Weird News


For John, BLUFDon't believe this source!  Nothing to see here; just move along.



WARNING:  This is for the humor of it.  This web site is, at best, Russian propaganda.  It doesn't even rate an entry in Wikipedia.

The headline from the EU Times is "Top US Commander Under Arrest For Refusing To Fire Nukes At Russia".

Here is the gist of it:

A new report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) for the Ministry of Defense (MoD) states that President Barack Obama’s nuclear war communication commander has been arrested and relieved of her command after failing to transmit launch codes authorizing an atomic weapons first-strike attack upon the Federation in coordination with a similar “surprise” attack planned by the United Kingdom.

According to the SVR, US Navy Captain Heather E. Cole was the commander of the US Navy’s Strategic Communications Wing 1 located at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma whose E-6B Mercury aircraft provide the communications links allowing President Obama and US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter to directly contact the submarines, bombers and land-based missiles that comprise the United States strategic nuclear force.

On Monday, 16 March, this report states, Captain Cole received from the Pentagon a launch order authorizing a “limited” nuclear strike against the Federation, but which failed due to a critical Permissive Action Link (PAL) failure thus causing her to abort this planned attack.

For those interested, here is the Navy Times article on Captain Cole's removal from command.  I recommend you go with the Navy Times article.

Hat tip to Doctrine Man.
