6. I would like to know who pushed the button.

He pushed Trump right off the front page.

7. Wayland S. Eberhardt was not fired in 1971 -

when he made a similar mistake that sent a similar warning to the entire country.

(It took about the same amount of time to formally cancel that incorrect emergency broadcast.)

8. I agree

O tolerance, of all jobs. We have a nut who might be in a bad mood, not playing golf and we all could have been killed.

Give it to the USAF, where NORAD is. If they can track Santa, let them track this. Damn.

10. Of course it depends, but the consequences of this mistake are too horrible to contemplate

9. First, I need to see a video demonstration of the "pushed the wrong button" scenario.

That story stinks.
