I am no logistician, nuclear or otherwise, but this sort of thing just should not happen:
Instead of sending helicopter batteries, the United States shipped four electrical fuses for Minuteman nuclear missile warheads to Taiwan, a mistake that was discovered only last week ‚Äî a year and a half after the erroneous shipment, Pentagon officials disclosed on Tuesday.
That’s like reaching into the apple bin and accidentally handing the customer a lawnmower.
In a more nearly perfect world, this should – but probably won’t – reel back down to earth the kind of folks who continue to believe that an Omnipotent Government was really behind 9/11 – the most perfectly executed conspiracy. Evar.
