Dude, Where's My Launch Code?

If this is true, it's astonishing:
Bill Clinton lost the card containing launch codes for a nuclear strike for "months" during his presidency, according to a top military leader's memoir. 
Gen. Hugh Shelton, who served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Clinton, makes the claim in his new book "Without Hesitation," ABC News first reported Thursday. 
"At one point during the Clinton administration, the codes were actually missing. That's a big deal, a gargantuan deal," Shelton writes in the book.
Stories like this sure make me sleep easy at night! 

Thanks to The Greek for the pointer.
