Air Force Official Reprimanded For Restricting Military Personnel's Communication

Posted:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The vice commander of Air Combat Command has been reprimanded for attempting to restrict military personnel from lawfully communicating with members of Congress.

The Air Force Inspector General launched an investigation into Maj. Gen. James Post after receiving a tip about comments he made at a news conference at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, in January. Post said anyone who passes information to Congress about the A-10's capabilities is committing treason.

The Air Force wants to retire the 1970s era A-10 Warthog, but Congress has refused to go along with the plan.

Arizona Sen. John McCain's office was one of the original complainants about Post's comments.

The Air Force said Friday Post has been reassigned to an unspecified job on the staff at the Virginia-based Air Combat Command.
