The Air Forces two star general in charge of the units responsible for its 450 nuclear missiles has been fired due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment.
Maj. Gen. Michael Carey has been removed from command of the 20th Air Force, according to an Air Force statement. That command is responsible for the three wings that maintain control of the 450 intercontinental ballistic missiles scattered in missile silos across the northern plains.
Lt. Gen. James Kowalski, the commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, made the decision because of what the statement said was a loss of trust and confidence. etc...
Kodlick would not specifically reveal where the personal misbehavior may have occurred or may have consisted of though he said it did not involve criminal behavior.
Kowalskis command is responsible for two-thirds of the nations nuclear triad, including Air Force nuclear missiles and long-range bombers.
Kodlick explained that personal behavior is important in nuclear commands because its a position of great trust and responsibility. He added that the nuclear deterrence mission is one of great focus and discipline. Personal behavior is vital to that, especially from a commander.
Earlier this week President Obama relieved of command the number two officer at U.S. Strategic Command, which among other things oversees the militarys nuclear forces. Vice Admiral James Giardina had earlier been suspended from that command following a criminal probe into his potential use of counterfeit poker chips at an Iowa casino. etc...

What's going on???
Breathing while hetero...and understanding the Constitution, no doubt.
Do you remember someone talking about “stars falling”?
This is almost an everyday occurrence, now.
Another Executive Saturday Night Massacre, except the media won’t cover this one.....
Wonder if any were overheard expressing dismay at the CIC?
Some other threads on the topic if anyone is interested in reading the comments thereon:
Air Force general in charge of ICBMs to be fired ^
General in Charge of Nuclear Missiles Is Fired
General in Charge of Nuclear Missiles Is Fired ^
Maybe they failed the “litmus” test.
More like will you fire on American citizens...
What’s going on???
The NSA and John Brennan purging the leadership of the Armed Forces and replacing them with Obamanistas...
They need to get a transvestite in there to command.
If Obama’s name was Joe Stalin You could call these incidents Stalin’s purges of the military leadership.Lets hope this doesn’t continue because old Joe Stalin left Russia damned near defenseless against the Nazis when they Stated Operation Barberossa.
Did he tell someone he believed in Jesus?
Maybe he refused to say he would shoot US citizens.
Or maybe he called someone queer.
Maybe even someone who is openly queer.
Whether they did or not, their replacements will have to take the test to get the promotion.
And yet Holder and Sebelius still have their jobs.
Obama wants his own personal junta in control.
This is very straightforward stuff. Ask Morsi, or Erdogan, or Khamenei.
A pre-world war purge of all competent top brass.
It’s a tradition, Stalin did it before WWII.
Hostile forces to the US are going to be put in charge of those weapons. That would be my guess. They have groomed replacements for anyone with a real allegiance to the united states.
Hesitated when Obama asked if he would have a problem nuking Red States.
The new gay army?
Well, BHO2 is a Muslim Marxist and he has found himself in a bind with the Congressional Republicans. Sen.Cruz is NOT going to let up on the pressure.
What to do?
BHO2 is advancing his timetable, his schedule on declaring martial law.
I believe he has no care over how to do it. This man loves no one except himself.
I found out just this morning that the Federal Department of Human Services sent out messages to 25 States’ Governors that the EBT system was going down in their state and provided 25 different reasons.
The EBT shutdown is being orchestrated from the White House.
Let the riots begin!
“The gutting and hollowing-out of the US Military continues.” - Mark Levin
Are you being sarcastic?
Yeah. Really stupid if it actually happened that way.
A Stalinesque purge?
That’s what I want to know. What the heck is going on?
Bingo. And we are seeing the start of the global government taking over. Placing the right people in the right places. Won’t be long now.
Obama’s purge. Worked well for Uncle Joe didn’t it?
This is in the light of the Tyrant’s treason, over and over.
Soon all US Generals will willingly murder
and nuke Americans for the Tyrant who
has weaponized and assisted al Qaeda/MB.
Fershure....things we never thought we'd see in our lifetimes, but are seeing daily -- all the way down to park rangers.
I'm glad I'm 66, and not 26.
This would not surprise me, and would actually answer some of my WTH? questions.
I wonder how a person would check out the facts regarding how the POTUS is supposed to be arrested when it becomes known that he is engaging in war against America.
This would sure explain why Obama is so pissed off at everybody and doesn’t even try to hide his contempt for the American people, the military, or the Constitution. The combination of Janet Napolitano’s comments and the D Congresswoman who said that an EMP-type event was 100% certain raised huge red flags to me, as did the planned early-November drill for the power grids all being out.
Where was Obama on 9-11? What day was the Navy Yard shooting? Have they published the names and ranks of those killed that day, yet? They certainly have had time to notify the relatives by now.
My bet is that if anything like this happened, somebody on the Joint Chiefs of Staff informed Obama of the threat. One of my first thoughts when I read that article was that it would be encouraging if the Joint Chiefs of Staff did ANYTHING besides provide mouth service to Obama. After the Night-of-the-Long-Knives stuff that happened shortly after Benghazi, I think Obama can be pretty sure that at least one of them will betray the country and protect the Foreign Enemy Combatant in our White House instead.
Is this report credible?
The Air Force stripped an unprecedented 17 officers of their authority to control - and, if necessary, launch - nuclear missiles after a string of unpublicized failings, including a remarkably dim review of their unit's launch skills. The group's deputy commander said it is suffering "rot" within its ranks.
Failure to embrace the homosexuals in the military.
450 nuke tipped missiles ...
that’s quiet a bit short from what I remember while in washdc in the 90s
He will also go and kill some terrorists, maybe attack Venezuela to get his poll numbers up higher and then to the real objective... remember the tanks facing the Kremlin during the end of the Soviet Era? Well, how about American tanks facing the House of Reps directed by the White House.
Obama will try to arrest those who tried to take the American economy "hostage" and tried to force negotiations with a "gun at their head". They will either exit the House or Obama will take matters into his own hands.
Obama will stop at nothing. He will tell the American people he had to do it to re-open the government and avoid the default.
Clinton did the same
Stalinbama is starting his purge. Anyone who might disobey his orders to attack Americans or use nukes in support of alQaeda is being released.
The Navy Yard shooting was on Sept 16th. The NYT lists the victims at http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/09/17/us/washington-navy-yard-victims.html?_r=0 It claims that they were all civilians, though some had formerly been in the military.
According to the article, what stopped them from doing the 9-11 nuke attack?
At http://voices.suntimes.com/early-and-often/sweet/president-obama-daily-guidance-and-press-schedule-sept-11-2013-remembering-9-11/ it shows that as of Sept 10th, Obama’s schedule for 9-11 had press events in the morning and his afternoon was supposed to be doing a “service project” in the “DC area”. Leaves a lot of leeway for him to slip into the bunker they’ve built for him...
I wonder who the sources for that article are supposed to be.
Hard to say.
Witnesses who were there in the building said there was more than one shooter. The FBI came up with a video that follows the ‘official’ killer as he entered and moved about the building. But...there was a janitor shot dead in the alleyway outside and along the building, indicating there was more than one person killing people at that time period.
The fact that too much effort is being expended NOT providing the truth about what happened there is of itself telling.
I don’t know if this is even relevant, but an aquaintance who enlisted in the military had to sign a “classified” addenda to his contract promising that he would obey when ordered to shoot Americans.
As a veteran I can tell you I never signed anything like that 30 years ago. The fact it was “classified” tells us that BHO2 is devious, making the young and impressionable sign a contract agreeing to follow an illegal order.
People who followed the illegal orders of Nazi Germany were hanged after being tried at Nuremberg half a century ago.
Obama purge of the military?
And no other general staff or field grade officers would know about this, or do anything about this?
I will agree to disagree with you on this one.
Also, red states? Blue states? Or a proportionate mix?
