The US nuclear missile launch code was set at 00000000 for about 20 years, according to Dr. Bruce Blair, former Minuteman ICBM launch control officer and president of the World Security Institute. This began during the administration of President Kennedy, when he ordered that all nuclear missile sites be secured with a device that ensure a missile could only be launched with the right eight digit code, which can only be authorized by the president. Mark Sovel and Jackie Koppell discuss the extreme danger behind this nuclear neglect, in this clip from the Lip News.
