“The fallout from an Air Force cheating scandal continues to spread, and now a significant portion of the leadership at a Montana nuclear base is getting sacked,” Defense One reports.  

“Nine officers in leadership positions were recommended for removal and are being reassigned, with Air Force Col. Robert Stanley, who oversees the missile crew, resigning, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said Thursday.”  

“The officials weren’t involved in the reported cheating, but James says ‘they failed to provide adequate oversight of their crew force.'”
