Top-secret locations of 150 US nukes in Europe accidentally leaked in NATO report
The United States and its allies in the Nato military alliance never disclose the locations of the nuclear arsenal but it appears the six sites have inadvertently disclosed.
A draft version of the document entitled “A new era for nuclear deterrence? Modernisation, arms control and allied nuclear forces” was published earlier this year.
But Belgian newspaper De Morgen spotted that it contained details about the nuke sites.
A section on the nuclear arsenal read: “These bombs are stored at six US and European bases — Kleine Brogel in Belgium, Büchel in Germany, Aviano and Ghedi-Torre in Italy, Volkel in The Netherlands, and Incirlik in Turkey.”
The study was written by a Canadian senator Joseph Day for the Defense and Security Committee of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
The final version of the report has now been published online with specific reference to where bombs are stored deleted.
