The Nation : Security Breach Charged

March 11, 1985

Vice Adm. Earl B. Fowler, chief of naval shipbuilding, has charged General Dynamics Corp. with a "blatant disregard for and breach of security regulations" after the unauthorized release in an internal company financial report of 19 highly sensitive photographs of the Trident ballistic-missile submarine, according to the Washington Post. In a letter to General Dynamics Chairman David S. Lewis, Fowler accused the company and its submarine building division, Electric Boat, of showing a "cavalier attitude" and losing control of information "damaging to the national security."
