Air Force to Punish 70 Airmen for Nuclear Flight

Sarah's picture

The Air Force announced today 70 airmen are to blame for the August 29-30 "inadvertent flight" of six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles from Minot AFB to Barksdale. Also predictably, a Bush appointee violated national security in originally publicizing the incident, thereby revealing confirmed location of nuclear weapons.
Sixty-five personnel have lost their certification for handling nuclear weapons, and four officers including the 5th Bomb Wing commander, who is also the Minot base CO, are among the personnel being punished.

Just asking....

We. Are. Going. To. Die. We must restore hope in the world. We must bring forth a new way of living that can sustain the world. Or else it is not just us who will die but everyone. What have we got to lose? Go forth and Fight!—Xan

This is exactly as received. It came in on an email I set up for work but rarely if ever used, and this is in the same format as the usual offers to enhance my breasts or (more often) penis. No "Nigerian widow" offers have arrived but occasionally there is a financial comeon. It's the "field of expertise" of this company that is more interesting though:

Monday update.
Symb: T A D F (Tactical Air Defense Services)
Tactical Air Defense Services (TADS), a leading provider of tactical aviation
training and services to the United States and Allied Nations, has quietly
positioned itself to utilize a fleet of the most advanced fighter jets and
aerial refueling tankers in the world for military aviation training needs.
Those who get in now are likely to see profits soar through the stratosphere.
Headquartered at the Grayson County Airport in Denison, Texas –
formerly the Perrin Air Force Base – Tactical Air Defense has the capability
to provide clients with the most comprehensive logistical, repair, and aircraft

Haven't explored to see if this is just a vaporware penny-stock situation, but if real....are we really outsourcing military training now? This seems plausible to a degree that can only be described as disturbing.

Anybody in the Denison area available to check this out?
