Will Dick Cheney be punished for the Nuclear B-52 Incident at Minot Air Force Base

chycho

Two articles in September of 2007, one by Project Censored award winning writer Dave Lindorff entitled “Was That Nuclear-Armed B-52 Flight Destined for Iran?”, and the other by Dr. Michael Salla, an international politics scholar, entitled “Was a Covert Attempt to Bomb Iran with Nuclear Weapons foiled by a Military Leak?”, both reported that the August 2007 B-52 Incident in the United States was an attempt to start a nuclear war with Iran. For those unfamiliar with the story, “A B-52 bomber mistakenly loaded with six nuclear warheads flew from Minot Air Force Base, N.D., to Barksdale Air Force Base, La., on Aug. 30, resulting in an Air Force-wide investigation.”

Both, Dave Lindorff and Dr. Michael Salla, reported that Vice President Cheney was behind the incident. The same person who believes that “the US should not be pursuing a diplomatic path with Iran”, but rather should “establish the policy and pathway to bombing Iran.”

According to Dr. Michael Salla we were lucky, “the world (was) spared a devastating nuclear war by courageous American airmen who revealed the true contents of an otherwise routine B-52 landing at Barksdale, AFB headed for a covert nuclear mission to the Middle East.”

Unfortunately however, aside for a number of mysterious deathssurrounding the incident, 70 of these courageous American airmen were punished in October of 2007 instead of being honored, while the architect of this horrendous crime has remained in power to continue his attempts to start a Nuclear World War III.

This story however is refusing to die. The latest casualties related to this incident are two of the most senior officials in US air force. This week, “Gen T Michael Moseley, the chief of staff, and Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne were both asked to resign by Defence Secretary Robert Gates.”

“In an extraordinary indication of concern about the handling of the nation's nuclear arsenal, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates on Thursday forced the top civilian and military leaders of the Air Force to resign and appointed a former secretary of defense to devise new ways to better guard nuclear weapons.

“Gates said he took the action after a Pentagon report last month found that the Air Force had systematic problems in the way it guards and transports U.S. nuclear weapons and their components.”

Will the investigation be terminated now that higher level patsies, other than low ranking airmen, have been implicated? Or will the investigation continue to seek the source of the incident?

The simple fact is that the United States military is appointed by and subservient to a civilian government. This means that someone in power outside of military command must have known and given the orders for those nuclear weapons to be loaded on the B-52 bomber and flown across the United States – and all indications are that the orders came from Dick Cheney.

Will Cheney be punished for the Nuclear B-52 Incident at Minot Air Force Base is anyone’s guess. However, one thing is for certain, the government of the United States of America is in dire need of change if we are to avoid a global nuclear catastrophe.

Note: During the research for this piece I came across the US CENTCOM Leadership page. I found it amazing that even though the United States is involved in two devastating wars along with a few major pending conflicts, the position for commander of the United States Central Command continues to remain vacant.
