From the article, source of leaks follows. Are you buying this?

"The AP was tipped off to the Malmstrom episode shortly after it took place by an official who felt strongly that it should be made public and that it reflected a more deeply rooted disciplinary problem inside the ICBM force. The AP learned of the Minot violation through an internal Air Force email."

There is some real sloppiness showing up in our nuclear forces.

The worst was when those nuclear bombs were laying around in the open unguarded and unknowingly being flown around the country.

Yes. The AF has been going down for years. The Bent Spear from a few years ago was a symptom of the larger problem.

Nah, someone probably leaked this on Obama’s orders, because he wants to plant the idea that we are too irresponsible to have nukes, so we should unilaterally disarm.

Sorry, I don’t have the link, but I believe I saw a thread in past couple of days sometime in which it was reported that the military hasn’t trained in 6 months. Wow.

Here is something the media didn’t create, a “Bent Spear” alert, one step down in military terms from a “Broken Arrow”. A “Broken Arrow” is triggered if a nuclear missile has been lost or detonated in a way that does not create the risk of nuclear war.

2007
“At least five U.S. Air Force commanders are facing criminal charges for allowing armed nuclear cruise missiles to be flown across America.”

The alert on August 29 involved a B-52 Stratofortress bomber being flown 1,500 miles from North Dakota to Louisiana with six armed nuclear warheads in launch position below its wings. Each one had ten times the destructive force of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

The B-52 flight sparked a dramatic security alert. White House and defence chiefs were horrified when the mistake was spotted after the plane landed at Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana.
It sat overnight on the tarmac at Minot, North Dakota, without the special guards all nuclear weapons require, and only a chainlink fence and an occasional roving security patrol to protect it. One Security Council official said: “All the elaborate safeguards built in involving crew, munitions, storage and tracing procedures meant this could never happen. But it did.”

Code phrase use in combat in Vietnam when a position was threatened with being overrun to summon all available air support to beat back the attackers.

Have you not seen, “We Were Soldiers Once; and Young.”
