Navy Strategic Air Wing Commander Fired

Capt. Heather E. Cole

The Navy fired the commander of an organization whose aircraft allow the president and the secretary of defense to directly contact the submarines, bombers and land-based missiles that comprise the nation’s strategic nuclear force.

A Navy statement said Capt. Heather E. Cole was relieved of her duties as commander of Strategic Communications Wing 1, based at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, for what it called a “loss of confidence” in her ability to lead.

A spokeswoman, Cmdr. Jeannie Groeneveld, said the firing was based on findings of an investigation into her management of the wing. Details were not released.

A Pacfic Fleet Public Affairs statement said that the action resulted from the initial findings of an investigation, which determined that Cole had not performed up to the high standards demanded of an officer in command.



There is speculation about the true cause of Capt. Cole’s removal. I pray that this speculation is not true.

who the hell even put her on charge of such a sensitive position, she must of have been put in that position under some EO Obongo program. or there is something more sinister going on here the American people are not aware of. Obongo is looking to set off a nuke somewhere in the U.S. , like he tried in Charleston Harbor in S.C., but failed to do it, but the nukes are still missing. what ever he is doing is not working to completely destroy us, so he is getting more frustrated as his term comes to an end.

True Cause?

Subversion and Tyranny have cut deep into our society, but nowhere so deep as among the ranks of our armed services. Amongst those who have informal contacts, it has been suggested that she refused one or more “secret orders” regarding the use of force against American civilians.
Considering the specific responsibilities of her position, the implications of such “secret orders” are indeed profound, if true…
