Two days after Vice Adm. Tim Giardina,
the commander of all our nuclear subs was fired, then Major Gen. Michael Carey,
the commander of all our nuclear ICBMs was fired and replaced by a dual-citizen named Jacob "Jack" Weinstein.
How do these dual citizens of Israel continue to receive security clearances?
This is clearly a national security nightmare waiting to happen.
Update: January 18, 2014
The shakeup has begun under our Israeli-American General Jacob Weinstein.
Why are our military commanders not shielded from the politics of
Obama? Isn't that one of the MUST-HAVES -- that we must secure a
"politically secular" military?
There is nothing politically secular going on here. This is a reverse-Nazi purge of our military.
AP Findings on Troubles in Nation's Nuclear Force
by AP on Jan 16, 2014
A string of nuclear missteps, many uncovered by The Associated Press, have beset the nation's nuclear force in the last year:
— On Wednesday, the Air Force
said 34 nuclear missile launch officers have been implicated in a
cheating scandal and have been stripped of their certification in what
the Air Force believes is the largest such breach of integrity in the
nuclear force. The cheating involves the monthly test on their
knowledge of how to operate the missiles.
— As part of the announcement Wednesday of the alleged cheating, the
Air Force said three ICBM launch officers — two at Malmstrom Air Force
Base in Montana and one at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming — were
among 11 officers at six bases implicated in an illegal-narcotics

there may not have been time to get the flight crews to Benghazi, but
left the door open when he told Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) under
cross-examination that he could have launched aircraft to the
destination. He was later accused of using profanity in a public

ended his career.
