US Air Force fires nine in nuclear missile cheating scandal

Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James (R) and Air Force Global Strike Command Commander Lt. Gen. Stephen Wilson, speak to the media during a briefing at the Pantagon, on March 27, 2014 in Arlington, VirginiaThe US Air Force said Thursday it sacked nine nuclear missile officers and will discipline dozens of others over an exam cheating scandal that has sparked concerns about lax ethics. The officers, including chiefs of four squadrons, were all working at Malmstrom Air Force base in Montana, which has been rocked by cheating allegations that implicated up to 100 airmen. “Nine officers in leadership positions at Malmstrom were recommended for removal,” Air Force Secretary Deborah James told a news conference. An internal investigation had found that the commanders had not engaged in any test cheating but had “failed to provide adequate oversight of their crew force,” James said.
