Ex-chairman of the joint chiefs of staff Gen Hugh Shelton made the claim in a new book.Holy crap. Der ist da der Zuständige.
According to Gen Shelton's book, Without Hesitation, an official had gone to check one month and been told by the aide that the codes were on the president's person but that he was in an important meeting and could not be disturbed.Was für eine großartige Monty Python Nummer!
A different official went to do the same check a month later and was told a similar story. When it came time to change the codes, an aide admitted they had been missing for months.
Update: Für den historischen Kontext: Die Launchcodes für die US-Minuteman-Raketen war bis 1977 "00000000". (Danke, Thomas)
