"I was 100% sure that it was the right decision, that it was real", the warrant officer, who maintained his anonymity, told "NBC Nightly News" Friday.

Retired Brig. Gen. Bruce Oliveira, who spearheaded the internal investigation, said the employee had performance issues in the past, and there were at least two incidents where he mistakenly thought a drill was an actual event.

Miyagi accepted full responsibility for the incident and the actions of his employees, Logan said.

He added that he thinks the "military should handle this job - missile notifications for Hawaii". Dan and Paula. I think a lot of people are learning a lot from this.
