. September 6, 2007 SouthAmerica: When nothing else is working and you are getting desperate â do a staging act. Iran â are you guys paying attention to this show of power? By the way, we were lucky that there was no problem during this staging job. But if they had one of these âOPSâ accidents â and the plane had crashed for any reason â then the US probably would have lost one or two states in the process. The Unites States have been blaming the Russians because they are supposed to be careless with their nuclear arsenal, but in the US such a thing would never happen regarding our nukes. Quoting from the enclosed article: âA B-52 bomber from the Minot Air Force Base was mistakenly armed with 5 nuclear warheads and flown for more then three hours across several states.â OPSâ¦â¦.Booooooom Sorry. ********** Nuclear Bombs Mistakenly Flown Over U.S. 9/5/2007 The national spotlight focuses on the Magic City as the Air Force investigates how a B-52 bomber at the Minot Air Force Base was loaded with nuclear missiles and flown across the country last week. We have now learned this huge mistake has cost one squadron commander his job and other airman have been temporarily decertified. Air Force officials say the public was never in danger as most of us just want to know how can this possibly happen. â¦ Air Force officials say all weapons have been accounted for and at no time was public safety in jeopardy. "The public was never in danger. Safety is paramount in every munitions activity. Designs in safety features as well as specific handling, maintenance, transportation and storage procedures are all in place to minimize the risk to everyone and especially the general public," says Lieutenant Colonel Thomas.
