[Ed. – Hey, the general said it, not us. Just passing it on. Lost “for a series of months.” That’s a lotta lost.]
The North Korean hermit state has been threatening to become a nuclear power all the way back to Bill Clinton’s presidency. It’s a good thing they didn’t accomplish that goal in the 1990’s, because for a long period of time, Bill Clinton could not have fired a nuclear weapon.
Why? Because the Clinton White House once lost the nuclear codes.
The story of Clinton losing the nuclear codes first came to light in the book “Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior” by Gen. Hugh Shelton, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for three years of the Clinton presidency. …
Shelton describes in his book how, for a series of months during the Clinton presidency, the nuclear codes were actually missing. “How the hell could we have lost the nuclear codes and not known it?” Sheldon writes.
