A  new report released today by the Energy Department’s assistant inspector general said that her office reviewed 16 alcohol related cases between 2007 and 2009 involving agents, and others from the Office of Secure Transportation.. The report said that the incidents “indicate a potential vulnerability” in what it described as a “critical national security mission.”

On one instance last year, two agents got drunk in a bar and were detained by local police. In all cases though, when agents checked into hotels and drank during the evening, the trucks were in “safe harbor” status.
