Who’s Minding the Nukes?

October 14th, 2013 - 6:32 am

Another nuclear weapons chief just got busted:

The Air Force removed Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, a 35-year veteran, from his command of 20th Air Force, responsible for all 450 of the service’s intercontinental ballistic missiles. Carey, who took his post in Wyoming in June 2012, will be reassigned pending the outcome of an investigation into personal misbehavior, the service said.

The Air Force would not specify what Carey is alleged to have done wrong, but two officials with knowledge of the investigation indicated that it was linked to alcohol use.

They said it was not related to the performance or combat readiness of ICBM units or to his stewardship of the force.

Removing senior officers in the nuclear force is rare but has happened twice this week.

On Wednesday the Navy said Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, the second-in-charge at U.S. Strategic Command, was fired amid an investigation of gambling issues.

I’m sure it’s all just a coincidence, but it’s almost impossible to be too paranoid these days.

It's a good thing that Barky O'Clown is flexible about this kind of thing, especially after the election. I'm sure that we'll have a proper leftist-environmentalist-feminist running things after decades of Teh Evil Patriarchy that's been oppressing women with these giant earth mother raping devices.

Combine this with sabotage at our new facilities and hatred of NSA in general due to surveillance.

The perfect and almost expected ending to this story is that the US' nuke program being put under the guidance of the UN.

One removed for gambling, one for alcohol, the next one will be for sexual misconduct.
