Yoh family?
It's time to let the United States military enlisted persons perform
security at the laboratories. These private investigation firms have
their own for-profit agendas and other personal agendas.
Only the military is qualified to perform these services at the
laboratories, because it is subject to the oath of loyalty to the
United States of America. If a military person breaks that oath, the
remedy is likely to be sure and swift pursuant to the Code of
