Pentagon Pulls Nuke Document; Mirrors Available, September 22, 2005, The MemoryBlog.

An unclassified draft of a US nuclear doctrine review that spells out conditions under which US commanders might seek approval to use nuclear weapons has been removed from a Pentagon website, a spokesman said Monday.

Lawrence DiRita, the Pentagon spokesman, said the document was taken down “because even in an unclassified world this is not the kind of thing you want flying around the Internet.”

  1. …this is not the kind of thing you want flying around the Internet.

    Ideally, this is not the kind of thing that you want to draft in the first place!

    Although this doc got saved, others aren’t so lucky. That’s why you need many copies like our Founders suggested!
