Principles vs. reality

The Air Force does not tolerate cheating, period. It's unacceptable. Most of our airmen believe in, abide by, and live our core values of integrity, service and excellence....When we know of those who don't, it takes courage to speak out, step up and set the right example.

The quote above came from a statement issued by Lieutenant General Stephen Wilson of the Global Strike Command of the United States Air Force. Others, however, allege that officers knew about and DID tolerate cheating at the Air Force's nuclear missile sites.

This is not the first time that an organization has strayed from its principles, and it will not be the last. In a world where a U.S. Attorney General ends up in prison, these things happen.
