On August 30, a B-52 bomber armed with
five nuclear-tipped Advanced Cruise missiles traveled from Minot Air
Force base, North Dakota, to Barksdale Air Force base, Louisiana.
Each missile had an adjustable yield between five and 150 kilotons
of TNT which is at the lower end of the destructive capacities of
U.S. nuclear weapons. For example, the atomic bomb dropped on
Hiroshima had a yield of 13 kilotons, while the Bravo Hydrogen bomb
test of 1954 had a yield of 15,000 kilotons.
The B-52 story was first
covered in the Army Times on September 5
after the nuclear armed aircraft was discovered by Airmen. What made
this a very significant event was that it was a violation of U.S.
Air Force regulations concerning the transportation of nuclear
weapons by air. Nuclear weapons are normally transported by air in
specially constructed planes designed to prevent radioactive
pollution in case of a crash. Such transport planes are not equipped
to launch the nuclear weapons they routinely carry around the U.S.
and the world for servicing or positioning.
The discovery of the nuclear armed B-52 was,
according to Hans Kristensen, a
nuclear weapons expert at the Federation of American Scientists, the
first time in 40 years that a nuclear armed plane had been allowed
to fly in the U.S.. Since 1968, after a SAC bomber crashed in
Greenland, all nuclear armed aircraft have been grounded but were
kept on a constant state of alert. After the end of the Cold War,
President George H. Bush ordered in 1991 that nuclear weapons
were to be removed from all aircraft and stored in nearby
Recently, the Air Force began decommissioning its stockpile of
Advanced Cruise missiles. The five nuclear weapons on the B-52 were
to be decommissioned, and were to be taken to another Air Force
base. An Air Force press statement issued on September 6 (see
below insert) claimed that there,
"was an error which occurred during
a regularly scheduled transfer of weapons between two bases."
Furthermore, the statement declared:
"The Air Force maintains the highest
standards of safety and precision so any deviation from these
well established munitions procedures is considered very

Affairs, September 6, 2007]
The commander of Air Combat Command has directed an
immediate investigation, led by a general officer, into
a situation involving the transfer of weapons from Minot
AFB, N.D. to Barksdale AFB, La, on Thursday, Aug. 30.
The transfer was safely conducted and the weapons were
in Air Force custody and control at all times. The Air
Force takes its mission to safeguard weapons seriously.
This investigation is being conducted to find facts,
determine causes, and to identify any appropriate
corrective actions. No effort will be spared to ensure
that the matter is thoroughly and completely
There was an error which
occurred during a regularly scheduled transfer of
weapons between two bases. The Commander of Air Combat
Command has directed an investigation to review
operational procedures. At no time was there a threat to
public safety. It is important to note that munitions
were safe, secure and under military control at all
times. The error was discovered by Airmen during
internal Air Force checks. The weapons were safe and
remained in Air Force control and custody at all times.
All weapons have been accounted for.
General Ronald Keys, the Commander of Air Combat
Command, has appointed Maj. Gen. Douglas Raaberg,
Air Combat Command Director of Air and Space Operations,
to investigate the incident. The Command Directed
Investigation is scheduled to conclude on or about 14
Sep. Safety is paramount in every munitions activity.
Designed-in safety features as well as specific
handling, maintenance, transportation, and storage
procedures all serve to minimize risk to all personnel,
especially the general public.
The Air Force maintains
the highest standards of safety and precision so any
deviation from these well-established munitions
procedures is considered very serious. All evidence we
have seen so far points to an isolated mistake. ACC has
directed a command-wide stand down to review process at
all of our bases. Though this incident involved elements
of only two of our wings, we believe we should take an
opportunity for all units to review their procedures.
Generally, weapon inspection, verification, and
accountability documentation are activities required
throughout the transfer process whenever there are
changes to any munitionís location. These activities are
covered in applicable Air Force Instructions. More
detailed procedures, specifically tailored for the type
of munitions and transportation method involved, have
been developed to assure the safest operations possible
and any deviation from those procedures are taken
seriously and investigated thoroughly.
Munitions are transferred for a variety of reasons to
include maintenance, retirement, modernization, and
inventory adjustments to name a few. During the transfer
planning process, available transportation modes are
always assessed to determine which best satisfies the
particular requirement at hand. Military airlift and
ground transportation over public routes each have
positive and negative factors that are considered during
Pending the completion of the Command Directed
Investigation, a Munitions Squadron commander was
relieved of his duties and additional Airmen have been
temporarily decertified to perform their duties
The issue concerning how a nuclear armed
B-52 bomber was allowed to take off and fly in U.S. air space after
an 'error' in a routine transfer process, is now subject to an
official Air Force inquiry which is due to be completed by September
Three key questions emerge over the B-52 incident. First, why did
Air Force personnel at Minot AFB not spot the 'error' earlier given
the elaborate security procedures in place to prevent such mistakes
from occurring? Many military analysts have commented on the
stringent security procedures in place to prevent this sort of
mistake from occurring.
Multiple officers are routinely involved
in the transportation and loading of nuclear weapons to prevent the
kind of 'error' that allegedly occurred in the B-52 incident.
According to the Air Force statement, the commanding officer in
charge of military munitions personnel and additional munitions
airmen were relieved of duties pending the completion of the
According to Kristensen, the error could
not have come from confusing the Advanced Cruise Missile with a
conventional weapons since no conventional form exists. So the
munitions Airmen should have been easily able to spot the mistake.
Other routine procedures were violated which suggests a rather
obvious explanation for the error. The military munitions personnel
were acting under direct orders, though not through the regular
chain of military command.
This takes me to the second question
Who was in
Charge of the B-52 Incident?
Who ordered the loading of Advanced Cruise missiles on to a B-52 in
violation of Air Force regulations? The quick reaction of the Air
Force and the issuing of a public statement describing the
seriousness of the issue and the launch of an immediate
investigation, suggests that whatever occurred, was outside the
regular chain of military command.
If the regular chain of command was
violated, then we have to inquire as to whether the B-52 incident
was part of a covert project whose classification level exceeded
that held by officers in charge of nuclear weapons at Minot AFB. The
most obvious governmental entity that may have ordered the nuclear
arming of the B-52 outside the regular chain of military command is
the last remaining bastion of neo-conservative activism in the Bush
Vice President Cheney has taken a very prominent role in covert
military operations and training exercises designed for the
"seamless integration" of different national security and military
authorities to possible terrorist attacks.
On May 8, 2001, President
Bush placed Cheney in charge of,
"[A]ll federal programs dealing with
weapons of mass destruction, consequence management within the
Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, and
Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal
Cheney subsequently played a direct role in
supervising training exercises that simultaneously
the 911 attacks.
According to former Los Angeles Police Officer Michael Ruppert,
Cheney had a parallel chain of command that he used to override Air
Force objections to stand down orders that grounded the USAF during
the 911 attacks. Ruppert learned that the Secret Service had the
authority to directly communicate presidential and vice presidential
orders to fighter pilots in the air thereby circumventing the normal
chain of command. (Crossing
the Rubicon, pp. 428 - 429).
"It is the Secret Service who has
the legal mandate to take supreme command in case of a scheduled
major event - or an unplanned major emergency - on American
soil; these are designated 'National Special Security Events'".
Ruppert and others have subsequently
9-11 was an "inside job;" and
Cheney through the Secret
Service, played a direct leadership role in what occurred over 9-11.
Consequently, it is very possible that Cheney played a similar role
in circumventing the regular chain of military command in ordering
the B-52 incident.
It is likely that the B-52 incident was
part of a contrived "National Special Security Event" directly
controlled by Cheney by virtue of the authority granted to him by
President Bush, and through the Secret Service which has the
technological means to by pass the regular chain of military
If Cheney is identified as the architect of the B-52 incident, was
he acting alone in a covert operation that bypassed the regular
chain of command, and involved the nuclear arming of the B-52? In
terms of my own analysis of 9-11 as an inside job, there is reason to
believe that a more deeply entrenched parallel system of government
exists than what has been created by Cheney through the Office of
Vice President and the Secret Service (read
Cheney and his neo-conservative allies
could not have gained the necessary degree of bureaucratic and
public control necessary for conducting the 9-11 operation in the
eight month period between his assumption of power and the 9-11
attack, unless tacitly supported by a more entrenched system of
parallel governmental power. This more entrenched parallel
government is deeply nested within the
military-industrial-educational complex and controls covert projects
beyond the need the know of most civilian and military officials.
Evidence for the existence of covert projects outside of the regular
chain of military command is illustrated in the case of Vice Admiral
Tom Wilson who was J-2, head of Intelligence for the Joint Chief of
Staff. In 1997, Dr
Steven Greer and former Astronaut Dr
Mitchell had a private meeting with Admiral Wilson about classified
projects related to extraterrestrial life. Greer claimed that he had
been given a "secret document that had a list of the code names and
projects names dealing with the extraterrestrial connected
projects." When Wilson checked to determine if the projects existed,
he was denied access.
According to Greer:
Once Admiral Wilson identified this group, he told the contact
person in this super-secret cell: "I want to know abut this project."
And he was told, "Sir, you don't have a need to know. We can't
Now, can you imagine being an admiral,
J-2, the head of intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the
Pentagon, and being told, "We not going to tell you"? Well, he was
shocked and angry. (Steven Greer, Hidden Truth, Forbidden Knowledge,
The existence of a parallel governmental system using military
personnel for its own purposes has been suspected for some time as
illustrated in comments by Senator Daniel Inouye at the 1987
Iran-Contra Senate hearings:
"There exists a shadowy Government with
its own Air Force, its own Navy, it's own fundraising mechanism, and
the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free
from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself."
There is more recent testimony by two retired military personnel,
Clifford Stone and Dan Sherman,
who claim that they were routinely tasked to perform classified
duties outside of the regular chain of command, and these were
related to extraterrestrial life and technology. The existence of a
parallel system of government that circumvents the regular chain of
military command in approving highly classified covert projects
predates the rise to power of Cheney and his neo-conservative allies
in the Bush administration.
It is likely that Cheney was influenced
by a "shadow government" in formulating policies such as the 9-11
attacks and the B-52 incident as part of a wider global agenda by
the shadow government. Consequently, in response to my second key
question, the B-52 incident was not an 'error', but was actually
ordered by Vice President Cheney who acts as the most public face of
a parallel system of government that operates through compliant
political operatives. I now move to my third key question.
Why were the nuclear weapons sent to Barksdale AFB? If initial
reports that the weapons were being decommissioned, but were
mistakenly transported by a B-52 bomber, then the weapons should
have been taken to Kirtland Air Force Base.
According to Kristensen, this is,
"where the warheads are separated
from the rest of the weapon and shipped to the Energy
Department's Pantex dismantlement facility near Amarillo,
However, it has been revealed by a
reliable source that Barksdale AFB (see below insert) is used as
a staging base for operations in the Middle East. This is
circumstantial evidence that the weapons were being deployed for
possible use in the Middle East.
Staging Nuke for Iran?
Why the hubbub over a B-52 taking off from a B-52 base
in Minot, North Dakota and subsequently landing at a
B-52 base in Barksdale, Louisiana? Thatís like getting
excited if you see a postal worker in uniform walking
out of a post office. And how does someone watching a
B-52 land identify the cruise missiles as nukes? It just
does not make sense.
So I called a old friend and retired B-52 pilot and
asked him. What he told me offers one compelling case of
circumstantial evidence. My buddy, letís call him Jack
D. Ripper, reminded me that the only times you put
weapons on a plane is when they are on alert or if you
are tasked to move the weapons to a specific site.
Then he told me something I had not heard before.
Barksdale Air Force Base is being used as a
jumping off point for Middle East operations.
why would we want cruise missile nukes at Barksdale Air
Force Base. Canít imagine we would need to use them in
Iraq. Why would we want to preposition nuclear weapons
at a base conducting Middle East operations?
His final point was to observe that someone on the
inside obviously leaked the info that the planes were
carrying nukes. A B-52 landing at Barksdale is a
non-event. A B-52 landing with nukes, that is something
Now maybe there is an innocent explanation for this? I
canít think of one. What is certain is that the pilots
of this plane did not just make a last minute decision
to strap on some nukes and take them for a joy ride. We
need some tough questions and clear answers.
hell is going on? Did someone at Barksdale try to
indirectly warn the American people that the Bush
Administration is staging nukes for Iran? I donít
know, but it is a question worth asking.
There has been recent speculation concerning a possible attack
against Iran given reports that the Pentagon has completed plans for
a three day bombing blitz of Iran according to
a Sunday Times report. The Report
claims that 1200 targets have been selected and this will destroy
much of Iran's military infrastructure. Such an attack will
devastate Iran's economy, create greater political instability in
the region, and stop the oil supply.
A disruption of the oil supply from the
Persian Gulf could trigger a global economic recession and lead to
the collapse of financial markets. In a synchronistic development,
there have been reports of billion dollar investments in high risk
stock options in both Europe and the U.S. that would only be
profitable if a dramatic collapse of the stock market were to occur
before September 21.
Similar stock options were purchased weeks
before the 911 attack in 2001, and investigated by the Securities
and Exchange Commission for possible insider trading.
The combination of the Sunday Times
report and the Stock market option purchases is circumstantial
evidence that plans for a concerted military attack against Iran
have been secretly approved and covert operations have begun (read
Seymour Hersh in May 2006 reported the opposition of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff to the use of nuclear weapons against Iran.
In late April, the military
leadership, headed by General Pace, achieved a major victory
when the White House dropped its insistence that the plan for a
bombing campaign include the possible use of a nuclear device to
destroy Iran's uranium-enrichment plant at Natanz, nearly two
hundred miles south of Tehran.
Ö. "Bush and Cheney were dead
serious about the nuclear planning," the former senior
intelligence official told me. "And Pace stood up to them. Then
the world came back: 'O.K., the nuclear option is politically
Given earlier opposition by the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, it is likely that the present attack plans for Iraq
drawn up by the Pentagon don't involve the use of nuclear weapons.
In order to circumvent the regular chain of command, opposed to a
nuclear attack, it is very likely that Vice President Cheney
contrived a "National Special Security Event" that involved a
nuclear armed B-52.
This would have given him the legal
authority to place orders directly through the Secret Service to the
Air Force officers responsible for the B-52 incident.
Exposing those Responsible for the B-52 Incident
Consequently, there is considerable circumstantial evidence to argue
that the nuclear armed B-52 was part of a covert operation, outside
the regular chain of military command. The most plausible authority
responsible for this was Vice President Cheney. He very likely used
the Secret Service to take charge of a contrived National Special
Security Event involving a nuclear armed B-52 that would be flown
from Minot AFB.
The B-52 was directed to Barksdale Air
Force base where it would have conducted a covert mission to the
Middle East involving the detonation of one or more nuclear weapons
most likely in or in the vicinity of Iran. This could either have
occurred during a conventional military strike against Iran, or a
False Flag operation in the Persian Gulf region.
The leaking and discovery of the nuclear armed B-52 at Barksdale was
not part of the script. According to a confidential source of Larry
Johnson, a former counter-terrorism official from the State
Department and CIA, the discovery of the nuclear armed B-52 was
"Did someone at Barksdale try to
indirectly warn the American people that the Bush Administration
is staging nukes for Iran? I don't know, but it is a question
While the general public is likely to be
given a watered down declassified report by the Air Force over the
B-52 incident on September 14, the real investigation will reveal
that it was part of a covert operation that intended to bypass the
regular chain of command in using nuclear weapons in the Middle
East. This will likely result in a furious backlash by key figures
in the regular military chain of Command such as Secretary of
Defense, Robert Gates, and the Commander of Central Command, Admiral
William Fallon, who have direct responsibility for the conduct of
military operations in the Middle East.
The US. Air Force, the Secretary of
Defense and Commander of Central Command, is now aware of what was
likely going to be the true use of the B-52 and the responsibility
of the Office of the Vice President. It is very likely that the
exposure of the B-52 incident will lead to an indefinite hold on
plans to attack Iran given uncertainty whether other nuclear weapons
have been covertly positioned for use in the Middle East.
Significantly, public officials briefed
about the true circumstances of the B-52 incident will almost
certainly place enormous pressure on Vice President Cheney to
immediately resign if it is found that he played the role identified
above. It is therefore anticipated that in a very short time, the
public will learn that Cheney has resigned for health reasons.
The forthcoming September 14 Air Force report will likely describe
the B-52 incident as an "error" and an "isolated incident" as
foreshadowed in the September 6 press statement. This
will create some difficulty in exposing the actual role played by
Cheney and more entrenched government interests that supported him.
There will be a need for continued public awareness of the true
events behind the B-52 incident in order to expose the actual role
Only in that way can Cheney be held
accountable for his actions, and the more deeply entrenched shadow
government that tacitly supported his neo-conservative agenda be
exposed. Regardless of whether Cheney's role as the prime architect
of the B-52 incident is exposed to the public, the official backlash
against his covert operation should force his resignation. In either
case, a very dangerous public official would be removed from a
powerful position of influence.
More importantly, the world has been
spared a devastating nuclear war by courageous American airmen who
revealed the true contents of an otherwise routine B-52 landing at
Barksdale, AFB headed for a covert nuclear mission to the Middle

B-52 Bomber Incident and Insider Trading?
Was Someone Trying to Profit from a
Nuclear Attack Against Iran Before September 21?
by Michael E. Salla, M.A., Ph.D.
September 11, 2007
A B-52 bomber loaded with five (increased to six in later reports)
nuclear weapons fitted on the pylons under its wings was discovered
after sitting for ten hours on a tarmac at Barksdale AFB on 30
August 2007. Three anonymous Air Force officers leaked the news of
the incident to the Army Times newspaper which announced the
discovery on 5 September 2007. The discovery immediately gained
world wide coverage:
LINK . The "mainstream" Big
Business-owned news media has so far concentrated on the U.S. Air
Force version of events that the incident was an "error" and is now
subject to an official investigation.
Barksdale AFB is a staging post for Middle East operations and
routinely has B-52 flying missions. The B-52 incident has
subsequently led to speculation that the nuclear weapons were
intended for a covert mission to Iran, and the Office of the Vice
President was probably involved in bypassing the normal chain of
military command. The discovery of the B-52 came on top of rapidly
increasing speculation that the U.S. Bush administration is about to
authorize a massive pre-emptive aerial assault against Iran.
According to the Sunday Times, the Pentagon has prepared for
air strikes against 1,200 targets in Iran that would in three days
destroy Iran's military infrastructure,
What gives reports of a planned attack against Iran involving
nuclear weapons greater credibility is a number of mysterious August
2007 purchases of a particular type of stock called 'put options'
and 'call options' which are based on a dramatic shift in the U.S.
LINK. Essentially, a "put option"
is where an investor speculates that the market will drop
dramatically, say 30-50%, whereas a "call option" is where the
investor bets particular stocks will rise just as dramatically. If
the stock fails to dramatically shift either up or down by 21
September 2007, then the investors stands to lose much from their
investment. Such an investment is very unusual and has many market
analysts puzzled as to why anonymous investors would risk such large
sums unless they had insider information.
A similar stock market event happened in the weeks before
9/11 when anonymous investors made
great profits when they successfully 'predicted' a dramatic drop in
airline and insurances stocks, while also 'predicting' dramatic
increases in stocks of corporations producing military armaments
LINK. The investments were so
suspicious that they became subject to an insider trading
investigation by U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC)
but the no one was ever identified or charged. This was despite a
determined effort by the SEC to find who was behind the investments.
The parallels with "put" and "call option" purchases just before
9/11 has led to speculation that the August billion dollar
investments are based on insider knowledge of another 9/11 event
before 21 September. This led to predictions of a
catastrophic event about to occur in the U.S. Another explanation
for a dramatic shift in the stock market is that China will desert
the U.S. currency leading to a collapse in the U.S. dollar. Both
explanations would essentially lead to a collapse in some U.S.
stocks, while other stocks would rise.
A more plausible explanation for the mysterious billion dollar
investments is that anonymous investors had insider knowledge that
an attack against Iran would occur before 21 September 2007, and
this would involve nuclear weapons. If an aerial attack occurred
along the scale described by the Sunday Times report and involved
nukes, then the U.S. stock market would collapse as oil prices
escalated dramatically. This would spark a global recession, and
cause great hardship to many Americans who would find their
investments and jobs at risk.
The nuclear armed B-52 was likely to be used in a covert mission in
or near Iran. This mission would either have been secretly
integrated into an aerial attack against Iran's military
infrastructure, or used in a False Flag operation that would have
justified a U.S. assault on Iran. Admiral William Fallon,
Commander of U.S. Central Command, was to direct conventional
bombing operations against Iran's military infrastructure. The
covert mission, however, would have had a different chain of
command, where the Office of the Vice President was to take a
The nuclear weapons on the B-52 had adjustable yields between five
and 150 kilotons which would have made them suitable in taking out
Iran's deep underground nuclear facilities. The effect of tactical
nuclear weapons to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities would have been
devastating. Radioactive contamination would have dispersed widely
affecting the health of millions in the region. At the same time,
Iran's military and much of its civilian infrastructure would be
destroyed by conventional munitions. This would have restricted
Iran's abilities to cope with the health and humanitarian impact of
the use of nuclear weapons, and destruction of its nuclear
One question to be asked is who are the hidden investors with
insider knowledge that stood to gain billions in short term
profits from a possible attack against Iran?? This answer will give
an important clue to the long term agenda being played out, and the
principal actors involved. In the case of 9/11, similar investors
were able to evade detection from an official investigation by the
U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC
launched an unprecedented investigation that deputized "hundreds, if
not thousands, of key players in the private sector",
According to former Los Angeles Police Officer, Michael Ruppert,
what happens when individuals are deputized is that they are
sworn to secrecy on national security grounds. This was a very
effective way of keeping secret what was discovered in the SEC
investigation. What is the most plausible explanation for the kind
of investor that would have the power to subvert an SEC
investigation in this manner? The most likely answer is the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
It has been alleged that CIA front companies annually supply
funds for a black budget used to fund covert national security
The black budget has been estimated
to range between 1.1 to 1.7 trillion dollars annually which is
funneled through the CIA to various military-corporate entities
fulfilling such projects. Reportedly, a massive size black budget is
needed to fund an alleged "second" Manhattan Project. Such alleged
projects would be so deeply compartmentalized and classified, that
most members of U.S. Congress would not be informed of their
The CIA is uniquely suited to perform this function of secretly
raising revenue through the 1949 CIA Act which authorizes the CIA to
expend funds "without regard to any provisions of law" (50USC
15:1.403f.a.1.). The CIA therefore does not have to follow any
legal requirements for the funds it procures from various sources,
and funnels to military-corporate entities directly responsible for
the second Manhattan project.
The discovery of the nuclear armed B-52 is likely to lead to an
indefinite delay in plans for a pre-emptive military attack against
Iran. There is nevertheless a need to expose the principle actors
and the underlying agendas of those behind the covert plans to use
nuclear weapons. It is also important to expose anonymous investors
that intended to commercially profit from such an attack before
September 21, and had insider knowledge of this. Former U.S.
Eisenhower had warned that an informed
public is the best safeguard against unwarranted abuses of executive
power. Arguably, a pre-emptive attack against Iran that
does not have the support of the American people or U.S. Congress,
would qualify for such an abuse.
It appears that the period leading up to September 21, 2007 was to
witness a pre-emptive attack against Iran, involving nuclear weapons
loaded on at least one B-52 bomber. The humanitarian cost in terms
of radioactive fallout, and casualties from the destruction of
Iran's military and much of its civilian infrastructure would have
been catastrophic for the Persian Gulf region (nuclear fallout would
also subsequently circle the globe, which would be followed by the
proliferation of related diseases and environmental problems
adversely effecting all of humanity and other living species on
Furthermore, the U.S. and global economy
would have gone into a deep free fall in the event of dramatic
increases in oil prices and further instability in the Middle East.
Out of this planned tragedy, anonymous investors with possible
CIA connections and insider knowledge, had the opportunity to
plan for commercial profit. It is further alleged that financial
proceeds would have been used to secretly fund an alleged second
Manhattan Project that would-piggy back on the military
execution of an aggressive neo-conservative agenda against Iran, in
the Middle East geo-political milieu.
Hopefully, the discovery of the nuclear armed B-52 has averted
such a tragedy for the moment. Now is the time to consider the
wisdom to consider allegations associated with an apparently aborted
pre-emptive strike against Iran, and to make accountable all those
who are responsible.
