Obama’s nuclear barracks !

The Naval Criminal Investigation Command has suspended the No. 2 officer at the US military command in charge of all nuclear war-fighting forces, officials said Saturday. Air Force Gen. Robert Kehler, who heads Strategic Command, suspended the deputy commander, Navy Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, from his duties on September 3.

The highly unusual action against a high-ranking officer at the US Strategic Command was made more than three weeks ago but not publicly announced.

This suspension is yet another blow to the U.S. military’s nuclear establishment. Last spring the nuclear missile unit at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., pulled 17 launch control officers off duty after a problematic inspection and later relieved of duty the officer in charge of training and proficiency. In August a nuclear missile unit at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., failed a nuclear safety and security inspection; nine days later an officer in charge of the unit’s security forces was relieved of duty.
