Default The Old Soviet Doomsday Machine and other fine blunders in Nuclear past/present.

Inside the Apocalyptic Soviet Doomsday Machine

Scary stuff.

I do like this particular tidbit though from our Nuclear past:

When: 1960s
What: Midway through the Cold War, American leaders began to worry that a rogue US officer might launch a small, unauthorized strike, prompting massive retaliation. So in 1962, Robert McNamara ordered every nuclear weapon locked with numerical codes.
Effect: None. Irritated by the restriction, Strategic Air Command set all the codes to strings of zeros. The Defense Department didn't learn of the subterfuge until 1977.
