NEW NUKE SCANDAL: 34 OFFICERS ACCUSED OF CHEATING
AP ^ | Jan 15, 2014 | BY ROBERT BURNS AND LOLITA C. BALDOR

Posted on 01/15/2014 6:23:35 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

In a stunning setback for a nuclear missile force already beset by missteps and leadership lapses, the Air Force disclosed on Wednesday that 34 officers entrusted with the world's deadliest weapons have been removed from launch duty for allegedly cheating - or tolerating cheating by others - on routine proficiency tests.

The cheating scandal is the latest in a series of Air Force nuclear stumbles documented in recent months by The Associated Press, including deliberate violations of safety rules, failures of inspections, breakdowns in training, and evidence that the men and women who operate the missiles from underground command posts are suffering burnout. In October the commander of the nuclear missile force was fired for engaging in embarrassing behavior, including drunkenness, while leading a U.S. delegation to a nuclear exercise in Russia.

A "profoundly disappointed" Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James, the service's top civilian official, told a hurriedly arranged Pentagon news conference that the alleged cheating at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., was discovered during a previously announced probe of drug possession by 11 officers at several Air Force bases, including two who also are in the nuclear force and suspected of participating in the cheating ring.

Can you say ‘military purge so Obamatollah’s moslem brotherhood can gain control of our nuclear arsenal?’

I believe this woman was just confirmed a couple of weeks ago, the first black woman as head of a military branch.

She's working fast to implement Obama's nuclear disarmament strategy, isn't she?

Stay tuned for next week, when Hussein removes another 200 key military officers for ‘cheating at Scrabble.’

James, who has been in the job only four weeks

Any bets that she's a card carrying RAT and muzzy?

“James is president of the Technical and Engineering Sector at Science Applications International Corp., a major federal government contractor.”

She was just confirmed on the December 13th 2013. She is white at least in the photos she is but who knows with this bunch. What qualifications does one need for this post I would think you would have at least military experience.

We are so screwed.

My standard reaction to this nonsense is to say:

BRING BACK SAC!

However, what we really need is to BRING BACK AMERICA, fear of God, and a bit of self respect.

I was a nuclear launch officer in the early 80’s. I think they cheated on their Emergency War Orders monthly test or the current equivalent. If that’s the case I woudn’t want them with access to launch keys.

This action will be cause for her to receive a handsome bonus for 2013. All of these Obama minions are well rewarded for their anti-military actions.

You are correct.

I got her mixed up with a newly installed black woman at the top of military command though I can't recall her name.

You are correct, we are being attacked by our gmint. Rob us, ruin the economy, give the un control of arsenal. The ùn troops are already in place to take over once obamma gives the nod, his now equipped army of racist, islamist and commies, will start the war before his term is up. Law folks I know who are chiefs of various cities tell me if that occurs their first bullets fired will be in the heads of the un commanders..not a joke, gmint has millions of body bags ready. Impeach obamma now or lose the gift of freedom only God gives.

Well most likely she is gay or maybe she is even a man that is how Obama picks people not on merit but rather on their group affiliation.

I’m getting to believe that all these faux crises in my missile world are design to create a hue and cry that the missiles should be taken off alert.

Thanks. I've gotten the two woman confused.

At least the new 4 star general has military experience. As far as I can tell the Deborah Lee Jones of this story (who is Secy of the Air Force) has none.

“So what's my job?”

sit in the basement five days a week for four year.

“That's it?”

Basically, if we need you, we'll call you.

“What would you need me for?”

Oh, if we need you to pull the trigger and end human civilization on Earth.

Oh, and there are five ways to screw up. 1) End mankind by accident (only you and you boss will survive). 2) Loose something. 3) Not end mankind, if asked. 5) let our friends or enemies think there is any chance you might end mankind by accident; or 5) Let our friends or enemies doubt that you will end mankind, on demand.

My newspaper publishes sunrise and sundown times in advance. These guys make sure that tomorrow arrives, and that no one turn night into day early.

Stress and boredom make for a tough environment. I don't think there's any conspiracy.

A travesty. Look at her qualifications, and look at the qualifications for the other 4-stars in any branch of the military.

I did. The difference in qualifications was appalling.

She is an affirmative action promotion.

I am sure emergency war orders are different than the proficiency tests we had, when I was a USAF air traffic controller. I did not like the way the idiots who wrote the tests, used them to F with people. When I became a senior NCO at Travis, I wrote the dang tests myself, so it did what the tests were designed for, to keep people familiar with our directives, not to needlessly F with people. By the time I retired, I was pretty disgusted with what was going on. Here is a little tid bit for you. Many retired officers (not all) want to be called Col this, or Major that. Never have I ever met a retired enlisted man or woman, who wanted to be called Tsgt this, or Msgt that. I wonder why?

Isn’t it interesting that all these cheating scandals and affairs are being brought to life on the Obama watch? normally, this (if true) would be heralded by democrats as normal behavior, nothing to see here, now move along. Methinks it has more to do with republican response, in case there would be any...Lord knows that we chastise our own and hang them out to dry pretty often. Democrats are usually the “so, what’s the problem here” with this kind of behavior. Obama wants to look like he is more ethical than the republicans?

Where are the republicans on his nominees, who are for the most part criminals, thugs, Communists, did I say thugs?, rabble rousers, etc. Rare is there any motion taken to thwart his nominees, or even question their integrity.

Obama is a CULTIST. He's a kook.

ULSTERMAN is 'forbidden' here on Freep, so I won't post the column. But a couple years ago, he posted some column explaining how a Democrat campaign operative attended the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

The Democrat operative (possibly Kam Kuwata, who was later murdered) wandered backstage at the Convention and heard bizarre 'Chanting' coming from a room, before security spotted him and roughly expelled him from the backstage area. The campaign was NOT HAPPY that Kuwata/whoever was wandering backstage seeing/hearing this stuff.

A couple minutes later, Obama emerged looking glassy-eyed like he was on drugs, and took to the stage, and delivered his Convention speech.

Well, I filed that story away in the back of my brain, and pretty much forgot about it.

Until this week.

When I noticed Corsi (and everybody else) speculating that Obama looks like the founder of the Subud (islamic) Cult from Indonesia.

The founder is Mohammed Subud. Obama's mother AND Loretta Fuddy were apparently members/associated with the cult.

The Cult's USA HQ is Chicago. The Cult has some outpost/establishment in Hawaii. The Cult originated in the 1920's in Indonesia when its founder (Mohammed Subud) started it. Do those 3 places ring any bells?

By the way? Here's a split-screen of Obama (RIGHT), and Subud (LEFT).



Mohammed Subud looks like the identical twin of Obama, down to the exact nose, ears, lips, hairline, facial crease around the mouth. He looks like Obama’s REAL father.

So I did a search for 'Subud Cult,' and started reading about it.

Apparently, the Subud Cult members 'channel demonic spirits' while CHANTING, SOBBING, WEEPING, SCREAMING, and SPEAKING IN TONGUES.

Sounds like the bizarre 'Chanting' described in that story 2 years ago.

Obama (aka Soetoro; aka Soebarkah) is a KOOK.

He is a moslem cultist, bent on destroying the USA.

ALSO, Obama just ‘replaced’ another 34 NUCLEAR LAUNCH OFFICERS last week.

Thus, we have a MOSLEM CULTIST purging our military, with particular emphasis on REPLACING OUR NUCLEAR LAUNCH OFFICERS.

Are we scared yet?
