BREAKING 6-5-08 Top Air Force Brass Ousted Over Loose Nukes & Lax Security Measures
In an almost unprecedented move, U.S. Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates asked for the pair's resignations in light of a series of incidents, which according to CNN, included the August, 2007 flight of a B-52 bomber that flew across the country with nuclear weapons.
Gates also cited this year's discovery that components designed to arm and fuse nuclear warheads were accidentally shipped to Taiwan in 2006.
The resignations come after a report on a Navy admiral's investigation that criticized the Air Force's reactions to the incidents.
Gates said the report "depicts a pattern of poor performance" in which Air Force brass didn't act to improve security after mishaps and Air Force personnel handling nuclear weapons consistently failed to follow existing rules.
Air Force leaders "not only fell short in terms of specific acts, they failed to recognize systemic problems, to address those problems or, when beyond their authority to act, to call the attention of superiors to those problems," Gates said.
