Hillary’s comments in last night’s debate about nuclear response times caught a lot of people off-guard. Here’s what she said:
“The bottom line on nuclear weapons is when the President gives the order it must be followed. There’s about 4 minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so. And that’s why 10 people who have had that awesome responsibility have come out and, in an unprecedented way, said they would not trust Donald Trump with the nuclear codes or to have his finger on the nuclear button.”
To summarize, Hillary Clinton just told any potential enemy out there A) how close they need to be to the target to launch their nuclear weapons (submarine, bomber) at current delivery system speeds and B) how fast future delivery systems need to travel in order to provide enough standoff while negating any retaliatory action by the President of the United States.
According to Heavy, this announcement is potentially a violation of operational security protocols (OPSEC).

In fact, even the Hillary campaign staff seemingly scrambled to coverup the blatant mistake by sending the following tweet that says a launch “can take as little as four minutes” versus her debate response which was far more definitive. Also notice the time stamp of the tweet which was sent during the debate and shortly after Hillary made her comments.
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.

Ironically, these comments came from Hillary as she was questioning Trump’s fitness to be President.
