Tennessee nuclear facility guards suspected of cheating on security tests
OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—Inspectors from the U.S. Department of Energy have found evidence of possible cheating on security tests at the Y-12 nuclear weapons facility, according to the Associated Press.
The inspection came in the wake of a July 28 security breach at the plant in which three peace activists, including an 82-year-old nun, were able to cut through several perimeter fences and reach a building containing highly enriched uranium, where they hung banners and splashed what they claimed to be human blood on the wall, before being stopped by security forces. http://www.securitydirectornews.com/public-sector/activists-including-nu...
The report said that inspectors found security quiz questions and answers scheduled to be given to guards during the review in a patrol car and believe they might have been given out to guards to help them perform well during the review, John Garrity, who was named director of the Y-12 Protective force after the breach occurred, has since been reassigned.
