The Associated Press reports that there has been a shake up in the top echelons of U.S. military leadership.
Two-star Maj. Gen. Michael Carey is to be relieved of his command over the 20th Air Force. The unit is responsible for the Air Force’s entire nuclear arsenal.
The decision was made by Lt. Gen. James Kowalski, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command. Kowalski is in charge of all Air Force nuclear weapons, including bombers.
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.
Last month it was reported that numerous nuclear war heads had been secretly re-positioned without a paper trail to unknown destinations somewhere inside of the domestic United States.
It is not clear whether the termination of Major General Carey is related to this event, or if the official reason of misbehavior is, in fact, true.
