WASHINGTON (AP) — The Air Force said Friday it fired the two-star general from command of its nuclear missiles in response to an investigation into alleged personal misbehavior. It was the second sacking this week of a senior commander of nuclear forces.

Maj. Gen. Michael Carey was removed from command of the 20th Air Force, which is responsible for three wings of intercontinental ballistic missiles — a total of 450 missiles at three bases across the country, according to an Air Force spokesman, Brig. Gen. Les Kodlick.


General In Charge Of ICBMS To Be Fired

WTF is happening?
This is the second high ranking military officer in charge of U.S. nuclear missiles fired (no pun intended) in a week.

Honestly, I'm concerned that there may be some kind of a 'purge' taking place...as it appears that Generals and Admirals are dropping right and left.

They are gutting our military by removing the senior leadership. It is not limited to our nuke forces.

They are getting rid of the officers that might be unwilling to push the button, possibly on US targets. The turnover in the upper echelons of the military is indeed suspicious. You must follow orders unquestionably.

Personal misbehavior?
Wonder what he did? can the military fire you for what you do in your personal life? I dunno.

Well, it wasn't a hooker.

An internal email obtained by the AP on Friday said the allegations against Carey stem from an inspector general probe of his behavior while on an unspecified "temporary duty assignment." The email said the allegations are not related to the operational readiness of the ICBM force or recent failed inspections of ICBM units.

Kodlick said the investigation is not yet completed. He would not provide details about the alleged misbehavior by Carey except to say it does not involve sexual misconduct.


But, I'll bet it involved alcohol.


At a Pentagon news conference, Kodlick was asked whether Carey's dismissal was alcohol-related. He did not respond directly but said Carey is not an alcoholic.

I believe you`re right.


The Night of the Long Knives
For all the power the Enabling Act gave Hitler, he still felt threatened by some in the Nazi Party. He was also worried that the regular army had not given an oath of allegiance. Hitler knew that the army hierarchy held him in disdain as he was 'only ' a corporal in their eyes. The Night of the Long Knives not only removed the SA leaders but also got Hitler the army's oath that he so needed.

Here`s how the history books will read 50 years from now.

For all the power the National Defense Resources Preparedness Act gave obama, he still felt threatened by some in the republican Party. He was also worried that the regular army had not given an oath of allegiance. obama knew that the army hierarchy held him in disdain as he was 'only ' a community organizer in their eyes. The Night of the Long Knives not only removed the opposition leaders in the military but also got obama the army's oath that he so needed.

I saw that story about the "alleged use of counterfeit casino chips" a few days ago. No charges have been brought though and it just seems a rather half arsed attempt at an official storyline for the masses.

Picture perfect.

The people that solemnly swore an oath to protect the constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC are being fired due to non compliance with the corrupted evil government. Am I right or am I right?

I wonder... Isn't his name the same as the woman who was shot it DC?

I've had the feeling that there is a purge going on too or at least a strong tug of war among various military factions. Though it's been that way since Adam gave up his spare rib no one one is talking, but I wonder just what is going on internally. People showing up dead, then a lot of retirements. Is there any way of finding out those stats?

Can and do. When you take the oath, and put the uniform on, your personal life becomes their personal life. If you have an affair you can be fired, even if it's with a civilian. There are any number of things you an do outside of uniform that can get you fired, dishonorably discharged, or worse.

No, that was the Naval commander that was fired. Gen. Carey's firing has been linked to alcohol use. I'm sorry but if it can be proved that he has an alcohol problem, he needs to be gone.

One of the biggest problems faced by the Air Force is the loss of the day to day nuclear mission. In the 80s, they handled them day in and day out, and never had these problems. Now they rarely handle them, no one wants to, and they take shortcuts, and make stupid decisions because they don't want to deal with them.

Is it even strategically possible to use nuclear weapons in a civil war or to suppress a population? If that is what is being suggested by the possibility of a purge.

Let's not forget your friends and acquaintances can also cause you to lose your clearances, and lead you to being fired as well.



Even bouncing a single check can lead you to being placed under review.

I highly doubt anyone is considering using nukes on the American population.

I would (and do) believe a purge is happening.

Not to put people in place to strike at the American civilians, but to put people in place that WOULD follow a "stand down" order.

Don't forget that the military can label you as an "alcoholic" if you have two drinks more than 3 times a week. Being a General means a social director as well as a military leader. Two business dinners and a few beers on Saturday can allow that brand to be put on anyone....

9 Nukes Stolen Bush/Cheney



We all know that Janet N. warned her in-coming successor of a disaster to which the likes we have never seen. We have the buying of large amounts of ammo... Food... Water... We are all trying to find that Dot that connects all these strange, corrupt events together. Is this it?

I have two thoughts on this. One is they want to shrink the number of commands in the military.

8/15/13 RD Bulletin: Major COCOM Consolidation Under Consideration

Second thought is. Did he try to send people home who were in charge of nukes as non essential employees? That would of been one way to protest government shut down. And I don't think the government would think twice about firing him for it.
