So the Obama regime trying to cut the Warthog which has been successful against ISIS, and this guy just happened to say what he said to stop the officers from talking to Congress? No problem there…
Via Daily Caller:
Thank You DC and Nick.Air Force Maj. Gen. James Post III has just been removed from his position for telling troops that testifying to Congress regarding the positive capabilities of the A-10 aircraft would be tantamount to treason.Post, a two-star vice commander at Air Combat Command, informed over 300 airmen in Nevada back in January that they shouldn’t be speaking to Congress about the aircraft. After major public outcry, the Air Force announced that it was beginning an investigation into exactly what occurred at the event.This investigation was undertaken by the Air Force inspector general and was strongly supported by Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, who urged the process on when it appeared to be stalling.
The A-10 is battle proven. Troops in tough spots love it. When they call for close air to ground support, having A-10s are what they want.
Want a closer look at that gatling gun in the nose?
It destroys tanks, bulldozers, locomotives, bunkers etc.
Here's the wiki on the aircraft itself.
If you're stupid enough to pick a fight with one of these, especially in light of how difficult they are to shoot down, you can pretty much kiss your ass goodbye.
