Another "By the way..." story.

Air Force Abruptly Decertifies Nuclear Warheads Unit in New Mexico



Would think this would be getting more coverage in the news.

I personally believe this is an ecessive reaction (or prove me wrong), due to the aftermath of the two recent nuke incidents within the Air Force, the Minot-Barksdale transit incident in August 2007, the Taiwan fuse shipment incident in August 2006 (admitted by DoD in March 2008), the Schlesinger Report in December 2008, and the recent testimonies in the House of Rep., House Armed Services Committee, The Strategic Forces Subcommittee will meet to receive testimony on the status of the Air Force nuclear security roadmap, Thursday, January 21, 2010, by LTG Frank G. Klotz (USAF), MG C. Donald Alston (USAF), and BG Everett H. Thomas (USAF), where at least 90 percent of the hearing is devoted to the safety of our nukes, but very little discussion of the status of our nuclear stockpile, and our need of new nuclear weapons systems, nuclear weapons modernization beyond LEPs, underground testing, and new delivery systems, and/or that Iran is close to become a nuclear state.

And, when you focus 100% solely on safety, your focus is not only short term, it´s VERY short term, and not a route to embark.

Safety, and modernization has to follow each other like a glove, that fits the hand over a very long term. (100% Safety, and Modernization.)

This is a non-issue, intended primarily to embarrass and possibly reprimand the commander in charge of the unit for poor performance under an audit. Rest assured, if there were really deficiencies that threatened US nuclear surety, the whole thing would have been under a blanket of classification, and no one would know about it.

This should be another wake-up call that the nuclear weapons complex (inc. that in the DoD) is in serious trouble. The years of neglect are beginning to take their toll.
