The Presidents Who Forgot Their Nuclear Launch Codes - Dropping the Nuclear Football



Arranged in a column and printed on a plastic card, a series of mostly meaningless codes gives the President of the United States power over the fate of the world. Should the protective sleeve guarding the card ever be cracked open, these “Gold Codes” would be exposed. The president would then be tasked with selecting the one true code by memory in order to confirm his identity and authority to authorize a nuclear attack. The Gold Codes must always be in possession of the President. Yet, in the early 2000s, President Bill Clinton apparently spent months without his… and the missing card would never be found…

Dark Docs brings you cinematic short military history documentaries featuring the greatest battles and most heroic stories of modern warfare, covering World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and special forces operations in between.

  1. I DON'T THINK IT MATTERS VERY MUCH AS ONE PHONE CALL TO THOSE CARRYING THEM COULD DO IT VERY WELL. SADLY WATCHING "BY DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT" AN IDIOT WAR MONGER ENDED UP SETTING OFF THOSE CODES THANKS TO RIP TORN'S PART. I REALLY DON'T BELIEVE ANY POLITICIAN COULD MAKE THAT DECISION WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY…EVEN THE STUPID SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR!!!

  2. Will someone tell me why there’s a “QAnon” advisory posted by YouTube on this video? That bullshit! There’s was nothing “QAnon” on here. The possible offense was former President Trump’s picture. It’s clear which side Google/YouTube is on. They can shove it. DarkDocs, you keep doing what you’re doing! You’re the best on YouTube!

  3. The fact is there are no nuclear codes.
    It's just a red haring. A misdirection, A slight of hand, A parlor trick to verify communication.
    It's similar to the fact that Star Trek is not a TV show, it's an indoctrination.
    That's all the US is …. one big lie.

  4. Chain of command goes from President to Secretary of Defense, not Chairman of JCS…and it's no surprise that the codes were lost when Slick Willie was busy running around, though to get away from Hitlery one could easily and understand and agree with keeping away from that satanic b10tch

  5. The football is such a bad name. I always picture some terriost or mad man Tackling the President and grabbing the Football and Running to the goal line. I hope it has decoys,tracking devices,locks and fail safe defensive bomb or something on it
