http://www.ordnance.org/fuzes.htm "If the pilot selects the option mode of delivery, both the arming wire and the option wire are pulled out, initiating the option time mode of the fuze. If only the option time wire is pulled out on airborne release, the fuze will dud. Both the fuze arming wire and option wire must be pulled out for the fuze to function in the option mode." So if the "option time wire" ONLY came away then the bomb goes into "option mode" but it no go boom. And so the first thing a disposal expert will do is "put that wire back in" before the OTHER wire can come out while he's standing there next to the bomb. That does tend to concentrate the mind, which is probably why the guy talked about the "M273" rather than the "M904".
