WTF ? (Warheads That Fly?)

You know how much this totally sucks?!! I am appalled and there is this part of me that wants to take this to the streets and say W… T…. F….. ????!!!

oK. So I’m not an activist AT ALL. And I wish I could share just how shredded I feel inside. This is so totally wrong. I can’t even imagine how the pilots must of felt when they learned of this.

Air Force investigates mistaken transport of nuclear warheads

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Six nuclear warheads on cruise missiles were mistakenly carried on a flight from North Dakota to Louisiana last week, prompting a major investigation, military officials have confirmed.

Shepperd said the United States had agreed in a Cold War-era treaty not to fly nuclear weapons. “It appears that what happened was this treaty agreement was violated,” he said.

The crew was unaware that the plane was carrying nuclear weapons, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the extraordinary sensitivity and security surrounding the case.

The mistake was discovered after the plane’s flight to Louisiana.

“I can also tell you that it’s important enough that President Bush was notified of it.”
