HELENA - Air Force officials say two units responsible for the 150 nuclear missiles in Montana have failed recent inspections.

Military officials say there is no threat to the public and that the units at Malmstrom Air Force Base are still performing their missions while correcting the problems.

The 341st Missile Wing and 16th Munitions Squadron received "unsatisfactory" ratings in February from Air Force inspectors evaluating their ability to carry out their mission.

Neither Global Strike Command, which oversees the 341st Missile Wing, nor Air Force Materiel Command, which oversees the 16th Munitions Squadron, would detail the problems that were found in the nuclear surety inspections, citing security reasons.
