Gates breaks out the broom

We've tried to follow the 'loose nukes' story as much as can be done with the haphazard reporting available, and the closed mouth tactics of the Air Force. Prior posts, from first to last here, here, here, here and here. The affair has always had a surreal quality that blends in nicely with other events like 9/11 and the anthrax letters.

SecDef Gates, at least, has showed his concern over the whole matter by firing the AF Chief of Staff and the Secretary of the Air Force. I would suspect that this will put a stone atop the affair, and it will drift away down the memory hole.
