WASHINGTON The Air Force fired the general in charge of its nuclear missiles on Friday, just two days after a Navy admiral with top nuclear weapons responsibilities was sacked. Both men are caught up in investigations of alleged personal misconduct, adding to a cascade of turmoil inside the nations nuclear weapons force.
The Air Force removed Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, a 35-year veteran, from his command of 20th Air Force, responsible for all 450 of the services intercontinental ballistic missiles. Carey, who took his post in Wyoming in June 2012, will be reassigned pending the outcome of an investigation into personal misbehavior, the service said.
The Air Force would not specify what Carey is alleged to have done wrong, but two officials with knowledge of the investigation indicated that it was linked to alcohol use.
They said it was not related to the performance or combat readiness of ICBM units or to his stewardship of the force.
Removing senior officers in the nuclear force is rare but has happened twice this week.
On Wednesday the Navy said Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, the second-in-charge at U.S. Strategic Command, was fired amid an investigation of gambling issues. He was demoted from three- to two-star rank and reassigned to a Navy staff job until the investigation is completed.

Hard to find one is Kolowaski I think
wow...so obummercare is all illegal as all of his actions while in office. This is the biggest lie perpetrated on the world probably ever..not including satan’s to Adam, of course.
While the proposed scenario is possible, I don’t know if it is accurate or rather a hasty rush to CT.
Those reportedly killed included NAVFAC civilian engineers, not NCIS or SpecOps or Joint level operatives.
The situation does cast doubt upon the veracity of this Administration to defend the Constitution of the US.
IMHO, legislation should be passed disallowing spouses or former familial members from holding positions of authority within about 10 levels of the Commander in Chief or possible change of command.
I truly believe he is going to permit Russia or another country nuke us and refuse to retaliate. I think the US is going to get hit by Obama’s permission and conspiracy.
According to Air Force Magazine online:
.” This action came after allegations against Carey of “personal misbehavior” during a temporary duty assignment. Information Kowalski received from personnel who traveled with Carey prompted Kowalski this summer to engage the Air Force’s inspector general to look into the matter, said Stefanek.
Happened on a TDY, what happens on TDY stays there ( I think that is the saying). I saw a lot of people come to Korea and hit the bars and prostitutes like there was no tomorrow. But this guy had horse handlers who appeared to have turned him in.
