Maybe He Gave It To Monica

“I did not have InterContinental Ballistic relations with that woman”

(CNN) — A former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says in a new book that while Bill Clinton was in the White House, a key component of the president’s nuclear launch protocol went missing.

“The codes were actually missing for months. This is a big deal,” says General Hugh Shelton. “We dodged a silver bullet.”

…Once a month, Defense Department officials conduct an in-person verification to make sure the president has the right codes. At least twice in a row, Shelton writes, a White House aide told the Pentagon checker that the president was in a meeting but gave a verbal assurance that the codes were with him.

Then one month around the year 2000, according to Shelton, when the time came to replace the codes with a new set, “the president’s aide said neither he nor the president had the codes — they had completely disappeared.”

…Shelton says the president was given new codes within minutes when the previous codes could not be found, and the procedures have since been changed, so that the Pentagon aide who carries out the monthly check is required to wait at the White House until he or she can visually confirm the codes are in the possession of the president or an aide who is with him.

    Did they search Red China or Loral Space Systems for them? Every time I think my opinion of this traitor,er, guy couldn’t go any lower I’m proven wrong.

    Al told me there’s no controlling legal authority on the codes, yojimbo.

    He included them with the missile technology he gave the Chinese.

  4. Skyler says:

    The Clintons successfully sold themselves as centrists, but they were every bit the radical marxists as Obama. They believed in communism and military parity with all other nations.

    The opinion piece in the WSJ today said maybe he wrote his phone number on the code card thinking he was giving a business card to a chick he wanted to, er, call him.
