Man! I’ve not seen Civil Air Patrol on fire like that since Maj Gen Richard L. Bowling ‘s wasteful #46 crashed and burned at the 2002 Funai 250 in Richmond, Virginia. Do they trot him out much?

Bowling? HAHAHAHA. Bowling is the POS who gave us the embarrassment of Tony Pineda, introduced Paul J. Albano and who wasted corporate funds on the SER Cruise Ship Conference and the NASCAR scandal. Double Billin’ Bowlin’. Bowling should have been terminated with the others but emerged nearly unscathed.
“Do they trot him out,” you ask?
Only with the cadet nubes who don’t know the corrupt history. Look at the photo. That’s Bowling with SER CC Barry Melton as well as former Booze Allen employee and FAA Operations Supervisor and Larry Julian’s [redacted] Al Van Lengen. This current photo of the good fellas alone is worth five different stories on your blog.
Wait till we feed you the story on Carl Levin, Allen Peck, George Ross and Tom Harkin. You have most of this on your site, but not in the way the members will understand.
CAP has infiltrated both the FAA and the NTSB. You can verify this accusation and some details here: [link redacted]
Looking at a lot of the stuff on here, I’m slightly sad that LtCol Middleton is mixed in with this. I’ve met and talked with him on account of CAC and he’s an outstanding person from what I’ve seen so far.
Do you have a list of all the Civil Air Patrol people who also work for the FAA? I’m asking because of the NTSB “partnership” conflict of interest story that you released awhile back. Wouldn’t CAP also try to infiltrate the FAA to stack the deck on investigations just as they have done with the NTSB and as they have doled out rank to members of Congress?
Instead of you having to do all that work, maybe start making posts that are requests for information. You should get help from all over the US that way.
[Editor: We have some lists for CAP membership intersection with some FSDOs, including South Florida, Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Oklahoma City and Denver and a few others. We will consider your recommendation.]
The Civil Air Patrol has less than 60,000 members. Boy Scouts are 2+ million. While the revolving door spins fast and new recruits discover how filthy the people are, the Civil Air Patrol is ALSO deliberately kept somewhat small so that the corruption users can manage the complaints and lawsuits when each new generation of members discover it.
You nailed it. The CAP is intentionally kept small because less members are easier for the corrupt to control.
60,000 members, I beg to differ. It is around 35,000 members. Most are inactive and the vast majority, quit the first year. That is a FACT!
And a final point, the Scouts resolve problems while the CAP covers up and holds no one accountable. It has always been that way.
