    US presidential nuclear codes 'lost for months'
    President Clinton in 2000 The codes were allegedly misplaced during 2000

    The codes used by the president to launch a nuclear strike were mislaid for months during the Clinton administration, the former highest-ranking US officer has said.
    According to Gen Shelton's book, Without Hesitation, an official had gone to check one month and been told by the aide that the codes were on the president's person but that he was in an important meeting and could not be disturbed.

    A different official went to do the same check a month later and was told a similar story. When it came time to change the codes, an aide admitted they had been missing for months.

    I guess Bush II wasn't the only admin filled with fail.
