Key Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee pursued their complaint against the administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration on Wednesday.
Reps. Joe Barton, R-Texas, the committee chair, and Ed Whitfield, R-Ky., chair of the investigations subcommittee, sent a letter to Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman asking him to seek the resignation of Administrator Linton Brooks or to have him fired by President Bush.
On Tuesday, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, expressed his concerns about the revelations that NNSA failed to notify over 1,500 agency and contract employees that their personal identity information had been compromised, and that Brooks had failed to notify Bodman about it for more than nine months.
But the disaster for LANL started a dozen years ago with Gingrich's Contract on America.
-Full steam ahead! Privatize!...(blub!)
Private data has been lost by ALL branches of government, and I bet that there is loss-of-data that has not been revealed for even longer than in NNSA.
So, this is just bunk.
