This is from ’60 Minutes’ from more than two years ago:

Floppy disks and nuclear missiles?
APRIL 26, 2014, 6:25 PM|Remember floppy disks? They’re used by one of the computers that would receive a presidential order to launch a nuclear missile. And, as Lesley Stahl reports, they’re the really big, old kind of floppy disks. Watch Stahl’s full report “America’s Missile Fields” to hear why that might be a good thing.

The CNN article doesn’t state a huge benefit of the old disks which ’60 Minutes’ does in their full segment, there’s no need to worry about online hackers.¬†and not easily copied.
