I thought that was the point. According to the UL, the military was required to add the extra "security" step, but since they prioritized a quick launch process, they deliberately chose the simplest (and correspondingly least secure) code possible. The code wasn't chosen for security (i.e., because it was unlikely to be guessed), it was chosen to be easy to remember and punch in--and 00000000 fulfills that purpose quite well.
