Eric Schlosser Explains America’s Nuclear Weapons Chain Of Command

Who has the authority to launch a nuclear weapon if the President of the United States has been killed? Just how far down does the chain of command go within the United States military? In this video, investigative journalist Eric Schlosser recounts the chilling history of American nuclear authority from the Cold War to the present. Additionally, he explains that the bizarre nuclear launch scenario that is portrayed in the 1964 Stanley Kubrick film “Dr. Strangelove” wasn’t very far-fetched at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The scenario shown in the movie "Wargames" was based on an actual incident. There was no outside hacker, but a training simulation was indeed accidentally fed into the main control system at Cheyenne Mountain and almost resulted in a nuclear launch.
