apocalypse whoops

pale rider at blue girl, red state, tells us just how incompetent the top brass at the pentagon are:

i guess you just need to expect incompetence from these people...

msnbc breaking news

washington - the pentagon said on tuesday that it mistakenly shipped non-nuclear ballistic missile components to taiwan from a u.s. air force base in wyoming.

it said the items have been returned to the united states.

at a news conference, air force secretary michael wynne said that the misshipped items were four nose cone assemblies for ballistic missiles. he also said it was sent instead of helicopter batteries that had been ordered by taiwan, he said.

wynne said the matter is under investigation.

ryan henry, the no. 2 policy official in the office of defense secretary robert gates, said president bush was notified of the mistake and the actions to recover the items. henry called the mistake "disconcerting" and intolerable.
so, now the question is this: given that the air force has now shipped nuclear weapons across the country without properly accounting for them, and given this latest slip-up, who's being fired?
probably no one.

Some low level Airman or Sargent will catch hell for this. If it was a political appointee that was responsible, they will get the Medal of Freedom.
