What The Military Did Just For One Woman Proves Things Are Too Far Gone…


The US Air Force is asking for an Inspector General investigation to take place following claims an unqualified female airman was pushed through special tactics officer training despite quitting.

However, the Air Force told American Military News that the charges are “factually wrong or lack of context,” and that training standards have changed in recent years.

An anonymous Air Force combat controller made the charges, which were initially reported on Twitter on Wednesday by Brian Kimber, an Air Force pararescue veteran, journalist, and podcaster. Navy SEAL veteran and Congressman Dan Crenshaw retweeted Kimber’s tweets the same day, calling on the military to handle the charges if they’re genuine and warning against breaking training standards, and also posted on Instagram.

On May 28, the former SEAL commander-turned-congressman issued a Twitter call to action, inviting military members to contact his office and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a former Army officer, with evidence that “woke ideology” had penetrated the ranks of the US armed services.

Crenshaw wrote, “We cannot sacrifice training standards. Ever. Full stop. If this account is true, our military needs to address it now. To be clear, there are lots of females that contribute enormously to Special Operations missions. But they get to that point by following strict standards which ensure they can be relied upon in combat. Subverting those standards will cost lives.”

In a The Daily Mail report:

According to the accuser, who has remained anonymous, a female captain was given more favorable treatment than is typical under ‘societal norms’ for airmen undergoing special tactics selection and training.

Special tactics airmen, under 24th Special Operations Wing, make up the service’s ground combat forces and embed with SEALs, Army Rangers and Marine Raiders to help call in airstrikes, provide medical care and recover wounded and slain personnel.

The training is as tough as it gets with the two-year combat controller training pipeline historically seeing between 70 and 80 percent of candidates drop out.

Personnel are to the technical and physical standards as other special operators such as Army Green Berets and Navy SEALs.

They also receive extensive training in the form of air traffic control and combat medicine in order for them to be capable of controlling a crowded airspace, call airstrikes and evacuate wounded troops from deep behind enemy lines.

Very few women have attempted the Air Force special warfare pipeline since the positions were opened to them in 2015.

Lt. Gen. Jim Slife, head of Air Force Special Operations Command, responded Thursday to accusations of lowered standards, saying they had come from an anonymous email.

Slife responded to the allegations on his official Facebook page. Part of his response was also shared on the command’s Instagram page.

“We can unequivocally say the standards — which are tied to mission accomplishment — have not changed,” Slife said. “However, there is a difference between standards and norms.”

According to the accuser, a female captain was given more favorable treatment than is typical under “societal norms” for airmen undergoing special tactics selection and training.

The accuser said the trainee was allowed to repeatedly quit then rejoin the pipeline and was offered an “unheard of” special assignment in one of the military’s most elite units to encourage her to keep going.

Slife said the “norms” of the training pipeline have changed over the past 15 years based on efforts to get airmen to meet standards. Although the standards are unchanged now, he said, they could be altered in the future.
