Although he did not specifically refer to the Joint Chiefs, Fallon also suggested that other military leaders were opposing a strike against Iran, saying, “There are several of us who are trying to put the crazies back in the box,” according to the same source.
It is safe to say that the crazies referred to by Admiral Fallon are not below him in the chain of command. Who does that leave?
The more you look at the necessary complexities of this event the more it points to the White House.
The September 6 raid over Syria was carried out by the US Air Force, the Al-Jazeera Web site reported Friday. The Web site quoted Israeli and Arab sources as saying that two US jets armed with tactical nuclear weapons carried out an attack on a suspected nuclear site under construction.
"The warheads were discovered shortly after 8:45 PM Thursday evening at Barksdale."
"The Air Force decided at first to keep the mishap under wraps, in part because of policies that prohibit the confirmation of any details about the storage or movement of nuclear weapons. No public acknowledgment was made until service members leaked the story to the Military Times..."
"North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan said he's asked for a full classified briefing to determine how a B-52 bomber from Minot Air Force..."
" Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl M. Levin (D-Mich) and Sen. John McCain (Ariz. the panel's ranking Republican, yesterday (Thursday) jointly called the episode..."
"Nothing like this has ever been reported before, and we have been assured for decades that it was impossible," said Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), co-chairman of the House Bipartisan Task Force on Nonproliferation."
"Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said he found the reports "deeply disturbing."
"Air Force Major General Daniel Darnell reported on the timeline of the incident to Congress yesterday (Wednesday)."
The entire bombing mission had no purpose other than "documenting" that Syria has a nuclear program - something the IAEA has been unable to document.

A pretty good write-up on how the Barksdale missing nuclear weapons could not have happened by mistake and the mysterious deaths that followed in the months after the event was leaked to the media.
The article also have pictures of some of the people who died. We may never get to know what really happened. Its possible that the people who died may have been key people in preventing a nuclear attack on Iran, and got assassinated for it.
The U.S. Air Force has publicly stated that it has made a “mistake,” which is very unusual and almost unprecedented for a military organization that tries to continually assure the American public of their safety.
The fact that seventy or more military personnel have been punished in the case of the “lost” nuclear weapons does not mean, however, that the senior commanding officers responsible for having carried out the special operation will be identified and punished.
Quite the opposite. The investigation could indeed result in a camouflage of the chain of command, where lower-ranking military personnel are accused and court-martialed, with a view to ultimately protecting those in high office who have committed an act of treason.
The series of deaths mentioned above, may have no ties whatsoever with the the August flight in question from Minot to Barksdale, but the issues of command, monitoring, and authorization cannot be overlooked or ignored. The American people have before them a case of treason that involves the highest offices of government and most probably the offices of the President and the Vice-President.

Project Camelot has been contacted by a Minot airman who has supplied precise answers
to important questions raised by the Minot/Barksdale 'missing nukes' incident.
The event was no accident. Below we present detailed new testimony from Jack Carter,
who has considerable experience handling nuclear weapons at the base.
