    Well, the guy is a total tosspot IMO................. but I would know how to blow the whistle behind their backs, which I would do, if my sole motivation was the interests of National Security?

    The government should take "the chronicles of Narnia" or whatever that fake company calls itself.......and remove them from the list of approved contractors. And hold payments as of now

    That should do the trick?

    Soooo, how would you blow the whistle on your employer, nihil? And
    where, praytell, did our tosspot go astray? I have to wonder what the
    real story is.

    Sandia Labs? That outfit's huge. May as well be Halliburton. These
    are the same dorks that offered up Wen Ho Lee as a sacrificial lamb
    in '99 for their sins of losing warhead (MIRV) secrets to the Chinese.
    They've been bleeding nuclear secrets for well over a decade. A veritible
    model of computer insecurity.

    Easy, I would inform MI5................. they are discrete....... and gave me my security clearance

    Actually most law enforcement over here have mechanisms whereby you can give anonymous tip-offs................ that is how they gather a fair proportion of their criminal intelligence.

    I would not trust the FBI as I know of a case where someone reported anti-terrorist information and their employers were told Best bet would be Langley, as I am sure that they would love to stir it, given the amount of love that is lost between the Company and the Bureau.

    Never tell the military anything...............too many "brown envelopes"

    It seems to me that this guy did not try to remain anonymous but was actually seeking publicity?

    Sandia is indeed large, it is also run by a contractor and they are the ones who deserve the slaps. Maybe Boeing would like the job as compensation for losing the JSF contract to Lockheed Martin?
