When Bill Clinton was President, the "button" was missing for 4 months. (the nuclear codes were misplaced) Meanwhile, tell me more about Trump and his Button Madness.

Yes, that means that if President Clinton needed to launch nukes on short notice... he couldn't have.

slightly different version of a similar (same?) issue in "Dereliction of Duty" by one of the football carriers.

yeah, that was when Clinton left the football carrier behind. THIS is a case where a key component (the "credit card") was misplaced for 4 months. And nobody knew it. The story doesn't say HOW it happened. But Clinton was the boss and had ultimate responsibility.

Should point out that this is not the same story as the time Bill Clinton left the "football" carrier behind.

actually, he talked about both events... IIRC, he was the one who was first told the card was missing. interesting book, all around.
