NNSA Chief Working To Avoid Repeat Of 2012 Y-12 Break-In
In April, General Frank Klotz became the fourth person to head the National Nuclear Security Administration. NNSA oversees the security of nuclear materials at the Y-12 plant in Oak Ridge and at other sites across the United States.
This week, he made his first official visit to Y-12. As the second anniversary of a high-profile security breach approaches, Klotz spoke with WUOT All Things Considered anchor Brandon Hollingsworth about what changes have been made since the break-in, Y-12’s role in the future of nuclear weapons production and more.
