The Nuke Flight is a Major Issue CLOSELY Connected to 9/11

This issue is of major importance and I hope that people will take the time to read this essay and the one by Michael Salla, Was a Covert Attempt to Bomb Iran with Nuclear Weapons foiled by a Military Leak?. It is important to understand that this flight did NOT occur due to a mistake and that it was illegal. The orders for it had to have come from the top. This incident very much resembles a display of rogue power along the lines of 9/11. ...Alvin

There’s something definitely screwy about the August 30 incident in which a B-52 bomber flew from Minot AFB in North Dakota to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana carrying five fully armed Advanced Cruise Missiles, each equipped with nuclear bombs capable of exploding at anything from 5 kilotons to 150 kilotons.

... The Democrats in charge of Congress, and the Republican minority, may not have the stomach to stand up to the Bush administration’s obsession to keep the bloodletting going in Iraq, and they may not have the courage even to put a stop to plans to attack Iran, but even the most reprehensible weasels and cowards among them should have the basic decency to know that this bizarre and suspicious flight needs to be investigated to the fullest to get to the bottom of what was going on.

... Every person remotely connected to this mission needs to be called before Congress and put under oath to explain what happened. An independent prosecutor should also be named to start a criminal investigation.

Thanks for posting this - There have been a few theories about the meaning of this busted operation and Dave's take seems to fit well into the entire landscape and current events of late - Cheney's Back Channel seems to be at work.

They are trying to pawn this

They are trying to pawn this one off as a "mistake," but the mistake scenario is even less likely than the "incompetence theory" of 9/11. The important point is that someone had to have given the order for this as too many time-tested, highly redundant safeguards were violated. If we had a real Congress, everyone involved would be summoned immediately for rigorous questioning under oath. I do not know how to get more info on this, but I hope the 9/11 Truth community will pay close attention to this incident. It has all of the hallmarks of a rogue, back-channel operation, and if so it would be the most serious appearance of this rogue group since 9/11, and potentially more serious. Maybe the intent was to secretly use one of these in a hit on Iran and claim that the explosion was the result of something they had. Also, there have been a couple of reports that the plane left with six nukes and landed with only five. I have not seen confirmation of that, so it is speculation as of right now. Be sure to read the Scalla article linked above as he has some very good insights. It seems likely that someone was trying to steal the weapons, or make them disappear from military records by moving them around.

JFK on secrecy and the press

The conflicting count is

The conflicting count is what bothers me - 5 then 6.

Speculating again - but if the flight crew is not questioned we will not know what happened during that flight - perhaps (speculation) the missile was launched and scuttled off the coast? These ACM are the stealth variety with a longer range then their counterparts. If so, they have a fucking nuclear-tipped stealth cruise missile to use where ever they want.

It's a big deal, whatever

It's a big deal, whatever the details.
If there were six at take-off but only five upon landing, then one has been stolen, no question.
If the numbers on take-off and landing do square up, all that means is that the odds are very high that they intended to steal all five, or six, of them.
Even if there is only a 10% chance of that being true, this is a huge story.
I think the 9/11 Truth community should be all over this one. It is not impossible to get some sort of Congressional hearing on this (right). Obviously, in a sane world, if the military "screwed up" to this degree, it would NOT be the military doing the inquiry.
Can we get the names of the people involved?
You can bet this one will get smoothed over with the "mistake" excuse, the "give us more time to investigate" excuse, and lastly, the "that's old news" excuse.

In March 2007, the USAF announced that it will retire its entire stockpile of AGM-129 missiles (most likely until some time in 2008).

Intermediate range cruise missile. Year: 1992.
IOC: 1992.
Country: USA. Department of Defence
Designation: AGM-129.
Popular Name: ACM.
Alternate Designation: Advanced Cruise Missile.

Advanced Cruise Missile, strategic nuclear role with B-52. Improved, low-observable ALCM.

Historical Essay © Andreas Parsch

Raytheon (General Dynamics) AGM-129 ACM

The AGM-129 ACM (Advanced Cruise Missile) is a stealthy, nuclear-armed cruise missile used exclusively by B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers. It was originally planned to completely replace the AGM-86 ALCM, but limited funding led to the procurment of less than 500 missiles.

USAF studies for a new cruise missile with stealth characteristics began in 1982, when it became clear that the AGM-86 ALCM would become too easily detectable by future advanced air-defense systems. In 1983, General Dynamics was awarded the development contract for the new AGM-129A ACM. The first test missile flew in July 1985, and in June 1990, the first production missiles were delivered to the USAF.

The AGM-129A is powered by a Williams F112 turbofan engine, and armed with the same W-80-1 variable-yield thermonuclear warhead as the AGM-86B ALCM. Its external shape is optimized for LO (Low Observables) characteristics and includes forward-swept wings and tailplanes, a flush air intake, and a flat shielded jet exhaust. For guidance, the ACM uses an inertial navigation system together with a TERCOM (Terrain Contour Matching) system. The accuracy is quoted between 30 m (100 ft) and 90 m (300 ft), but it is highly likely, that the operational missiles were upgraded with GPS receivers for further enhanced accuracy. Range of the AGM-129A is also significantly higher than that of the AGM-86B. Alhough the ACM was originally intended for the B-1B, it is now deployed only by the B-52H. A cruise-missile configured B-52H can carry up to 20 ACMs, eight on the internal rotary launcher, and 12 on two underwing pylons.

Original plans called for the production of up to 2500 AGM-129 missiles, but this total was soon reduced to 1460 and later to 1000. Like many other weapon programs, the ACM was affected by the end of the Cold War. In 1992, the USAF announced to halt production of the missile after 460 rounds, and the last one was delivered in 1993. Current prime contractor for all AGM-129 activities is Raytheon Missile Systems Co.

There is also an AGM-129B version of the ACM, but there is some confusion about the specifics of this variant. The official source [3] describes it as an "AGM-129A modified with structural and software changes and an alternate nuclear warhead for accomplishing a classified cruise missile mission." However, there are also several sources (including [2]), which attribute the AGM-129B designation to a planned, but eventually not funded, secret non-nuclear version of the ACM. While some reports say that some ACMs were actually completed as AGM-129Bs, it is much more likely that this version was never built.

Note: Data given by several sources show slight variations. Figures given below may therefore be inaccurate!

Data for AGM-129A:
Length 6.35 m (20 ft 10 in)
Wingspan 3.10 m (10 ft 2 in)
Diameter 70.5 cm (27.75 in)
Weight 1680 kg (3700 lb)

Manufacturer: Hughes. Location: St. Louis, MO, USA/Tucson, AZ, USA. Guidance contractor: Kearfott/Raytheon. Total Mass: 1,247 kg (2,749 lb). Core Diameter: 0.73 m (2.40 ft). Total Length: 6.34 m (20.80 ft). Span: 3.14 m (10.30 ft). Maximum range: 7,803 km (4,848 mi). Number Standard Warheads: 1. Standard warhead yield: 200 KT. Boost Propulsion: Turbofan. Boost engine: F112-WR-100. Guidance: Inertial + Terrain Correlation.

W-80 Warhead

The warhead proper is nearly identical in both the Mod 0 and Mod 1. There are some differences in the design of the fission primary (different grades of plutonium used, some differences in the high explosive assembly), and in the mounting and installation hardware for the different cruise missile bodies, but in little else.

The W80 is the warhead used on the three cruise missiles currently in the U.S. arsenal - the Mod 0 with the BGM-109 Tomahawk SLCM (sea launched cruise missile), the Mod 1 with the AGM-86B ALCM (air launched cruise missile) and the AGM-129 ACM (advanced cruise missile, an air launched weapon incorporating stealth technology). It is a light weight variable yield warhead.

W80 Characteristics
Available Yields (kt) 5 / 150
Weight 290 lbs
Length 31.4 in
Diameter 11.8 in
Number In Active Service Mod 0 (SLCM) 100
Mod 1 (ALCM) 1000
Mod 1 (ACM) 450

Design Features:
Two stage radiation implosion thermonuclear weapon.
The W80 is based on the W61 design, so the exterior appearance of the two warheads is probably very similar (if not identical). This is also true of other B61 derivatives: the W84 (in the inactive stockpile), the W81 (no longer in existence), and the W85 (converted to the B61).
The 5 kiloton low yield option presumably represents the boosted primary yield alone, while the high yield adds the full secondary yield . The lowest yield option available for the B61, 0.3 kt, is not available with the W80, presumably because a yield this low is of no strategic interest.

Arming and fuzing system weighs 10 pounds.

Here is a speculative interpretation of the design:

* The fission primary is located in the larger diameter cylindrical part of the body, the aft section of which contains the firing electronics, tritium reservoir, and pulse neutron initiator tube. The spherical thermonuclear secondary is in the smaller diameter rounded "nose" of the warhead.
* The outer weapon casing is made of aluminum and is lined with uranium to form the radiation case.
* The primary consists of a spherical IHE shell surrounding the pit which is made of a hollow bonded beryllium/plutonium double shell with a two-point air lens to create the implosion. The void inside the hollow pit is filled with deuterium-tritium gas at detonation time.
* The secondary is a sphere consisting of an outer pusher/tamper layer of oralloy (highly enriched uranium) and an inner shell of lithium-6 deuteride. The secondary is hollow and is filled with deuterium-tritium gas at detonation time to produce "hot spot" ignition at the moment of maximum compression.

Primary Fissile Material:

* Mod 0 contains supergrade plutonium (very low Pu-240 content)
* Mod 1 probably contains regular weapon grade plutonium as primary fissile material.

Fissile core is beryllium reflected
Deuterium-tritium boosted
Contains oralloy, probably in the fusion pusher/tamper to create enhanced fission yield from fusion neutrons
Probably contains lithium-6 (95% enrichment) deuteride fusion fuel
Uses PBX-9502 insensitive high explosive (IHE) as main explosive - a TATB plastic bonded explosive composition.

Delivery Method
Cruise missile, which may be launched by submarine, surface-ship, or aircraft (depending on mod and basing mode). Aircraft for the ALCM is now the B-52H and the B-2 Spirit. SLCMs are now slated for use on 26 Sturgeon-class, 62 Los Angeles-class, and 3 Sea Wolf-class submarines.

Safeguards and Arming Features
* Category D PAL;
* weak link/strong link exclusion region from warhead electrical system;
* coded switch system;
* unique signal generator

See Principles of Nuclear Weapons Security and Safety for explanations of these features.

Supergrade plutonium (which has low neutron emissions) is used in the Mod 0 to reduce occupational radiation exposure to submarine crews who are in close proximity to the weapons for long periods of time while on patrol.

Fuzing and Delivery Mode

Designed and developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)

This warhead suffered from an extremely serious problem that was not discovered until after production began. Since the ALCM is carried externally at high altitudes for inter-continental delivery, it is subjected to sub-freezing temperatures for long periods of time. Although PBX-9502 test samples had been fired at temperatures of -65 degrees, and the entire electrical system had been tested in sub-freezing environmental chambers, proof testing of an entire chilled warhead did not occur until after production began.
When a complete W80 was subjected to a low-temperature test in the Baseball shot (Operation Guardian) on 15 January 1981 20:25:00.90 (UCT), it gave only a fraction of the rated yield due to problems with the IHE. Further investigation showed that other B61 family warheads using IHE also suffered from this problem to varying degrees. Redesign and a second proof test (Jornada in Operation Praetorian, 28 January 1982 16:00:00.104 UCT) at -65 degrees F were required to resolve the problem.

W80 Development Schedule
June 1976 Development engineering begun at LANL (both mods)
January 1979 Production engineering on W80-1 begins
January 1981 First production units of the W80-1 completed
September 1981 Initial deployment of ALCM with W80-1
February 1982 Quantity production of the W80-1 begins (after resolving the low temperature firing problem)
March 1982 Production engineering on W80-0 begins
December 1983 First production units of the W80-0 completed
March 1984 Quantity production of the W80-0 begins
September 1990 Production of both the W80-0 and W80-1 completed by this date

Initial manufacture of W80-1 was January 1981
Initial deployment of W80-1 on ALCM was September 1981
Initial manufacture of W80-0 was December 1983
Initial deployment of W80-0 on SLCM was 1984
Initial deployment of W80-1 on ACM was 1991
1750 W80-1 warheads have been manufactured. 367 W80-0 warheads have been manufactured.

Currently in service (active stockpile):
1000 W80-1 on ALCM
450 W80-1 on ACM
100 W80-0 on SLCM (now stored ashore, none are normally deployed on ship)

361 W80-1
194 W80-0

Conversions and Retirements:
* Some of the W80-1s were been modified under the ALT 908 program around 1994.
* In June 1986, a limited number of ALCMs began conversion to carry a high-explosive blast/fragmentation warhead and an internal GPS. They were redesignated as the AGM-8
* Under SORT (the Moscow Treaty) part of the W80-1 stockpile will be dismantled by 31 December 2012.
* Under the 1995 NPR, the SLCM is intended to be the Naval component of the U.S. tactical nuclear force.

Why would anyone choose to decommission...

Five fully armed Advanced Cruise Missiles

Because I'm pretty sure that was the reasoning for the relocation. It would be a bit more plausible if they were 30-40 years old or something.

I don't want to be distracted by this but the fact it was stopped is a good sign.

Good luck and best wishes

thats the question - was it

thats the question - was it stopped?
You can't have a nuke go missing without someone to blame, especially the one type of the entire arsenal to have its own delivery system to assist in the theft.

The one thing I can get from all of this is the fact it has no use as a false flag device in the US as it is a plutonium based weapon, but could be launched from the international waters and hitting a target just about anywhere inland (save inner asia).

Far as I can tell, this is

Far as I can tell, this is no distraction from our other work because this is very likely is the latest appearance of the rogue group that did 9/11.
It is indeed a good sign that three "anonymous" officers went public with this, but if one of the nukes is missing... (One could have been shot into the ocean or a lake and once recovered be completely off the record.)
"Moving" those weapons under the wing like that is illegal and against decades of protocol. It is highly unlikely that this was a mistake, and if it was not a mistake, well, it sends chills up my spine. As mentioned, if there is even a small chance that these were being stolen, this story is of major importance.
Also, be sure to read the Salla piece as he has more detail on this "incident," linked here: Was a Covert Attempt to Bomb Iran with Nuclear Weapons foiled by a Military Leak?

Loose Nukes Looming Near

by Captain Eric H. May
Sunday Sep 9th, 2007 6:25 AM

"...To take a single M-16 rifle from the arms room of a stateside military unit requires the permission of several military officials, along with numerous keys, combinations and codes. It is inconceivable to me, and to every other military veteran with whom I have spoken this week, that the loose nukes were a mere accident of oversight, or that the order to fly them came from any source other than the White House.

The official account of a slip up, parroted by the official media, is a transparent lie. The task for thoughtful and patriotic American citizens is to fathom the "why" behind the lie, and it comes down to a simple question: was the White House threatening to use the nukes or preparing to use the nukes?"


JFK on secrecy and the press

Arrrrrrrrr... Captain Eric H. May... Ain't he the famous...

Ghost troop commander that said there was definately gunna be a nuke in Kansas or Houston (not sure).

I've heard about the "ghost troop" and really give no credence to him (my personal opinion obviously).

Best wishes

I don't know anything about

I don't know anything about May, but his reasoning is fine in this piece.
This is the first flight since 1968 where a plane carried nukes under the wings in US air space. It was not a mistake.
Why did it happen?
To me this "incident," is sort of like finding a bunch of guys on 9/10/01 planting explosives in the WTC; they get caught and say, "Whoops, sorry! Wrong building! We thought this was a hotel in Nevada..."

If we can get real info on this nuke "incident," much will be revealed. Maybe even enough to lead back to 9/11.

JFK on secrecy and the press

Short version: whatever other facts maybe,

anything from May is suspect. He was and still is a promoter of the KW hoax:

Read the rest of the madness here:

There are very good reasons we should be concerned, but Captain MayBe and his "sources" should be avoided unless corraborated.
Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

true - but the chance of him

true - but the chance of him actually have operational knowledge of something like this is nil. He can only speculate like we can and since he is mister "they are gonna nuke us" he has to comment.

Treachery and Calumny

There is treachery and calumny afoot in the land.

I can' t tell you exactly what, or how, or why; I'm not on the inside, don't have specialized knowledge or experience, never "served", and simply (like you) read what is "out there" and have a search tool at my disposal and more than a few neural synapses that remain in healthy condition.

I spent significant time yesterday contacting numerous bloggers, progressive news distributors, and mainstream media outlets with links and text posted in my blog here (and elsewhere). I have not yet seen any follow-up except by commenters.

What has already been posted here shows some signs of "spin". It might have been premature last night to use the term misinformation or its cousin disinformation, but this morning, there is no longer any need to refrain.

Elsewhere (I have not and will not repeat it or link to it), there are indicators of at least two new "trails" of speculative information that have plausibility written all over them, but little in the way of confirmation. This alone tells me that there is something to this incident that someone doesn't want known, an area of fact someone would rather we not be digging in.

Like the top of the tower that broke off and started to fall (and then decided to change direction and composition), there are some things that don't add up. And like the aftermath, there is more 'smoke' than clarity.

Others have said it more effectively and forcefully ...

there has been a breakdown in the chain of command over nuclear weapons at a time of great global and national tension.

Congress, the media and the people should be tracking this story and asking a lot of questions, and there better be clear answers and accountability...

or else our "state" is a failed state.

All sorts of theories

All sorts of theories floating around about this on the internets, some of them positively James Bondian. One idea is that the current search and rescue operation for missing adventurer Steve Fosset is no such thing.

Who's in charge of this rescue operation?


Maj. Gen. Henry C. "Hank" Morrow is

Commander, 1st Air Force,


Commander, Continental U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command

So let me get this straight: the man in charge of the Continental U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command is looking for a missing person!?

Could they instead be looking for a missing 150 Kiloton Nuke!?

"According to the BBC article the B52 was doing a three-hour flight from North Dakota to Louisiana.

The distance between the Minot AF-Base in North Dakota and the Barksdale AF-Base, near Bossier City, in Louisiana is appr. 1,800kms.

Top speed of the B52 is about 1,014 km/h (630mph) which would suggest that the bomber could make the distance on a direct flight in about two hours.

A triangle course towards the area of Nevada, in direction of Salt Lake City, and then again eastwards, could be accomplished within three hours.

Could you elaborate on this further? How sure are you that it could not be used for a false flag within the US? Thanks!

The Eleventh Day of Every Month

I stand corrected:

I stand corrected:

According to a preliminary analysis conducted at Los Alamos National Laboratory, material released into the atmosphere during an underground nuclear test by Pakistan in May 1998 contained low levels of weapons-grade plutonium. The significance of the Los Alamos finding was that Pakistan had either imported or produced plutonium undetected by the US intelligence community. But Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and other agencies later contested the accuracy of this finding.
source :

I was not aware of any of the recent members of the nuclear club being able to acquire weapons-grade plutonium. Even though there is a conflict between the two big Gov't labs of the existence of Plutonium after the 1998 Pakistani test - the fact that it was initially announced gives room for pause.

Even so I try to see it both ways, if your going to do a covert action, you must have a cover story. It would be difficult to sell the idea that Iran (the prize) has produced a plutonium based nuclear weapon and used it in the US, when they are just beginning to get their Natanz plant to produce reactor-grade (2-5%) enriched Uranium. Weapons grade is 85%+.

Again my thinking is how would they craft a cover story to legitimize attacking Iran, that will hold, and not unite the otehr nuclear powers to the fact that the detonation was truly a false flag of the highest order.

But then again there is Global Strike / CONPLAN 8022 which would definately go into immediate action - within hours:
The operational embodiment of the Global Strike mission is CONPLAN 8022, the detailed strike plan directed against proliferation targets in North Korea, Iran, and elsewhere. First operational in 2004, refinement of CONPLAN 8022 continues.
PDF : Report: Global Strike: A Chronology of the Pentagon's New Offensive Strike Plan

PS: I generally try to think of the worst outcome to certain events and when it comes to something bigger than 9/11, I don't think I am being overboard. Then again, this could all be a ruse to illicit more fear in those who are watching events like a hawk. And another option is it is a signal to Iran that we are going to nuke them in a surprise attack, inorder to see how the Iranians will respond via air defenses (radar / moving soft targets / etc.) Of all of the options I believe the last is possibly the most likely (and emotionally I hope it is what is really going on), some military deception going on inorder to have Iran show some of its cards.

What about Osama and crew allied to individuals in Iran with a nuke from the former Soviet bloc or Pakistan? I'm afraid I'm fairly ignorant of advanced weaponry. What in your mind is the most plausible cover story for a nuclear false flag in the US? Ie the one they've been warning us about for the past 5 years? ("not if but when"..."Al-Qaeda has nukes" etc.)

The Eleventh Day of Every Month

The most plausible would

The most plausible would have to be unstability of Pakistan and through this would allow a cover story of a warhead to go missing. This would be 1 to 2 steps out as the Government of Pakistan isn't decaying into chaos at the moment.

That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head. And to be honest, I wouldn't want to give anyone any ideas :D

Two things are not clear in

Two things are not clear in my mind on the use of nukes in a US false-flag.

1) How specific is the signature of any particular bomb? That is, how certain can we be of the origin? Can the signature be faked?

2) If there were a nuke false-flag in the US, would it even matter? Pandemonium and WW3 would start immediately.

Comments on either or both of these most appreciated.

A B-52 bomber mistakenly

A B-52 bomber mistakenly loaded with six nuclear warheads flew from Minot Air Force Base, N.D., to Barksdale Air Force Base, La., on Aug. 30, resulting in an Air Force-wide investigation, according to three officers who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to discuss the incident.
The crews involved with the mistaken load at the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot have been temporarily decertified from performing their duties involving munitions pending corrective actions or additional training, Thomas said.

I can understand if it is a minor time overlap, but to post info that is so intrinsic to the thread, after 15-20 posts...just seems odd.
