And they are laughing all the way to the bank.

Sandia Corp., a Lockheed Martin company, was cited for four “Level 1″ violations, said to “involve the actual or high potential for adverse impact on national security,” and two lesser errors.

The violations notice says that, in 2012, a Sandia supervisor discovered that a lab employee had been making presentations at “unclassified settings” at Sandia and at least three times in public venues, dating as far back as 2003. The presentation also was uploaded to a shared server but never had been submitted to Sandia’s classification office for review.

Adam Rowen, who does not have a Ph.D., is no longer the manager of the materials chemistry department at Sandia. You should hear what the staff members in his former department have to say about him.

“Due to Sandia’s failure to identify and remove all the classified information contained in the presentation and video, it remained stored and unprotected on this unclassified shared server for over eight years,” says the DOE notice.
