"Highly Secure"? Security Guards at US Nuclear Weapons Base Used LSD

"Nuclear weapons and LSD seem a bad combination, but that's just my opinion."

the Associated Press reports Thursday that U.S. service members charged with guarding U.S. nuclear weapons at a "highly secure" military facility in Wyoming "bought, distributed and used the hallucinogen LSD and other mind-altering illegal drugs as part of a ring that operated undetected for months."

Those accused of involvement in the drug ring were "from the 90th Missile Wing, which operates one-third of the 400 Minuteman 3 missiles that stand 'on alert' 24/7 in underground silos scattered across the northern Great Plains."

When military investigators broke up the ring, one airmen reportedly fled the country. "Although this sounds like something from a movie, it isn't," said Capt. Charles Grimsley, the lead prosecutor of one of several courts martial the resulted from the case.

[ Hey readers - you feeling safe yet ? ]

[ Note to admin - I couldn't find a section specifically for nuclear weapons issues so I stuck this here for now. This is a breaking story and I'm sure there will be much more detail in the coming weeks. If you have a place for this type of info please let me know where it is. If you do not have a forum for nuke weapons issues I would like to request one. I have more stories ( from the past ) that show some of the inept goings on concerning nuclear weapons. ]
