Last year I got a chance to hear from the director of Los Alamos Nat'l Lab.
I asked him if the lab was working on any weapons with a yield substantially
greater than thermonuclear weapons. His response was, "I cannot comment on
that at this time." After the seminar, one of our professors asked him,
"Haven't you manufactured some anti-matter?" The director refused to answer.

I take it that means that it exists in a national laboratory, but they have
not yet acknowledged its existence. What is to be done with it is another
matter entirely.
