  • Airmen at nuke base probed for illegal drug use

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Air Force is investigating 14 members of a nuclear weapons security force for alleged illegal drug activity, in some cases including cocaine use, defense officials said Friday. The probe is a fresh blow to a nuclear missile corps that has been under intense scrutiny for a string of lapses in training and personal conduct over the past three years.

    I enjoy the irony of the title - is there such a thing at a nuke base as "legal drug use"?

    If WWIII starts tomorrow, I'm not sure how many missiles would fly...or in which direction. Some of them might be aimed at Washington, DC.

      Perhaps this was one of the many causes of failure for those drills where the base is swiftly taken over by an outside force.

          Are you saying that they don't have medical facilities there?

          Or are you saying that even prescriptions from doctors is illegal?
