The Minot-Barksdale nuke flight. There's more.

Remember the "mistaken" flight of six nuclear W80-1 warheads strapped to Advanced Cruise Missiles back in August?

Well, that "mistake" should have been impossible. I know that runs along the same line as "unsinkable", but there is more to this whole situation than meets the eye. And now it looks like the US Air Force may well be covering up something bigger than a mere "mistake".

You will now move on to The Smirking Chimp where he asks some very clear and pertinent questions. One of them he asked got a terrifying reply:
When I mentioned the automated alarm and motion sensors to Lt. Col. Jennifer Cassidy, a public affairs person at the Department of the Air Force, and asked her how the movement of the six nukes could have occurred without those alarms being disabled, she said, "It's an intriguing question, and it makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck."
Go read. I insist.
