An In These Times investigation reveals that "the Pentagon has lost track of the mother of all weapons, a hydrogen bomb ... designed to incinerate Moscow." The article tells a 40-year old story of a training mishap, which resulted in dropping the bomb into the shallow waters of Warsaw Sound, near the mouth of the Savannah River. The reporter cites Pentagon's internal memos showing that the bomb has never been found, and that the military has recognized this as a potential threat. "There exists the possibility of accidental discovery of the uncovered weapon through dredging or construction in the probable impact area," states one of the memos. Other declassified documents, used in the story, reveal incidents with H-bombs accidentally dropped in foreign lands, which the Pentagon has covered up.
