One of the missing Nuclear weapons might still be missing

Despite the risk of jumping on a conspircy bus this blog below talks about a missing nuclear weapon.

In another thread here The US military admitted that they lost control of 5 nuclear weapons for 3 hours.

However at the end of the thread emerged a report that there were 6 nuclear weapons, not 5 as initially thought missing. Apparently, they only recovered 5 of them.
... Quote:
The Air Force continued handing out disciplinary actions in response to the six nuclear warheads mistakenly flown on a B-52 Stratofortress bomber from Minot Air Force Base, N.D., to Barksdale Air Force Base, La., on Aug. 30.

It was originally reported that five nuclear warheads were transported, but officers who tipped Military Times to the incident who have asked to remain anonymous since they are not authorized to discuss the incident, have since updated that number to six.

Its pretty easy to tell the difference between 5 and 6 nuclear weapons.

So this brings us to this blog which posits that the 6th nuclear weapon is still missing.
... Quote:
Six nuclear weapons disappeared from Minot AFB in North Dakota.

Five nuclear weapons were discovered at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana.

Which leads to my chilling conclusion:

Someone, operating under a special chain of command within the United States Air Force, just stole a nuclear weapon.

What next?

The answer has been provided several times, most recently by CIA Director and General Michael Hayden. On September 7, dressed in full military uniform, Hayden told assembled members of the Council of Foreign Relations:

"Our analysts assess with high confidence that al-Qaida's central leadership is planning high-impact plots against the U. S. homeland."

"We assess with high confidence that al-Qaida is focusing on targets that would produce mass casualties, dramatic destruction and significant aftershocks."

An eye for an eye. Use of nukes will justify use of nukes. A perfect excuse to wage nuclear war against Iran.

I suspect Hayden is absolutely correct, except for his mistaken identification of the "central leadership" that is planning detonation of a nuclear weapon on American soil.

The conclusion however would be compromised by the publicity over the missing nuclear weapon - if it exists.

The roar of the crowd on seems overwhelmingly that this has no basis in reality, apparently one of the rare times when digg commenters have shown credable judgement.

It does seem a difficult way of aquiring a weapon when they can be bought from the Russians totally anonymously. The trail that is left by this incident is a mile wide to follow up the chain of command.
