The law of unintended consequences wants to argue that sh¡t happens. History shows us that it has. ¿But is it history if it’s been kept locked up? Who knew about all these bomb incidents?
After enlisting (I was drafted, but joined to beat the draft, and stay out of Vietnam), I was sent to Spain. I learned after arriving that the US had lost three 70 kiloton nuclear bombs over Spain. – one fell in the ocean, and was never recovered. Now I learn that there was also a total meltdown in Morocco, which was kept secret. And it gets worse, according to this hair-raising report from Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. (If you want to read about the bombs lost in Spain, click here.)
