Oops Part II, Electric Boogaloo

The USAF is having some trouble with that whole accountability thing:
Instead of sending helicopter batteries, the United States shipped four electrical fuses for Minuteman nuclear missile warheads to Taiwan, a mistake that was discovered only last week — a year and a half after the erroneous shipment, Pentagon officials disclosed on Tuesday.
There's more here, but really, that's all you need to know. The whole Minot thing was bad enough, but at least that was plausible. This just makes us look like the Keystone Kops. Not that it doesn't happen fairly often, but it's still ridiculous. I'm not sure I even want to know how this happened.
