On Thursday, we reported that Democrat Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, discussed the amount of time between a presidential order to launch nuclear weapons and the actual launch. This didn’t sit well with the military, which called the information “extremely classified.”
The Clinton campaign even disclosed the information on Twitter for the entire planet to see:
When the president gives the order to launch a nuclear weapon, that’s it. The officer has to launch. It can take as little as four minutes.

CNN’s Barbara Starr said the Pentagon wouldn’t officially comment on her statement since it took place during a presidential campaign. But, she added, a number of officials told her off-camera they were not happy.
“We went to the military this morning and asked them. A military spokesman told us that they do not discuss operational timelines for launching nuclear weapons,” Starr said. “This is some of the most classified information. I asked Defense Secretary Ash Carter at a press conference earlier today. He declined to answer the question because it involved politics.”
“Is it really classified? There’s a lot of open-source information about, you know, publicly available information on the internet about what is involved in launching nuclear weapons, and when we asked the Clinton campaign, they sent us a number of citations of that publicly available information,” Starr added.
“But here is the bottom line: the U.S. military does not discuss the precise specifics of the time frames of launching nuclear weapons that, by all accounts, is extremely classified,” Starr continued. “And if you know information to be classified and you’re a government official, even if it’s in the open source, even if it’s on the internet, you are not supposed to disclose it.”
But Clinton did.
Here’s video of her comments:
“The bottom line is the U.S. military [is] not especially thrilled to be discussing in precise detail what it takes to launch nuclear weapons,” Starr said.
“With 70 million people watching,” CNN’s Brooke Baldwin added.
