GAO report on problems remanufacturing warheads

Apparently this story has been covered by local papers around Oak Ridge for some time. Has now hit the national and international news.

Nickel summary - we've lost the ability to make components for Trident warheads due to loss of documentation and people leaving the complex. And the computer models were worthless when faced with trying new alternate materials on the old design.

Maybe we should go ask the Iranians for help with this part? I'm sure they haven't forgotten how to make it.

They don't care. read the "the obama biden blueprint for america" and search words weapons. It's this administartions goal to disarm the world and the good old USA. You'll find it if you read deep enough.

Obama, yeah....

While I despise the man, this trend of nerfing the nukes started a long time ago. The test-ban was Clinton's idea, and some cuts even before that under Bush-41.

Dig a little deeper and you'll discover this has been going on for a long time. Which makes the whole thing even more tragic.
