Good to see the US is taking good care of it’s nuclear weapons… CNN reports:

Six nuclear warheads on air-launched cruise missiles were mistakenly carried on a flight from North Dakota to Louisiana last week, prompting a major investigation, military officials have confirmed.

The plane took the cruise missiles from Minot Air Force Base to Barksdale Air Force Base for decommissioning Thursday, the Air Force said.

Worrying stuff. With a trigger happy president who is happy to wage war whenever he feels like it, I’d certainly be concerned if some nuclear weapons went missing for a few hours.  It’s funny to see how military officials try to underplay things.

“This is serious business but it was not dangerous business,” Shepperd said.

With a quote like that, you know this is a major screw-up. Reminds me of a ridiculous answer from another American:

Judging from her answer, Miss Teen USA South Carolina 2007 would be a perfect fit for the US military.
