Wow... there is more here than meets the eye...
This is no accident coming on the heels of Robert Salas' testimony at the Citizen Hearing on the Minot shutdown. Seriously, do you really think all those officers suddenly went incompetent... give me a break.

Washington (CNN) -- In an unprecedented action, an Air Force commander has stripped 17 of his officers of their authority to control and launch nuclear missiles.
The 17 are being sent to undergo 60 to 90 days of intensive refresher training on how to do their jobs. The action comes after their unit performed poorly on an inspection and one officer was investigated for potential compromise of nuclear launch codes, according to Lt. Col. John Dorrian, an Air Force spokesman. - CNN International
