For a brief moment last week, the Department of Energy pulled back the curtain – ever so slightly – on a clandestine team that’s used to operating under the radar inside Los Alamos National Laboratory and across the globe.
“We can’t tell you quite what they did, or exactly when they did it – but some people at the laboratory have earned the appreciation of DOE’s Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence,” LANL spokesperson Nancy Ambrosiano said late Monday.
The team is known as the “LANL Field Intelligence Element” and was honored with DOE’s first-ever Exceptional Service Award for its contributions to the intelligence community mission in support of the national security of the United States. The team was cited for its “vital role in providing critical information to the nation’s most senior national security policymakers and makes possible informed judgments on matters of necessary secrecy and urgent consequence.”
Director Bruce Held of DOE’s Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence presented the award during a ceremony at the laboratory Wednesday.
