Top Brass at the Air Force Resign

The Washington Post reported that Secretary of Defense Robert Gates had accepted the resignations of two of the Air Force's top leaders: Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne and the service's chief of staff, Gen. Michael Moseley. Things haven't gone well at the Air Force lately. A bomber wing flew over the US with nuclear-tipped missiles and the Air Force mistakenly shipped secret nuclear missile fuses to Taiwan and didn't notice that they were missing for at least 18 months. Last but not least the service has had problems with corruption in at least one of its recent contracts.
