FBI Probes Boeing Worker's Laptop Data
A scientist in the Los Angeles area working for DoD prime contractor Boeing is under investigation for mishandling classified information.
“Abraham Lesnik, listed as an employee at Boeing’s Space Based Radar group in El Segundo, has been the subject of three searches of his Valley Village home, the FBI confirmed.
The investigation stems from classified information found on a laptop computer used by Lesnik that was confiscated by Boeing, then turned over to the FBI, according to sources and news reports.
Lesnik, an expert in high-energy physics, developed anti-missile systems for Boeing and has a high-level security clearance.”
So is this a case of espionage, or is this brilliant scientist not so smart when it comes to adhering to basic security guidelines? Regardless of the answer to this question, I hate to see Boeing’s image as a great American company and aerospace leaderÂ tarnished. This will be interesting to watch unfold.
