An Air Force unit that operates one-third of the nation's land-based nuclear missiles has failed a safety and security inspection, the general in charge of the nuclear air force told The AP on Tuesday. What exact functions the test covered is left to our imaginations ( to elaborate "could reveal a potential vulnerability") but launch operations were not involved
(making this picture purely inflammatory, but fun).
"This unit fumbled on this exercise," said Lt. Gen. James M. Kowalski, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command — raising the question: What is it with the Air Force and football metaphors? Congress is heard from, in the spokesperson for chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, California GOP Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon.
I kid you not.
