Travis J. Tritten of Stars and Stripes reports that:
The Air Force general who told airmen that speaking to Congress about plans to retire the A-10 Thunderbolt amounts to treason has left his command position and been reprimanded, the Air Combat Command said Friday.
The A-10 “Warthog” is controversial. A vulnerable antique according to some; an invaluable close-air support asset, in the minds of others. The general has apologized for his “poor choice of words,” saying that:
“It was sincerely never my intention to discourage anyone’s access to their elected officials.”
But they shoot people for treason, don’t they? Seems like that is a discouraging prospect.
