It is not up to the Administration to dictate how missiles or anything else in the military inventory is maintained. It is up to the Air Force and the subcontractors.
Obama is the CIC and is using his power like any leftist dictator would do. I will try to find the article later today if I can. I remember Clinton ordering the military to take the nuclear tips off of bombs during his ‘reign’ and then he used the decommisioned warheads in his bombing of tents and aspirin factories during his ‘Wag The Dog bombings in Iraq and Kosovo. That’s how he went stealth and got rid of some bombs.....so this is not unheard of for the left to do in this country when they have power.
It's my understanding that the Air Force wants to get out of the ICBM business anyway and offload that deterrence responsibility to the Navy. They want to concentrate their resources on defense of/attack from space. Nukes are so 20th century. The 21st century is about information weapons.
