U.S. Air Force officers entrusted with the launch keys to long-range nuclear missiles have been caught twice this year leaving open a blast door that is intended to help prevent a terrorist or other intruder from entering their underground command post, Air Force officials said.

What Broken Arrow??
He’s going to put some dead-ender Myrmidon in Charge and then order our forces to attack one or more US cities.
Take the human out of the loop and install the WOPR
Broken lame-stream media.
yep ... they have and you have the plan.
Play for keeps!
are the crews now co-ed? Now there's a story for the AP.
♫ but when we get behind blast doors,
and you let your hair hang down ... ♫
yep, to believe them is bad medicine.
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.
what could go wrong?
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.
“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.”
Winds of Hope and Change ... Bad Medicine
yep ... dump on US.
Obama has to remove the staff before he can remove the weapons so he can destroy them or sell them to Iran
Hold On! zer0 know the plan.

America is definitely chewing on a poison pill these days. God help us.
