Having once been one of three people ( none of us the ships Captain) on the USS Biddle DLG 34 two of which would be required to actually launch a nuclear weapon, and before that I was working in the Pentagon on the system that provided all the nuclear targeting information to the military. I can assure you that there are a lot of layer between the President and launch vehicle, and no where is only one person on each layer.

I bigger worry would be could we accually launch if the President said to?
