This is a video slide show exposing the dangerous activities at the Los Alamos National [Nuclear Weapons] Laboratory in New Mexico. The former Nuclear Facility whistle-blower was a Lead Quality Assurance Auditor at LANL and upon bring these issues, and many more, to his department heads, his life was threaten, and later was demoted. The Safety Audit he was conducting was stopped dead due to what he uncovered, and the problems not addressed and or fixed. It is the brave souls like Mr. Brown who we must support, they are willing to put their lives on the line to save ours.
Dangerous Welds in Los Alamos National Laboratory,
Security Nuclear Facility
Is OUR high security nuclear weapons
research facility, Los Alamos National Laboratory, a Nuclear Accident
Waiting To Happen?
according to Lead Quality Assurance (QA) AuditorDon Brown;" It's Peoples' Lives! ", " Los Alamos National Laboratory would be
3 to 4 times Chernobyl
Click below, CBS Evening News story on whistleblower Don Brown [CBS aired three
investigative stories nationally, but in New Mexico, only one was
aired! You should ask, WHY?
only one video-story is still posted on CBS, WHY? ]
Starting in page 4, 5 starts addressing Los Alamos National Laboratory siting problems ventilations systems, and seismic issues which were unresolved... the Board has found deficiencies in safety related controls (some problems date from 2007 but remain uncorrected [why])... Page 6... these issues poses a continued risk to the public and workers... it goes on to say The CMR building near a seismic fault... and goes on to say These facilities are structurally unsound, and are unsuitable for longer use... Page 7 addresses a multitude of know problems at LANL but the NNSA is willing to take the risk to continue to operate.
Please review this report and call me. Can you get this report to the public the Board, DOE, and the NNSA a playing Russian roulette with the American Public at risk!

This is a perfect example of an overwhelming "legal precedence" that repeated (known) violations of federal law (Nuclear)10CFR830.122 have occurred year after year at Los Alamos National Laboratory, under the overview of the DNFSB. The law requires when known nonconformance's have been identified, yet have gone uncorrected.
Nuclear Safety Law-Criteria 3-Management/Quality Improvement.
1) Establish and Implement processes to detect and prevent quality problems.
2) Identify, control, and correct items, service, and processes that do not meet established requirements (nonconformance's).
3) Identify the causes of problems and work to prevent recurrences as a part of correcting the problem.
4) Review item characteristics, process implementation, and other quality-related information to identify items, services, and processes needing improvement.
Criteria 5 - Performance/Work Processes.
1) Perform work consistent with technical standards, administrative controls, and other hazards controls adopted to met regulatory or contract requirements, using approved instructions, procedures, or other appropriate means...
Criteria 9 - Assessment/Management Assessment. Ensure managers asses their management processes and and identify and correct problems that hinder the organization from achieving it objectives.
Criteria 10 - Assessment/Independent Assessment.
1) Plan and conduct independent assessments to measure item and services quality, to measure the adequacy of the work performances, and to promote improvements...
In summation the March 17, 2009, Testimony to Congress form DNFSB Chairman Eggenberger admits their have been repeated noncompliance's to this critical nuclear laws by the NNSA and DOE for years which went uncorrected including but not limited to inadequate nuclear safety basis (which prescribe technical parameters for safe operations for nuclear facilities at Los Alamos), in page 6 of the testimony used language like in describing on critical facility "poses a continuing risk to the public and workers... and in the next paragraph concludes These facilities are structurally unsound, are unsuitable for use any longer than absolutely necessary..."
The Board voices its concerns but says the NNSA is accepting it risks. Is the American public ready to accept these real risks with catastrophic consequences? I am sad to say the Board has become too willing to become party in perpetuating this serious problems, and violations of federal unclear safety law.
Please help in getting this miscarriage of justice corrected.
Brown courageously stepped up and blew the whistle on extremely
dangerous, and very possibly lethal results after effects that would
impact the whole world, not to mention the effects right here at home
in these "good old" United States!

800-miles, there would be mass-radiation contamination which could
make the area un-livable for centuries. Rivers and underground
aquifers would also be permanently contaminated and would spread that
contamination into other rivers and streams, and eventually infect the
Oceans. The contamination would spread thought the world through the

KnoxNews First look inside Y-12's uranium fortress By Frank Munger
The nation's primary stockpile of weapons-usable uranium will be housed in specially designed rackable can storage boxes.
.... but there have, of course, been some issues. ....
many of the fastener assemblies for the uranium storage boxes were installed
improperly .... multiple problems with concrete pours and the use of reinforced steel during
construction .... So it's going to take some pretty strong racks to hold the tons of bomb-grade uranium at the government's new $549 million fortress in Oak Ridge. Right? Well, it may be of no comfort whatsoever to learn that about 21,000 of the approximately 120,000 fastener assemblies in the new "safety-class storage racks" were installed incorrectly at the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility.
Loan guarantees sought by nuclear industry for reactor construction amount to ‘preemptive bailout,’ with expected default rate of 50 percent or higher.
About.com Los Alamos Missing Plutonium for 150 Nuclear Bombs Watchdog groups claim 765 kilograms unaccounted for
By Robert Longley
The beleaguered Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is unable to account for 765 kilograms of plutonium -- enough to make 150 nuclear weapons --
according to a letter from nuclear watchdog groups to LANL Director G. Peter Nanos.
Wired.com Los Alamos Lab Halts Operations By Noah Shachtman
Los Alamos National Laboratory director Pete Nanos shut down the
country's leading nuclear weapons lab on Friday, after a set of
classified computer disks disappeared and a student was hit in the eye
with a powerful laser beam -- all in the space of a week.
"As of today, director Nanos has suspended all operations at the
laboratory," an internal e-mail obtained by Wired News read.
"This is a very serious step."

Beyond Treason investigates causes of
Gulf War Illness and continuing deaths of gulf war veterans.
Beyond Treason outlines: - exposure to depleted uranium
munitions used on the battlefield. - chemical and biological
exposures - and experimental vaccines given. Statistics show
