After years of anonymity, one of the whisteblowers who proved just how limp the security measures at Los Alamos are has emerged from behind the curtain.Rich Levernier spent six years running mock terrorist assaults on Los Alamos and other nuclear weapons labs for the U.S. government. He tells Vanity Fair, "In more than 50 percent of our tests at the Los Alamos facility, we got in, captured the plutonium, got out again, and in some cases didn't fire a shot, because we didn't encounter any guards."Last week, Los Alamos' ousted security chief -- responsible for the swiss-cheese defense of these assaults -- was allowed to rejoin the lab as a consultant.
