Air Force Faces Lawsuit After Contending It Has No Official Records About Anti-White Officer Quotas

The Center to Advance Security in America (CASA) filed a lawsuit on April 24, 2024 against the United States Air Force for allegedly exposing the branch’s efforts to establish racial diversity quotas when admitting new officers. 

Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., then-Air Force of Chief of Staff, changed the demographic goals for applicants aspiring to become officers in the Air Force in an August 2022 memo, describing the effort as “aspirational.” CASA is a watchdog group largely concentrated on security and civil liberties. 

CASA made a request for correspondence connected to the memo using a federal transparency law in 2023. When it became clear that the Air Force stated it couldn’t discover anything, CASA opted to file a lawsuit. 

CASA appealed the denial back in October, contending that  it “cannot be accurate” the Air Force was incapable of producing any responsive records to the request, the appeal letter highlighted. The explanation featured in the denial did not even tackle critical components of the FOIA request.

CASA argues that Brown’s August 2022 memo “undoubtedly” sparked internal discussions among staff members.. Furthermore, since the request featured some of the same language in the memo that was sent out to staff via email, it’s next to “impossible” that Air Education and Training Command (AETC) was not able to discover any communications matching the request according to CASA. 

The watchdog “lost hope” the Air Force would comply with the records request without involving the court, CASA Director James Fitzpatrick said to the Daily Caller. 

Brown currently serves as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He and other Air Force chiefs published a memo that directed AETC, which presides over pilot training,  and the US Air Force Academy (USAFA) to “develop a diversity and inclusion outreach plan aimed at achieving these goals no later than 30 September 2022.” The organizations were expected to report their progress on a yearly basis, which includes detailed description of measures implemented to bring in more non-white applicants.

“CASA will continue to push for more records and information related to this unprecedented push by the U.S. Air Force to develop racial quotas for Officers and Airmen in violation of federal nondiscrimination law,” Fitzpatrick said to the Daily Caller.

The memo established an objective to increase the percentage of non-white Americans in the applicant pool in an effort to address perceived injustices. Wokism has infected all corners of American society and its prominent institutions. Having national defense services get infected by wokism is a recipe for institutional decline and asking for a national security reversal to occur. 

If this mind virus is not contained, America will undergo an unprecedented decline across the board.
