The Boiling Frogs Presents Glenn Walp

BFP Podcast Logo

Glenn Walp discusses his recently published book, Implosion at Los Alamos: How Crime, Corruption, and Cover-Ups Jeopardize America’s Nuclear Weapons Secrets , and describes major lapses in security at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, where scientists developed the world’s first atomic bomb back in 1945. Through well-documented facts and first hand experiences, Mr. Walp provides us with an alarming exposé on America’s vulnerability to those who may now be in possession of our most sensitive nuclear weapons secrets.  He talks about several high profile security lapses and the corruption, thievery and cover-ups he uncovered during his investigations at Los Alamos Lab, the bungled investigation of the Wen Ho Lee case, his experience as a whistleblower, his motivation to write this book, and more.

 

GlennWalp Glenn Walp worked as the Office Leader of the Office of Security Inquiries at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he denuded major crimes, mismanagement, corruption, and cover-up, as well as crucial security and safety breeches. His exposures helped result in 3 Congressional Hearings, the firings/reassignments of 19 lab officials, and that the contract to manage Los Alamos be put up for bid for the first time since the beginning of the Manhattan Project. Walp is a 35-year veteran law enforcement officer, working 29 years with the Pennsylvania State Police, retiring as Commissioner, and a member of the Governor’s Cabinet, and being the Chief of Police for 2 entities in Arizona. He has a BA in criminology, MA in criminal psychology and a PhD in criminal justice, and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and Executive Institute. He is the author of recently published Implosion at Los Alamos.

  1. This interview is a bombshell! I hope Ishmael who lives in the area will comment. Especially at the end of the interview, it is noted that two vials of plutonium oxide are lost that can be used to make dirty bombs, 400 pp of documents and thumb drives go out the main gate to the home of a drug dealer,69 computers have gone missing with possible classified data, and in 2009 an inventory is not being kept of enriched uranium. It is easy to conjecture from this that a false flag operation could be developed to justify attack of Iran by ‘discovering’ enriched uranium during an inspection. Why are Quaker’s such as myself, retired teachers, put on terrorist watch lists to allow some bureaucrat tenure, while real criminal behavior goes unpunished? Glenn Wald notes that even Russia has trouble working with us because of this obvious lapse in national security at Los Alamos.

  2. @Simon: Agreed; where are you, Ishmael?! Mr. Walp has been a member of National Security Whistleblowers Coalition since 2005…and been on my ‘A’ list with his expertise, bravery & integrity.

    @Simon,

    The truth is that you guys are perceived as being easily manipulated.

    Unless someone has specifically told you that you are on the No Fly Lost or another watchlist, I doubt that you are. If you must, try the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program. It is very easy for a person to take a political issue pervasively and personally, it is something you have to keep an eye out for because it can tear you up inside.

  5. @kingfisher First, rather than perpetuate a feud with you, I hope you realize that I do not argue for the enjoyment, rather to inform any that might be misled by your abrasive manner. Are you like that in real life as well? If you are really engaged in challenging corporate interests through accounting that is an excellent endeavor. Now endeavor to be civil in your approach to the rest of us.
    “Unless someone has specifically told you that you are on the No Fly Lost or another watchlist, I doubt that you are. If you must, try the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program.

    Although trained in the scientific method, it has its limits. I did test this with the terrorist watch list. It came about because I could not confirm my ticket online, and missed a flight because I could not confirm at the automated kiosk. I then learn directly from Delta that it was because of being on a terrorist watch list. They told me to take it up with Homeland Security. However, Homeland Security remained unresponsive, because the only way one can litigate a case such as mine, is to admit that I had a grievance. They refused to repay me for the extra $50 I had to pay to rebook, for any inconvenience experienced, and to tell me whether I had been removed from the list. Do you wonder why I think they are bureaucratic SOB’s?
