Former Space Force Commander, Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, was removed from command due to a podcast appearance to promote his new book which claims Marxist ideology is spreading throughout the military.
Officials said on Thursday, the Air Force Inspector General will investigate the situation due to its “complexity” and gravity.
Air Force Spokeswoman, Ann Stefanek, said, “The decision was made by the Department of the Air Force Inspector General due to the complexity and sensitivity of the issues under consideration, as well as the potential for DAF-wide impact.”
According to Military.com Lohmeier was reassigned to Buckley Air Force Base in a non-leadership role.
Since the incident, Lohmeier’s book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” became a number one bestseller on Amazon. It is currently out of stock.
