Nuclear launch officers in charge of safe guarding and launching nuclear missiles in the event of a global emergency not only took naps on duty, but left the blast doors open during those naps, reports the Associated Press.
The AP notes that nuclear officers are taught to follow every step meticulously, since the cost of failure is so high.
"That door is intended to help prevent a terrorist or other intruder from entering the officers' underground command post and potentially compromising secret launch codes," Robert Burns of the AP writes. "Transgressions such as this are rarely revealed publicly."
Just this month the Air Force made headlines when they canned the general in charge of the entire nuclear arsenal. He left in the wake of an abysmal inspection failure of nuclear facilities in Montana.
In a written statement posted to the the website for Barksdale Air Force Base, La., the missile command said there had been "tactical-level errors" during the exercise, revealing "discrepancies."
Despite coming up short of "calling [the failed exercise] a pattern," Gen. James M. Kowalski, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, would later fire Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, the officer in charge of the missiles.

It sure makes you wonder who is running the military these days and if they are this incompetent or if they are being setup as part of Obama's purge of our military. To date he has purged at least a dozen top commanders, for the first time in our nations history. This kind of purge occurs more often in tyrannical societies like NK, the former Soviet Union or China.

Obama speaking OPENLY about the need for creating a "Civilian National Security Force" rivaling the military (which he obviously couldn't trust):
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Also, what was this all about??
Army Special Forces soldiers will not "infiltrate" Utah communities this summer — a plan that had riled residents suspicious of the government’s motives.
Green Berets had planned to parachute into several central Utah counties, cross mountains and work with Utahns who would be playing roles as resisters to an enemy regime.
thankfully residents got word of it and due to the distrust of this admin and the military under the command of Obama the military has cancelled this training exercise on civilian land.
Then there is the fact they have been purchasing enough ammo to kill each American at least five times and combat vehicles for the DHS and other agencies like the IRS, EPA and other non-military,and non-home land security agencies:
Then there is the fact that Obama has been purging our military with top Generals and Admirals being replaced by Islam sympathizers, homosexuals and other anti-Christians who can't be trusted to defend and protect our Constitution:
Who knows how many current military are working under the Obama admin that he has replaced with Muslim Brotherhood supporters and frauds like himself:
