US Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James says 34 missile launch officers have been implicated in a cheating scandal and three others have been implicated in a drug probe, the latest missteps by those who maintain and operate the nation’s 450 nuclear missiles.

In all, the drug scandal encompasses 11 Air Force officers across six bases. Of the three missile launch officers involved in the drug scandal, two are at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and one is at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana.

James said those involved in the cheating scandal have lost their certification and nearly 200 missile crew members will retake the test.

  1. There is something else going on here. I just read an article a couple of days ago that Obama “wanted the missile codes” and was denied.

    This was after the Military STOPPED Obama from launching a Nuke/EMP attack on the U.S.

    He wants more “pliable” people for his goals.
    I don’t think we can believe anything right now AFTER he has retired/fired so many of our Military Leaders. This man will do anything and everything he can do to destroy the Military so I can replace OUR Military with those of HIS CHOICE.
