Okay Conspiracy Theorists, Break Out The Tinfoil Hats - Nuke Solider Found Dead

This one should start - if it already hasn't - churning big-time out there in conspiracy world.

And, it could be argued, that this may be a candidate for one of those "Degrees of Separation" things ...

The Garlic indulged in the news at the beginning of the month, when it was reported the Air Force, in error, flew five (and by some reports, six) nuclear warheads from North Dakota to the Barksdale Air Force base in Louisiana (see Top Ten Cloves: Reasons How Air Force Mistakenly Flew 5 Nuclear Warheads Across Country)

Soon thereafter, former CIA Intelligence Officer Larry Johnson posted on his blog - Staging Nukes for Iran?

And there was a nice, little caveat in it;

Barksdale Air Force Base is being used as a jumping off point for Middle East operations. Gee, why would we want cruise missile nukes at Barksdale Air Force Base. Can’t imagine we would need to use them in Iraq. Why would we want to preposition nuclear weapons at a base conducting Middle East operations?
Then, this morning, surfing around, The Garlic espied this story;

Airman that supplied security for the 6 missing nukes dead

And this linked to a bare-bones report: Minot Airman dies while on leave

As the old saying goes, just because you're paranoid, doesn't necessarily mean that aren't after you ...
