Remember when a B52 was loaded with 6 live nuclear missiles and flown across the U.S. last year? What ever became of the big investigation that was supposed to take place? Jeff Rense has some words to say about our "Tefflon President", (he misspelled Tefflon on purpose he says).
Here is an excerpt of a blog by Mr. Rense followed by a link to the entire blog.
If you are Mr. Tefflon, you can order nuclear weapons flown over US soil yet another violation of the law. He let the investigation run its course, then pinned the blame on the highest ranking career officers he wised to remove. There must always be a scapegoat to take the rap somewhere. The white house has repeatedly lied to the media on numerous occasions, and it's lying yet again when it says it had nothing to do with this. Those USAF officers who resigned were at the very top of the USAF chain of command.
These same men, Chief of staff Mosely and Secretary Michael Wynn are taking the rap for everything gone wrong in the past including warhead components shipped to Taiwan "by mistake." This story has the same tone of honesty as a crooked police officer planting an unregistered gun in someone's vehicle.
Minot airbase near Bismarck, North Dakota is where the nuclear weapons originated. CNN announced on May 30, 2008 that same base failed an inspection.  How convenient that this takes place now. It was just two months ago in March 2008 that Minot was re-certified to handle nuclear weapons. And now we hear about the resignation of top veteran USAF officers!
As I've stated clearly in a former essay some months ago, there has been a chain of command in place for some 50 years to control the movement of any nuclear weapon from storage to an aircraft. Stored in specially sealed and tamperproof containers, these weapons require sign-offs by safety officers for removal from storage and special containers, ordinance officers who handle them and everyone else down the line that has any responsibility associated with them.
Since the US military is staffed by an all VOLUNTEER force, why would an entire chain of command and airmen put all their careers, reputations, paychecks and retirement pensions at risk and risk a courts martial and possible time in Leavenworth? It's not possible to justify such an idea, yet that's what we've been led to believe. Instead, two innocent men are punished to make it all believable to the public and satisfy the public need for justice in the matter.
Sharp military people put numerous safeguards in place in the middle of the last century to prevent this very thing from happening. But above all, to move even one of these weapons out of storage onto a plane (and there were six of these weapons) requires an EXECUTIVE ORDER from none other than the president.
Here's a link to the whole blog by Jeff Rense.
Can someone besides the President give the order to start world war III?
Evidently a base commander can do this. Just like in Dr. Strangelove. Either that or Bush is covering this up like so many other Executive Orders that are too secret for us to know about.
It's a shame that he has to make the Air force his scapegoat for his ill advised war mongering.
