The U.S.' national laboratories are where much of the country's most important military research goes down. Each one is a treasure trove of America's most precious secrets -- including nuclear weapon designs.And now, for the third time in six months, the security at one of these labs has been violated. William Cleveland Jr., head of security at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, resigned yesterday after nearly ten years on the job.The Washington Post reports that Cleveland has been linked to an "emerging Chinese spy scandal."The former FBI agent had an off-again, on-again sexual relationship with Los Angeles socialite Katrina Leung, who's accused of passing classified information to the Chinese government. She's now in prison, being held without bond.
