Is this not evidence towards always keeping humans in the line of command regarding weapons of any type. If this had been automated then things could have been much different.

For more like this, you should check out 'Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident' by Eric Schlosser - truly scary stuff...

I live about 20 or so miles as the crow flies from Damascus. I was just a kid then, but I remember an Air Force enlisted guy that lived down the street being injured in aftermath. At the time I had no idea it was as bad as it was, but I guess few civilians would have. It truly is scary stuff!

Good Lord, after reading Schlosser's "Command & Control", you won't be able to sleep at night.
