Air Force nuke officers caught up in big cheating scandal

By Tim McCaughan

The U.S. Air Force's nuclear command has been rocked by a cheating scandal involving nearly three dozen officers.

Cheating on a proficiency exam involving intercontinental missile launch officers at the Global Strike Command at Malmstrom Air Force base in Montana apparently was carried out around last August and September by text and appears to be the largest incident of its kind, the Pentagon said.

"This is absolutely unacceptable behavior and it is completely contrary to our core values in the Air Force and as everybody here knows the Number One core value for us is integrity," Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James told reporters.

Officials said the nuclear arsenal is secure.

    Imagine getting hundreds of people flooding your inbox on autopilot, 24/7 with 100 percent commissions of $500 a day. This is made thanks to traffic conveyed on autopilot over various “viral tiers”. More details: https://bit.ly/2YfQFcC

    The whole military and civilian workforce in DoD is nothing but cheaters and liars. It's probably going to take a complete bankruptcy of the government before they pull the plug on this gigantic fraud.

    Why are they targeting this group of officers should be the question. What is going on behind the scenes that we are not told about? Let's face the reality, everybody in Washington D.C. has cheated to get there, why else would they spend a million dollars to get a job when that job only pays 400k a year, if they knew they were not going to get slush kick backs in the profit margin. I was in the military and there were numerous reports that were "corrected" before going up the chain and it was considered the norm, look good on paper and protect the chain of command. Why all the sudden interest in this group of servicemen, and why at this particular time?
    "I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.
    So, who is the source?
    Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”
    Understand, this is not coming from Alex Jones or Jesse Ventura, or from anyone else the left often dismisses with great ease.
    Garrow is a well-respected activist and has spent much of his life rescuing infant girls from China, babies who would be killed under that country’s one-child policy. He was also nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for his work."

    Food for thought...

    It is a little more worrisome to me that they cheat on exams than the original story. It seems smart to retest them and see if they learned on the job or if they took naps. Really a mass firing and hiring in this area is most worrisome of all.
