Skip to comments.Ex-Clinton aide reveals Bill lost the nuclear codes

Former President Clinton lost the codes to nuclear war the day the Monica Lewinsky affair broke, was MIA in the fall of 1998 when a decision was needed on the killing of Osama bin Laden, and was "too busy watching a golf match" to OK a 1996 bombing mission in Iraq, says a blockbuster new book by Clinton's former military aide. Lt. Col. Robert Patterson, who carried the nuclear "football" from May 1996 to May 1998, crosses a line no other "mil aide" has before in condemning his commander in chief in Dereliction of Duty: The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America's National Security. "This story had to be told." But a Clinton national security aide, William Danvers, tells us Clinton was never "unavailable for key" decisions and didn't jeopardize U.S. security. One story: The day the Lewinsky scandal broke, Clinton was to trade in his "biscuit" with the nuclear launch codes. But they were missing. "We never did get them back," says Patterson. Then there's bin Laden: Clinton ducked calls from the Situation Room to ok a Tomahawk attack in 1998, then waffled until it was too late.
He'll be raking in the loot....doubt if the flak, if any, will bother him. : )
Zackley...SlickWillie and the HildaBeast are INDEFENSIBLE!! Which is why the Right must not relent in in our Pursuit of Justice!!
RE-IMPEACH. CONVICT. DETHRONE.
DISBAR. DE-PENSION. DE-LEGITIMIZE.
INDICT. CONVICT. IMPRISON. DISCARD KEY.
We MUST--and we SHALL--make an example of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton...MUD
Sort of like...what is, is?
I've just checked through the books in my home library (no dewey decimal system for me, Clinton books are under T for traitor) and can't put my finger on the book I'm thinking about. It seems that I've read an account of how, through incredibly shading dealings, Bill Clinton was first introduced into goverment and the lives of Americans. I may have loaned out the copy or it's at my office. I will continue to look and let you know if I locate it.
Is the "biscuit" the thing these codes are stored on?
Do the codes change on a schedule, explaining why he is talking about trading in the biscuit, or if somebody steals the biscuit, can they start a war?
Yes and probably no. However, if the President loses the biscuit he can't start a war or retaliate against someone who does.
Alamo girl has been on this guys antics for a long time what a gal.
So what if he lost the nuclear codes. I’m sure the smartest woman in the world knew where they were.
