Good reporting. I've studied that truncated report and would add that the fact that it took 18 months to release anything is part of the deception. Slow walking the release of information is a strategy all by itself. Dozens of pages totally blank. Blacked out sections throughout. They operate on tax payer money and are obligated to more transparency. Reading closely one realizes there could have been an inferno if the fuel tanks hand been punctured. Currently Fort Carson is in the process of seeking more helicopter landing zones on both United States Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands in our nearby mountains. It's only a matter of time before their antics set off a really big forest fire. Meanwhile their daily intrusions into that airspace continue to impact the serenity of our mountain landscapes.
Good one Ralph.
Well the Work Force Center at least gave someone a high paying job. What is its overall record? Boondoggle or godsend?
The old Christian war phrase was "praise the Lord and pass the ammunition" This bible thumper tight end coach seems to have changed it to "praise the Lord and pass me the ball".
It is important to note that PPACG got $805,000 from the Pentagon to do this "study". It was certainly mostly in house. Sprinkle in a few negative comments from those few who happened to find out about it and wrap up a neat package of support for business as usual. As the article points out the pollution of the Widefield aquifer is ignored. A month ago I called them and urged them to get involved. I got a brushoff which informed me that they couldn't do anything unless one of the government or military actors asked them to get involved. This report is not credible.
Accounting for all of these fires is extremely sketchy. In the one blamed on tank exhaust, Fort Carson originally stated that there was no training going on in the area of the fire. Otherwise it's a blanket "training" label with no specificity. If it were arson how would that be determined?
The first comment tries the deflection game. Ignore the issue and praise Glenn while ignoring his repeated lies and deception on the issue at hand. Even Glenn's belated admission is self serving and lacking in total honesty. He would have us believe he ended up in a judge's chamber with his mom with no prior contact with law enforcement. He savages his father just like he savaged his step brother in one of his earlier lies. Remember the charges were also dropped with his father. He keeps digging a deeper hole for himself
