The Associated Press has learned that that eight generals have been disciplined as a result of the mistaken shipment of fuses for nuclear warheads to Taiwan.

Defense officials say the six Air Force and two Army generals were given disciplinary letters that vary in seriousness but can often end careers or hopes of promotion. The officers range rank from one- to three-star generals.

The officers are mainly in logistical jobs and were involved to some degree in the mistaken shipment to Taiwan of four electrical fuses for ballistic missile nuclear warheads in 2006.
