Maybe Louisiana is just jinxed?

(Image taken from front of Drudgereport.com)
Apparently anytime something is supposed to go in or out (or not) of Louisiana, be it Federal assistance, money, political careers, something goes horribly, horribly wrong.

Take this beautiful story for example. The Air Force accidentally misplaced 5 Nuclear Warheads!
The B-52 was loaded with Advanced Cruise Missiles, part of a Defense Department effort to decommission 400 of the ACMs. But the nuclear warheads should have been removed at Minot before being transported to Barksdale, the officers said. The missiles were mounted onto the pylons of the bomber’s wings.
Now we all know we live in a different time... This is the "Post 9/11 Time", that we are reminded of so frequently by certain politicians. A time in which our military is a finely tuned machine, capable of destroying "Terrah" in all its forms, while running a clean, non-torture prone existence here and abroad...

How the hell could they have "accidentally" shipped nuclear warheads somewhere else, essentially losing them for a stretch of time???

It never ceases to amaze me how incompetent certain organizations can be...

They managed to misplace dignity, the law, and the constitution, why not a few nuclear warheads?

Good call.

In hindsight, this was pretty damn easy comparably :)

I wouldnt say they misplaced law and the consititution. They took a gigantic shit on it and buried it under a mound of dirt.

I cant explain the nukes, other than its the USAF
