AF general who said protesting A-10 decision was ‘treason’ removed from post – News – Stripes

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 service’s inspector general found that the comments by Maj. Gen. James Post, then the ACC vice commander, had a “chilling effect” and caused airmen to feel constrained about their right to speak to lawmakers about important issues, according to the command.

I’ve heard from someone who served with MG Post that he was a fine officer and leader.

On the other hand, the A-10 issue is so emotionally and politically charged, perhaps he should have known his remarks, which I suspect were intended somewhat humorously, would be scrutinized.

  1. So why wasn’t Missy Mullen removed from CJCS when he reprimanded General Mixon for his advocacy of his troops contacting their Congressmen over repeal of DADT? (Hint: He should have been)
