Air Force unit fails nuke inspection

WASHINGTON (CNN) - An Air Force nuclear missile unit failed a safety and security inspection this week, the second wing of its kind to stumble on tests this year.

The latest involves the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, which operates about a third of the 450 Minuteman III nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles, according to an Air Force statement.

The wing received an "unsatisfactory rating" after making "tactical level errors" during one of several exercises conducted as part of the inspection.

A review is underway to determine accountability.

The errors were not related to the operation of nuclear missiles, one Air Force official said. The precise issue was not disclosed.

The wing, which includes about 3,000 personnel, was not "decertified" to conduct nuclear operations, which would have indicated a more significant failure.

Earlier this year, another wing, based at Minot North Dakota did poorly in an inspection, resulting in the removal of 17 military personnel from their jobs.

The third wing is located at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something relating to this.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it won't disappoint me as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, nonetheless I actually believed you'd have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
