Update: More News Vigilant Shield-08, Missing Nuke.
I was catching up on some reading of news articles that were given to me by people to check out, when I came across this Item.
Missing War HeadIt seems that there were six nukes on the B-52 that were on their way for use on Iran. But now there are only five.
What makes the B-52 incident even more disturbing is that six nuclear cruise missiles left Minot Air Force Base, and the initial Military Times report on September 5 reported that five nuclear warheads were discovered at Barksdale Air Force Base. This was subsequently revised by the Military Times to six in an updated story five days later on September 10.
Sorces say that the orders for this B-52 mission came from dick Cheney’s office and most likely Cheney himself. The way that it came to be goes totally against the chain of command.
The orders emanated from the office of the Vice President, and in particular Dick Cheney himself. Cheney’s orders were opposed all the way up the Department of Defense hierarchy including Admiral William Fallon, Commander of Central Command, and Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates.
What we have is Cheney showing once again that he will answer to no one. So, there you have it, Either it means something, or nothing at all as far as VS-08 is concerned. But I have put the information out there and the rest is up to you.
Until later, keep your ear to the ground and you eye to the sky, and for my Canadian friends, “Keep you stick on the ice.”
