Air Force Leaks Launch Codes
Minuteman III Launch

This week, the Air Force went through Minot Air Force Base again, The 91st Missile wing failed an inspection and 17 officers with nuclear weapons authority were relieved of duty. The real story, pushed by AP and other agencies out of the public eye is that the real reason for the crackdown was the leaking of America’s nuclear launch/PAL codes.
A Permissive Action Link (PAL) is a security device for nuclear weapons. Its purpose is to prevent unauthorized arming or detonation of the nuclear weapon. The United States Department of Defensedefinition is:
“A device included in or attached to a nuclear weapon system to preclude arming and/or launching until the insertion of a prescribed discrete code or combination. It may include equipment and cabling external to the weapon or weapon system to activate components within the weapon or weapon system.”
From the Associated Press, the toned down version of what may well have been doomsday for the world, not at all unexpected at a base deeply infiltrated by extremist cult members:
“…possible disciplinary action is pending against one other officer at Minot who investigators found had purposefully broken a missile safety rule in an unspecified act that could have compromised the secret codes that enable the launching of missiles, which stand on high alert in underground silos in the nation’s midsection. Officials said there was no compromise of missile safety or security.”
This isn’t the first time for something like this at Minot, not by a long shot. Back in 2008, Defense Secretary Robert Gates cleaned out the entire Air Force, with the exception of key personnel with strong backing from the Israel lobby.
Beginning in 1956, Minot AFB quickly grew to become one of the largest dual-wing Strategic Air Command bases, covering over 5,000 acres of land, with the Minuteman missile complex distributed over 8,500 square miles. During the sixties, there were 5,742 officers and enlisted personnel working at the base with another 468 at the radar sites, making Minot one of the largest of the forty-nine SAC bases. Throughout the Cold War, the importance of the base cannot be overemphasized for it fielded a full arsenal of weapons for nuclear deterrence, including 150 Minuteman Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles in silos; fifteen B-52H Stratofortress nuclear bombers, also capable of air-to-ground missile launch systems; fifteen KC-135 Stratotanker refueling tankers; UH-1F Huey rescue helicopters; and the Aerospace Defense Command’s 5th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron of twenty F-106 Delta Darts. To this day, the B-52 Stratofortress, and 150 Minuteman III ICBM’s remain on alert at Minot AFB.
The “spin” is blaming a “malaise” in the Air Force since their diminished role after the end of the Cold War. With an Army armed with its own “drone” capabilities, we are told the Air Force is having a “hissy fit” over not being able to threaten the planet with nuclear destruction quite as often as they used to.
What is not being reported, however, is that Secretary Gates stopped well short of the needed house cleaning the Air Force needed. Though he removed nuclear command authority from the Air Force because of infiltration of that service by a Satanist cult which had taken control of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, the “rot” remained, and not just in the Air Force.
The Army and CIA have it as well, as reported recently by Col. James Hanke in his recent revelations about “bifurcation” in America’s military and intelligence commands.
From January 2011, a horrifically accurate prediction of what has come to pass.
“Forces well outside any political system envisioned by the Founding Fathers control America, forces capable of side-stepping or overruling any elected official or any law, up to and including, even especially, the Constitution of the United States of America.”

A little over 2 weeks ago, John Wheeler III, former Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, a man whose Washington resume put him in contact with presidents, was found in the back of a garbage truck. Two weeks later, there is no police investigation, no cause of death, no questions from the press, just silence, deafening silence.
Nothing is said of Wheeler’s career, a high profile Vietnam veteran, a man much admired, even loved. Work, bio-chem warfare, nuclear programs, now totally blacked out. All that remains is a moment or two of video, very inexplicable, Wheeler, the consummate disciplined professional drifting in what seems to be an LSD induced haze. There, the curtain was drawn, the door was closed, no further cover story, no prepared lie, the “imagineers” responsible for such things caught off balance, this time at least.
John Wheeler was clearly, “The Man Who Knew Too Much.”
Wheeler was also a “contractor,” part of the army of private citizens that now control everything that the Department of Homeland Security does not. We call this “privatization.”
PRIVATIZATION AND UNACCOUNTABILITY
“Privatization,” another word for “parallelization” put control of most defense and intelligence functions into the hands of unaccountable “no-bid” private contractors, invariably politically partisan and many uniquely willing to engage in criminality on a level heretofore unimagined.
What the marriage between a private sector, tasked with the most sensitive functions of national security, those requiring the most oversight, those subject to the most hideous abuses and an administration no longer clearly in control of the reins of government, have done to the world is a disaster, unique even by 20th century standards.
The largest military power in the history of man would become a defacto mercenary force, virtually seizing Central Asia, pre-staging it for systematic enslavement, for stripping it of resources. The economic model is amazing in scope. $300 billion a year are spent in Afghanistan. $200 billion of that is stolen. The only result of America’s military action? Destruction of the region, impoverishment of America and $65 billion in heroin production.
Wheeler’s death leads us down several avenues. They twist, they turn, they interweave, but they all end up one place, one inexorable place, another factoid making up the mosaic, the pattern revealing the fact, now unavoidable to so many, that a secret government exists. Government may be the wrong word, as “chaos” is hardly “government” and chaos is where that mosaic is taking us. A senseless and almost childish alternative reality has been created by the press and pop culture, groups that Helen Thomas would tell us are one in the same.
Hiding behind a veil of secrecy, protected by Kafkaesque bureaucracies, one upon another, shielded by a total breakdown of societal responsibility, each sector, be it pubic education, finance, news and media, government and defense, each more complicit than the last, an overwhelming hunger for truth and a feeling of solidity, of “believability” has driven millions to follow conspiracy as the new religion.
Even that, itself, is now managed, Wikileaks and its “press partnerships,” the alternative media drowned in a cacophony of rubbish, co-opted, infiltrated, influenced and bought.
1963 THRU REAGAN
Since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963, there have been continual whispers about a “shadow government” running the United States. This cabal is said to have taken America into Vietnam, its most disastrous war and planned, with Israel, the “false flag” USS Liberty attack in 1967 to push America into invading the Middle East.
The first undeniable public signs of a “shadow government” came to light under Reagan with Iran Contra, when a White House based group, selling arms to our enemies, running drugs on a massive scale, was discovered. Dozens of top officials were tried, convicted, some convictions were overturned on manufactured technicalities, others, including a Secretary of Defense, received presidential pardons. The claim was “fighting communism in Central America.” The truth, the communists left power after losing free elections, ones the communists, themselves held, while our “patriots,” the secret government, filled our cities with crack cocaine by the ton, lined their own pockets and built an organization that would later be used to rig elections and derail America’s freedoms.
