Skip to comments.An ugly Air Force cover up: Quinton Keel not fired, but promoted and allowed to resign

Instead of being fired, Quinton Keel the Dover AFB mortuary supervisor who dumped 9/11 victims remains in landfill was promoted and allowed to resign after being promoted.
Keel whose ghoulish mistreatment of the remains of our fallen military heroes was brought to light by whistleblowers has been force out only because was caught retaliating against them.
According to Air Force sources Keel, showed no regard for our honored dead, and no remorse when his willful mishandling of our war heroes bodies was revealed by courageous whistleblowers. Instead of contrition Keel systematically retaliated against those who exposed him.
Keel has been accused of lying to authorities investigating charges that, among other things he ordered the arm of a fallen Marine be sawed off in order to force his body into a uniform!
Investigation also revealed that on Keels orders the remains of victims of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon, and Iraq and Afghanistan War dead were merely incinerated then dumped in a landfill in Virginia.
While it is not clear what retaliatory measures Keel directed at the courageous and honest employees who reported his despicable conduct, investigators acknowledged they are also questioning two other supervisors as coconspirators in the ongoing retaliation.
Aside from Keel another man who should be sacked and not even given a chance to resign is Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. Norton Schwartz.
When news of Keels atrocious conduct surfaced, Schwartz not only failed to fire him but actually created a new GS-13 pay grade position ($85,500) for him with the cynical title of Air Force Survivor Assistance Program Manager.
Now Keel will be able to ride off into the sunset and retire on a fat federal pension paid for by us, without regard for how he did his job or.....

And what would you have done with the small bits and pieces of bone and dust that could not be identified????
So you’d throw them into a landfill?
He must have something on someone.
Punishment for him should fit the crime.
Bury him in a landfill.
Considering that you could in 5 min get the cost of a proper burial for them whipped up on FR, I’d say burying them in one memorial plot with a marker, I’d say something like that.
I question why you are on a site like this with a question like that.
should be incinerated. there are cremation vendors in Dover
who could do this, and ashes could be respectfully scattered at sea or some hallowed place.
i would not go to the extreme of horsewhipping him, but
retiring in grade seems fair to me assuming that this was his only misstep. promoting him? no, that should hot have happened.
Expect more morons with statements like that to appear later, Norm.
They apparently never heard of the mass graves of te unidentified from WWI and WWII.
Nor the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
In Nifsters world, soldiers and others who don’t get ID’d apparently are trash to be thrown out.
“and Iraq and Afghanistan War dead were merely incinerated then dumped in a landfill in Virginia. “
These were already ID’d soldiers who were supposed to have been buried.
Oh, and the line I pulled about the war dead from Iraq and Afghanistan is in the article.
Other threads on this deal with families expecting a proper burial only to find out this was how their loved ones were ‘taken care of’ by this creep.
Anybody who has never worked with dead bodies the consistency of soup should try it before casting stones.
“And what would you have done with the small bits and pieces of bone and dust that could not be identified????”
Cremated and buried at Sea with respect? Or maybe in one mass grave at Arlington instead of another few politicians and donors? Or HEY, how about instead of a ground zero mosque, we have a ground zero columbarium?
Or how about mix in their ashes with concrete and build a runway ,,and launch B-52s from it.
I have all kinds of better ideas better than a biohazard bag in with the potato peels and baby diapers at the landfill.
And yes, mass graves can be respectful. Look at photos of Piskariovskoye Memorial Cemetery in St Petersburg Russia. 186 mounds, containing the remains of about 420,000 killed when the Nazis invaded.
But maybe a landfill better fits the Bush/Obama goal. After all, unlike the Jews after the holocaust, we are SUPPOSED to forget.
The last thing in the world they want is a sailor at sea, getting angry at islam when he watches yet ANOTHER burial detail occur. The last thing they want is a mound at Arlington, with a brass plaque explaining that these people died at the hands of islam.
Oh, no doubt. That level of abject stupidity usually comes with ‘friends’ willing to defend it.
Though I should no longer be surprised after the PDS/Paul/Romney Zotnarock, I guess even conservative websites are cursed with a DU level intellect from some posters.
And as demonstrated most aptly, like a cat with a Cheezeburger, Nifster ‘HaZ’ it.
I KNOW you want to take this back - at least I hope you do!
From what I’ve read this is not his first problem.
I know better than to try to appease haters.
I understand that, but that decomposed and mangled flesh was once human. If it could be transported to a landfill, it could have been shown respect and buried/cremated.
How many dead bodies have you dealt with?
Nobody is hating on the body handlers in the morgue. We all realize thats no fun.
But absolutely yes, it is entirely justifiable to be harsh towards the decision makers in the front offices who decided where to dispose of those last remains. The workers at the tables don’t exactly freelance that decision.
