If this is true... and there is a missing nuke and it does go off in a major city what can we the American people do to expose this?

IMO the fuel would be removed and placed into another device that doesn't require a code to set it off.

If there is something planned soon, it could explain why Australia's Prime Minister, John Howard, is waiting so long to announce this year's election date. He's expected to announce it any day now, and according to the latest polls his chances are less than ideal for a win.
I'm just speculating, but what if Bush mentioned something to him during last week's APEC summit? What if Howard was told to 'hang on and things'll turn around - give it a few weeks and the numbers will change'? He wouldn't need to know details, just that he should wait. If something major did happen this month, I doubt the people would be so inclined to change leaders within two months time.
Howard has been such a 'Yes Man' and good friend to the president, I'm sure Bush would do whatever it took to keep the prime minister on-side. And I'm also just as sure Howard would do anything for his 'bestest friend.'
Could it be that Howard is stalling to ensure his re-election resulting directly from 'planned catastrophic events' in the US?

Why does it feel like we're living in a Hollywood style 'reality' ?
This seems like yet another chapter in the 9/11 saga.
Which constist of 3 films as if you couldn't guess by now.
The first film is called "The Two Towers"
The second film is called "The End Of All Things"
The third film is called "2012 : Endgame"
Currently we're in the 2nd film nearing the start of the 3rd act just what that act will be depends on who's writting the script they'er following. We're all just along for the ride, spectators in whatever is going on here.

Why does a US city have to be the target? Why does a detonation even need to take place? I would keep an eye on Dubai, it's a modern Irem just waiting to happen.
..What is more alarming is that this time the militants have struck not at army patrols in the tribal regions of northern Pakistan but in the highest security area, inside the heart of the army's headquarters in Rawalpindi. It means that they militants are moving around more or less at will, and attacking with impunity. Pakistan has not seen this kind of situation before.
...General Musharraf's dilemma is that if he takes decisive action, by declaring a state of emergency or even martial law, it will create an even greater backlash. So the situation is slipping out of his control...
...Mr Sharif, who was ousted by President Pervez Musharraf in a bloodless coup in 1999, has spent seven years in exile...Mr Sharif says he is determined to lead a campaign against General Musharraf ahead of elections.
...Ms Bhutto had been in talks to become PM again, with beleaguered Gen Pervez Musharraf stepping down as army chief but seeking a new term as president. Ms Bhutto said she would announce the date of her return on 14 September. Another former PM, Nawaz Sharif, has announced he will return on 10 September to challenge Gen Musharraf.
BAY OF BENGAL (NNS) -- More than 20,000 personnel from five different countries are participating in Exercise Malabar 07-2. This multilateral exercise includes naval forces from India, Australia, Japan, Singapore and the United States.
Exercise Malabar 07-2 is designed to increase ability to operate among the Indian, Australian, Japanese, Singaporean, and U.S. maritime forces to develop common understanding and procedures for maritime operations. Interoperability among maritime forces allows for a more effective capability to respond, as necessary, to maritime threats such as terrorism proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and transnational challenges such as pandemic disease and natural disaster.
Why was a nuclear-armed bomber allowed to fly over the US?
There is another tactical consideration that makes the supposed mix-up at Minot Air Base even more chilling. The Air Force, as well as the Navy, is increasingly making dual use of its cruise missiles, changing nuclear warheads for conventional ones. Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missiles have been used extensively in recent US military interventions. If such a “mistake” is possible in a flight between two US air bases, presumably it is equally possible in a wartime situation, with the potential of a B-52 launching a nuclear strike against a target that was meant to be hit with a conventional weapon.
The second possibility—that the flight was authorized at a higher level—poses an even more immediate threat.
B-52s from Barksdale have been used repeatedly to strike targets in Iraq, firing cruise missiles at Iraqi targets in 1996 and 1998, and in the “shock and awe” campaign that preceded the 2003 invasion, carrying out some 150 bombing runs that devastated much of the southern half of the country.

Interesting topic and read. However there is too much inuendo and speculation to make ths assumptions believable. For example, where is a reference stating that the weapons were unguarded for 10 hours ?
Also why got to all the effort to steal a weapon which will obviously be missed. The US has thousands of plutonum cores from decomssioned weapons. If as you suggest this is some government operation they could make a weapon out of one of these pits and be far less obvious about it.
As for a smoking gun I very much doubt it. As a previous member said, they can trace the plutonium in the weapon back to the reactor it was created in, even to the month and the year. It would be very hard to hide the fa(c)t that it was an american weapon.
