The U.S. government wants to scrap the A-10 Warthog which has been very successful in fighting ISIS. In fact, it terrifies them.
Last month, Maj. Gen. James Post warned fellow airmen in Nevada that talking to Congress about the A-10 Thunderbolt could qualify as treason.
“If anyone accuses me of saying this, I will deny it … anyone who is passing information to Congress about A-10 capabilities is committing treason,” Post, vice commander of the Air Combat Command, told an audience of officers at Nellis Air Force Base according to the military blog John Q. Public.
The quote has been corroborated.
