Military leaders say the decision to relieve Col. David Lynch of command
Nuclear Fire. Walk. With. Me.
Back OT: this is pretty significant that there are apparently this many security holes in nuclear facilities that it warrants relief. Not just one
time, but a couple.
This is the second time in recent months that an Air Force nuclear commander was replaced following a high-profile security
And only "in recent months." This is a serious issue.
The unit failed a review of its adherence to rules that ensure the safety,
security and control of its nuclear weapons.
150 Nuclear Silos????
The 341st Security Forces Group, which Lynch had led since June 2012, has more than 1,200 personnel members and four squadrons. It provides
security for the 341st Missile Wing, 15 launch control centers and 150 nuclear missile silos in a huge area of central Montana.
And dude failed inspections more than once.
Hopefully they will now become more secure (unlikely).
